Goff completed 19 of 38 pass attempts for 229 yards and one interception during Sunday's 13-3 loss to the Patriots. Goff struggled on the big stage, completing just 50 percent of his passes for 6.0 yards per attempt. He nearly completed a pair of touchdown passes to Brandin Cooks, only to see Patriots defenders break the play up on both occasions, though arguably Cooks could have made his quarterback look great had he made a tough catch. All in all, it was a disappointing performance for Goff, who played well in a 26-23 victory over the Saints in the NFC Championship Game. He was coming off a breakout regular season in which he totaled 4,688 passing yards to go along with a completion percentage of 64.9 and a 32:12 TD:INT.
Goff completed 25 of 40 passes for 297 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the Rams' 26-23 overtime win over the Saints in Sunday's NFC Championship Game. He also rushed three times for 10 yards and lost a fumble but recovered. In a game that featured decidedly fewer offensive fireworks than during the regular-season meeting between the two teams, Goff still delivered a strong final line, and most important, spearheaded a Super Bowl-clinching win. The third-year pro didn't have his usual connection with Robert Woods going, as the Saints limited the veteran downfield while holding him to six catches for 33 yards. However, Goff successfully pivoted to Brandin Cooks, who touched up his old squad for seven grabs and 107 yards. Goff also connected with Josh Reynolds successfully on several key completions in the second half, and he made two key connections with Tyler Higbee under pressure on what would turn out to be the game-winning drive. Goff will now try to replicate his strong effort in two weeks' time during a Super Bowl matchup against the winner of the Patriots-Chiefs showdown later Sunday.
Goff completed 15 of 28 pass attempts for 186 yards, adding six rushes for 12 yards during Saturday's 30-22 win against the Cowboys. Goff very nearly hooked up with Brandin Cooks for a second-quarter touchdown strike, but it was ruled that Cooks failed to maintain possession going to the ground as Los Angeles was forced to settle for a Greg Zuerlein field-goal try moments later. The third-year quarterback's most pivotal play may have come on the final drive, as he scampered for 11 yards on third-and-long to help the Rams run out the clock on Dallas' comeback bid. Goff owns a 5:0 TD:INT ratio over his past three outings, but he's averaged an unspectacular 200.3 passing yards per game over that span. Awaiting in the NFC Championship Game is a bounce-back opportunity regardless of the outcome of Sunday's Eagles-Saints tilt, as both teams ranked bottom five against the pass during the regular season.
Goff completed 15 of 26 passes for 199 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 48-32 win over the 49ers. Goff had an early exit for the second straight week with the Rams winning 45-17, as backup Sean Mannion entered the game in the closing stages of the third quarter. The 24-year-old rebounded the last two games by completing 34 of 50 passes for 415 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions after a rough three-week stretch to begin December. Los Angeles secured the No. 2 seed in the NFC and will now have a week to rest up before hosting in the divisional round.
Goff completed 19 of 24 passes for 216 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in the Rams' 31-9 win over the Cardinals on Sunday. He also rushed twice for six yards and another score and lost a fumble. Goff's one blemish was a first-quarter lost fumble on a sack, but he otherwise largely redeemed himself after a difficult last two games in particular. The third-year signal-caller was able to connect with Robert Woods for a 39-yard score in the fourth quarter to close out his day, a play preceded by a one-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Goff's solid effort provides him with a welcome dose of late-season momentum, and he'll look to help the Rams clinch a No. 2 seed and first-round bye in Week 17 against the 49ers.
