The Los Angeles Rams (8-0) defeated the Green Bay Packers (3-3-1) in dramatic fashion. A late-game fumble on a kick return kept the Rams undefeated season alive. LA rallied back from a 10 point deficit early in the 2nd quarter only to fight their way back to a victory. It was a back and forth battle between the two QBs all game, showing the rest of league that Goff is elite. Head Coach Sean McVay was impressed by the way the team can fight through many situations.
”That was a high-caliber, back-and-forth game,” Rams coach Sean McVay said. ”This team has demonstrated through eight games that while we have a long way to go, this team is capable of winning games in a bunch of different ways.”(source:msn.com/sports)
Todd Gurley continues to break records and make his way into the franchise’s history books. Gurley also became the 4th player ever in the NFL history with scoring more than 15 touchdowns through 8 games. Gurley tied the franchise record of consecutive games with a score (11) set by Elroy “Crazylegs” Hirsch set in 1950-51. He is playing on another level right now and looks locked in for MVP.
Goff has been playing lights out all season but, the last few weeks Goff has taken his talents to the next level. Keeping calm under duress is the difference between average and greatness. He has thrown for over 2,400 yards already on the season but he knows it takes more than just stats and scoring to win games.
“Why would we be worried?” Goff said, when asked if he the deficit caused him concern. “It’s a long game. I think to your point though, we do tend to score a lot of points and when we don’t, we can’t freak out and understand that there are four quarters and we’ve got a lot of time.”(source:espn.com)
Head Coach Sean McVay also praised QB Jared Goff after the game on how impressive he is under pressure. McVay took over the team 2 seasons ago, implementing his system that has benefited QB Jared Goff in many aspects. Players in McVay’s system have benefited greatly this season. As you can see, the stats have shown Goff and Gurley both are playing at MVP level.
