The Los Angeles Rams are off to strong start out of the gate boasting one of the league’s best records that have been fueled by their potent offense led by rising star quarterback Jared Goff.
The 23-year-old has been off to a stellar start playing some of the best football of his brief NFL career that has helped create much buzz around the team’s chances toward competing for a Super Bowl this season. Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has added to that chatter by voicing by taking to social media to state that Goff is the best quarterback that he has played with in his career.
Goff has taken his game to the next level this season as he ranks among the top producing quarterbacks in the league as he’s second with 1,406 yards and 11 touchdown passes along with holding an NFL-best 127.3 passer rating. He has also thrown for more than 300 yards in each of the last three games including multiple touchdown passes three times this season.
The third-year quarterback is coming off a career-best performance in the 38-31 win over the Minnesota Vikings where he methodically tore apart their secondary by completing 26-of-33 passes for a career-high 465 yards, a career-best five touchdown passes, and a perfect passer rating of 158.3. Goff has a tremendous amount of confidence in his ability on the field while being able to make all the throws necessary in tight space with pinpoint accuracy.
Granted, the Rams have a plethora of talent around him in running back Todd Gurley along with wide receivers Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, and Cooper Kupp, Goff has been able to utilize that while showcasing the ability to playmake with his arm.
This alone has made Los Angeles a highly daunting challenge for any opposing defense to deal with. All of this has simply put his team in the spot to potentially make a strong run deep in the playoffs and possibly much further than that.
