Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff lit it up on Thursday night versus the Minnesota Vikings. Head coach Sean McVay has an idea of why his quarterback has been able to play at such a high level this season.

Goff played with the utmost confidence against the Vikings which resulted in him making some of the best throws of his young career. McVay feels his performance is indicative of how comfortable he feels, via Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk:

“I think just a comfort level,” McVay told reporters after the 38-31 win over Minnesota. “I think he’s got such a great command right now and you know he’s intentional about getting better. [Quarterbacks coach] Zac Taylor has done a great job with him. Really just having him make sure that he has an ownership of the game plan, understands what we’re trying to get done and you know that constant dialogue, that communication that we talk about being on the same page. At the end of the day I think he’s just thrown the ball extremely well. When things are in rhythm he’s been outstanding, giving guys a chance to run after the catch. Then you look at a couple of plays where we ended up running some bootlegs. He’s going to his left, getting his shoulders around, hitting [Brandin] Cooks in stride, hitting Robert Woods, so there’s a handful of plays that he made tonight that are just a great player making great plays, but then also when things were there in rhythm I thought he was outstanding.”

Goff is two weeks removed from the criticisms that he is just a “system QB” for a talented Rams squad. However, McVay quickly shot down the notion that his game plan was somehow compensating for Goff’s talent.

Goff solidified that notion against Minnesota with the best game of his career. He completed 26-of-43 passes for 465 yards and five touchdowns. Four of his touchdowns came in the first half and he finished the game with a perfect passer rating of 158.3. More importantly, he was able to lead the Rams to a 38-31 victory on primetime.

There is no question Goff has quite the supporting cast. The fact that he has a stellar offensive line and running back Todd Gurley is magnified by McVay’s genius play-calling. As a result, there is hardly enough credit to go around for this group on offense. The Rams can take solace in the fact that they are the only 4-0 team in the NFL.
