Jared Goff – Loser

Going into last week, Jared Goff was firing on all cylinders and had his Rams at 11-1 and first in the NFC. A win against the Bears and Goff could keep his Rams in first place and stay a game up against the Saints.

Unfortunately for the Rams, the Bears defense made Jared Goff look like the Jeff Fisher era Goff. The Bears defense dominated Goff, getting in his face all game and forcing him into poor decisions all game long. The Bears held him to only 180 passing yards, zero touchdowns, and 4 interceptions. Goff would end the game with a Quarterback rating of 6.2.

The good news for Rams fans is they don’t have a ton to worry about going forward. The Rams have a favorable remaining schedule and Goff is still having a great year. It is slightly concerning if the Rams have to face the Bears later in the playoffs. But Goff and the Rams are still in a good position for a deep playoff run.
