Goff Named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

Goff Named NFC Offensive Player of the Week”

The prolonged agony continued for the Giants (1-7) when L.A. special teams player Cory Littleton blocked Brad Wing's punt giving the Rams the ball at the NY 18-yard line.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - After a full month away from the Coliseum, the Los Angeles Rams are returning home as a bona fide playoff contender.

KEYS TO THE GAME: Just a little more than a week ago, this looked like a surprising midseason showdown.

It was a textbook display from Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff on how to play the position when he delivered a spiral Sunday along with a snapshot of why he was drafted first overall a year ago.

Midway through the season in his eight starts, Goff has already passed for 2,030 yards, 13 touchdowns and four interceptions for a 97.9 passer rating.

The Los Angeles Rams did not make any significant changes to their roster this season. The Rams hope to use that to their advantage against the Texans by getting on the board early with their high-powered offense and forcing Houston to play catchup. And I certainly did not think I would be working on an article that would favorably compare this year's L.A. squad with a legendary Super Bowl winning 1999 Rams team that stunned the world. With Savage under center, the Texans, who had been the No. 3 scoring team in the league, managed just 14 points in a loss to the Colts. Rams defensive end Aaron Donald forced a fumble near midfield while sacking Giant quarterback Eli Manning.

-Texans QB Tom Savage vs. Rams pass rush. Houston has made 20 offensive plays of at least 25 yards this season, one of the NFL's best totals.

"Our team's got a lot of confidence right now, but we know that it's a week-to-week business and if you're not ready to go next Sunday at one o'clock when we play the Texans, you get humbled very quickly in this league".

-Rams RB Todd Gurley vs. Texans run defense. He had 138 yards on 37 carries with two touchdowns before being sidelined. The young signal-caller averaged 14.1 yards per attempt and 22.2 yards per completion en route to a 146.8 passer rating.

The maturation of Goff at age 23 and his collaboration with creative 31-year-old head coach Sean McVay, the youngest head coach in National Football League history, has become a major storyline.

PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins. Five plays later wide receiver Robert Woods caught a short slant, cut back and weaved 52 yards for an unlikely touchdown on a third-and-33 play. He's on pace to shatter the Houston record of 11 touchdown receptions and has scored in five straight games. One of the main reasons why the Rams were able to come through with the 51-17 win over the Giants was due to another solid performance by Jared Goff on offense, and believe it or not, the Rams quarterback's play helped him earn some much deserved honors as well. S Eddie Pleasant had a career-high two sacks and a forced fumble in Week 9, his first career multi-sack game.
