“We can be tantamount to we need to be, actually,” the fifth-year quarterback said after Monday night’s 27-24 triumph over Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. “We have everything before us. Everything is there for us to take.”
Goff tossed for 376 yards and three scores, and Matt Gay kicked a 40-yard field objective with 2:36 excess to lift the Rams once again into the lead position in the NFC West. Goff finished 39 of 51 passes, including short scoring tosses to Robert Woods, Van Jefferson and Cam Akers.
In the interim, the Rams’ guard compelled Brady throughout the night and fixed the success with tenderfoot security Jordan Fuller’s second capture of the six-time Super Bowl champion.
On offense, the Buccaneers neglected to hit on profound passes and didn’t have a culmination longer than 18 yards. Both of Brady’s block attempts went ahead failed tosses down the field.
“They worked admirably forestalling [the enormous play],” Brady said. “They play a guard that makes them intense to hit. Certainly feasible, but rather we didn’t hit any. I need to make a superior showing.”
Goff tossed a couple of capture attempts, as well, helping the Bucs (7-4) stay close in the subsequent half. Yet, when the Rams (7-3) required him to stand tall, he bounced back to lead them directly down the field to retake the lead after Brady attached it with his second TD pass.
“I’ve generally had faith in myself in any circumstance, however when you really do it in an extreme climate, it causes you to feel great,” Goff said.
“Jared just kept on exhibiting strength,” Rams mentor Sean McVay said. “I love the reality he was extraordinary from the bounce. We had that one little slip-up, and he just continued contending. What he did as far as driving us down the field at the main second was basic.”
Brady was 26 of 48 for 216 yards and two scores. The Rams terminated him once in the wake of getting to Russell Wilson multiple times in the earlier week’s 23-16 triumph over the Seattle Seahawks.
Gay, a 2019 Bucs draft pick who was delivered after a new kid on the block season set apart by irregularity, is the Rams’ third kicker in about a month.
“I discovered on Monday that the Rams were acquiring me,” Gay said. “It was a speedy flight so I could start testing so I could be qualified for the game. Saturday was the primary day I could be in the structure. Fortunately we played Monday night.”
