Jared Goff's Week 4 passing chart is a thing of beauty

Jared Goff's Week 4 passing chart is a thing of beauty

Jared Goff reacts to the Rams' 38-31 win over the Vikings and explains how it feels to start the season 4-0. McVay's current and former prize pupils put on a show at the Coliseum, but Goff finished 26 of 33 with a flawless 158.3 quarterback rating.

Goff's first touchdown pass was an 8-yard throw to Todd Gurley.

Los Angeles quarterback Jared Goff completed 78.8 percent of his 33 passes for 465 yards, five touchdowns and a flawless 158.3 quarterback rating. Goff hit Kupp in stride for a 70-yard touchdown.

Cousins passed for 422 yards and three touchdowns, but the Vikings lost when Los Angeles rookie defensive lineman John Franklin-Myers strip-sacked Cousins near midfield with 1:18 to play. But thanks to the hiring of Sean McVay that resulted in the offense immediately making the necessary adjustments to get on the right track, Goff and the Rams have quickly become one of the most unsafe offensive units in all of football.

A healthy throng of purple-clad fans turned out for the Vikings' first game in Los Angeles since 1993.

It doesn't get much better than that.




But McVay then had to watch apprehensively while his former prize pupil almost executed a comeback for the Vikings (1-2-1).

In fact, here are three reasons why the third-year quarterback just took a major leap when it comes to building a strong case for being part of the conversation since Goff is playing at a MVP level after the first month of the 2018 season. To go against him and kind of duke it out, I told him after the game that I appreciated it.

"We did not play well defensively, " Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. On Thursday, the Rams moved the ball at will, and no matter where Goff put the ball someone was wide open. I've not ever had a team that's been this poor in pass coverage. He spread the ball around, too, getting Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks all over 100 yards receiving with four total touchdowns between them. "We are going to have to look at everything".

Less than two-and-a-half minutes later, Goff hit Cooks down the middle for a 47-yard score.

"It's nearly like you're throwing it away and Cooper did a great job saving them a little bit of room, and Jared put it in about a six-inch box that he could only fit it into". Four of Goff's five passing touchdowns came in the first half, a glaring figure for a defense that let QBs run rampant in the first half in back-to-back weeks.
