QB - LAR
This Week Outlook
Jared Goff completed 21-of-27 passes for 174 yards and a touchdown in a 32-18 loss to the Packers in the divisional round of the playoffs.
Goff had a high completion percentage in this game (77.8), but wasn't able to do enough to overcome a high-powered Packers offense on Saturday. He finished the regular season throwing for just under 4,000 yards, with 20 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Because of his inability to generate much production on the ground, Goff is nothing more than a mid-range QB2 in 2021.
Jared Goff (thumb) will be the Rams' starting quarterback in Saturday's Divisional Round matchup against the Packers.
John Wolford (neck) has been ruled out, so the team is once again turning to Goff despite his thumb injury. Goff was apparently healthy enough to dress for last weekend's game against Seattle, but he wasn't healthy enough to start. Perhaps he is healthier seven days later, however. Blake Bortles will be his backup if things go awry. Of course, LA is likely to ride Cam Akers and the running game in this one.

QB John Wolford (neck) didn't practice on Tuesday. Goff doesn't appear to be 100 percent healthy but Wolford's injury means he'll once again play the majority of snaps at quarterback this weekend. His lingering thumb injury is a downgrade for this passing attack.
Jared Goff (thumb) entered the game late in the first quarter after John Wolford got knocked out, and completed 9-of-19 passes for 155 yards and a touchdown in a 30-20 win over the Seahawks.
Goff completed just 47.4 percent of his passes, but was able to do just enough to get the win over a divisional foe in the first round of the playoffs. He'll likely start in the divisional round of the playoffs, but expect another heavy dose of Cam Akers on offense with Goff still working through the thumb injury.
Rams QB Jared Goff (thumb) has been officially activated for Saturday's Wild Card matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.
Goff was questionable throughout the week as he dealt with recovery from thumb surgery after breaking it on a player's helmet in Week 16. After getting a win with back-up quarterback John Wolford in Week 17, the Rams will welcome Goff's return on the road against their divisional foe Saturday afternoon in Seattle.
