Give Me 5: Jared Goff's top plays from the season's second half

As the Rams enter the offseason, it's time to check out some of the team's top plays from the regular season's second half and the postseason.

Here are the top five plays from quarterback Jared Goff.

No. 5

The Rams expanded their fourth quarter lead in the desert thanks to a dime from Goff to wide receiver Robert Woods, who caught the ball in stride up the right sideline.

The Rams went on to beat the Cardinals 31-9 in Week 16, becoming one win closer to the NFC's No. 2 seed in the playoffs and a sweep of the NFC West.

No. 4

Goff turned on the burners to help close out the Divisional round's tight one against the Cowboys in Los Angeles.

With just under two minutes remaining, the young quarterback called his own number on 3rd-and-7 and ran to his right for a new set of downs. Goff made the smart decision to spin off the back of tight end Tyler Higbee as he laid a crucial block to stay in bounds and let the clock tick down.

The Rams were able to pick up a first down and kneel it out from there, advancing to their first NFC title game since the 2001 season.

No. 3

Goff showed guts once again the following week in the NFC Championship game's first half, battling through communication issues and crowd noise to keep things manageable down early with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.

In the Rams' first touchdown-scoring drive to close the first half, Goff completed four passes in the hurry-up, the longest of which went 36 yards into the bread basket of wide receiver Brandin Cooks — perfectly setting up running back Todd Gurley's six-yard dash into the paint to bring the score to 13-10 entering the break.

No. 2

Goff continued to complete passes when it mattered most in the Superdome and made one of his top throws of the season off schedule, off his back foot to tight end Gerald Everett, facing pressure on 3rd-and-3 in the fourth quarter. Everett took the reception 39 yards into Saints territory in the biggest play of the drive that set up a 24-yard field goal from kicker Greg Zuerlein to tie the game at 20.

No. 1

Goff went toe to toe with quarterback Patrick Mahomes in Week 11's Monday Night Football instant classic and put up some of the best numbers of his career. The former Cal Bear completed 31-of-49 passes for 413 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions in the game. He also added a rushing touchdown in the 54-51 win.

Goff's play of the game, however, was a 40-yard shot to Everett up the right sideline and into the end zone for the go-ahead score late. The connection gave the Rams the lead and the defense got it done from there, giving the Rams their 10th win of the season heading into the Week 12 bye.
