Jared Goff: "I need to Do a Better Job" 

Sunday Night Football has not been kind to the Rams.

Particularly quarterback Jared Goff.

Playing in the national spotlight in the last two weeks, Goff has not played up to the standard that he's set for himself since Sean McVay took over as head coach. In Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Eagles, Goff finished 35-of-54 passing for 339 yards with a pair of interceptions.

Combining those numbers with those from the Bears game in Week 14, Goff has completed just 56 percent of his passes for 519 yards with no touchdowns and six interceptions over past two games. He's also averaging just 5.3 yards per attempt in that span — a far cry from his season average of 8.6 yards per attempt entering Week 15.

Still, Los Angeles' lack of offensive production — especially when compared to where the team was earlier this season — is certainly not all on Goff. And that's how head coach Sean McVay framed it after the game.

"There is concern about just our overall operation, with regards to just the way that we played specific to the offense the last couple weeks," McVay said. "It starts with me — got to do a better job. We've all got to do better."

And yet, there are also elements of the game that Goff clearly must improve. Probably the most glaring from Sunday night was a play late in the third quarter, with Los Angeles down 23-13.
