2. Make Jared Goff beat you
Statistically speaking, Jared Goff has been one of the best quarterbacks in all of the NFL over the last two seasons. However, Goff also has had a myriad of weapons at his disposal and has had one of the best offensive coaches mentoring him in Sean McVay.
That is not to take away from what Goff has done in the NFL thus far, not at all. He is still the one making the throws and conducting the offense, after all. However, it can be easier to do so when the table is already partially set for you.
We have seen at certain times that when faced with a different oulook than he was expected or when it does not come quite as easily, Goff struggles and begins to look like the fourth-year quarterback that he is.
He was terrible in the Super Bowl, probably in large part due to the team not having a running game and he did not look all that impressive in Week 1.
Goff has come up big when the moment was big before and he did play a really good second half against the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship. However, if we are playing the numbers game, there is a much higher chance that Goff cannot give that extra bit of leadership in big moments, where someone like Drew Brees can.
