Sunday Funday: Remembering Jared Goff’s missed opportunity in Seattle

In December, 2016 rookie QB Jared Goff was given a gift by Seattle’s secondary…but he missed the opportunity.


During a cold Thursday night game on December 15, 2016, (then) rookie quarterback Jared Goff had driven his team 65 yards down the field in 11 plays to get his team inside the ten-yard line. Los Angeles lined up on the eight-yard line with a little under four and half minutes to go.

The Rams lined up in shotgun formation with trips on the left, and a running back to Goff’s right. When the ball was snapped, Seattle’s defense lost wideout Brian Quick running across the middle of the field…then, magic happened.

Safety Kam Chancellor was the closest to Quick, and that seems like it was purely on accidental that he was anywhere near the wide receiver. Seattle’s complete defensive collapse on the play gave the Rams a golden opportunity to take an early lead against the eventual division’s eventual champion.

LA would only end up scoring on one field goal near the end of the second quarter, as the Seahawks would go on to win 24-3.
