Rams QB Jared Goff gives behind-the-scenes look at usual practice day
Most of what fans see from NFL players happens on Sundays. Sure, there are some behind-the-scenes looks on social media, but game days are when players are at the forefront. What fans don’t see is the grind they go through during the week preparing for each game.
The Los Angeles Rams shared a video this week giving everyone a look at a typical day in the life of Jared Goff. It shows him heading to the team facility before the crack of dawn, heading home with the sun already down and going through a practice.

Jared Goff ecstatic Halle Berry heard him use her name as audible call
Jared Goff is quickly learning the perks that come with playing in Los Angeles.
As one of the new stars of L.A., Goff has been getting a lot of attention. He and Sean McVay have embraced it with some of the best audible calls in the league, which came to the forefront last season with “Ric Flair” and “Obama.” On Sunday against the Seahawks, Goff yelled out another celebrity’s name.
“Halle Berry. Halle Berry. Halle Berry. Turbo, set!”
The actress caught wind of Goff’s audible call and responded on Twitter.

Jared Goff is 4th Rams QB ever with consecutive 3,000-yard seasons
Jared Goff’s NFL career got off to a shaky start, and that’s putting it lightly. He went 0-7, was sacked 26 times and had just five touchdowns to seven interceptions. People were (wrongly) labeling him a bust after only seven games, but he’s proved every doubter wrong the past two seasons.
He was a Pro Bowler in 2017 and is well on his way to earning another selection this season with 22 touchdown passes and six interceptions, averaging 9.4 yards per attempt. He also has the second-most yards in the league (3,134), his second straight season with at least 3,000 yards passing.
With that, he became only the fourth Rams quarterback ever to reach 3,000 yards in at least two consecutive seasons. The others? Jim Everett from 1988-92, Kurt Warner from 1999-2001 and Marc Bulger in 2003-04. That’s it.
Reaching 3,000 yards passing nowadays is far different than it was 20 years ago, but let’s not sell Goff short. He’s had back-to-back fantastic seasons for a total of 50 touchdowns and 11 interceptions with a passer rating of 105.6. Not many quarterbacks can match those numbers.
It’s obviously still early, but Goff has been nothing short of fantastic in L.A.

OK, let's put this Tom Brady 'noodle arm' narrative to bed real quick
Of Brady's 20 incompletions, at least four can be credited to drops. There were several throwaways with pass rushers in his face. A few fell incomplete due to what looked like miscommunication between Brady and Josh Gordon (Chris Hogan too). The Titans made four pass breakups, and mainly due to tight coverage and not slow, fluttering footballs.

There's pretty much one (one!) incompletion that you can even argue was the result of declined arm strength. On third-and-4 in the second quarter, Brady whipped it toward James White at the sticks, but the throw landed low and short. Even that might have been a bit of a throwaway; Brady was definitely trying to put the ball where only White could get it. But sure, give them the "noodle arm" on that one.

Rams vs. Seahawks: Studs and duds from L.A.’s Week 10 win
Studs
Aaron Donald
The Rams came into this game 14-0 in the past two seasons when Donald has a sack. That streak continued on Sunday with 2.5 more sacks and another win as the Seahawks had no answer for the All-Pro defensive tackle. He had three tackles for loss and five quarterback hits, constantly finding himself around Russell Wilson.
Donald now has 12.5 sacks on the year, which leads the NFL. He also set a single-season record by a Rams defensive tackle and posted a new career-high. He’s the front-runner for Defensive Player of the Year.
Jared Goff
Goff was excellent on Sunday against the Seahawks. He was 28-for-39 with 318 yards and two touchdowns, committing zero turnovers on the day. He made a couple of especially great throws to Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks, which the receivers made great plays on. He also scrambled when necessary and escaped a couple of potential sacks by leaving the pocket. Overall, it was a phenomenal game from the 2017 Pro Bowler, who seems to be well on his way to another selection.
Todd Gurley
Gurley was gashing the Seahawks defense left and right on the ground, ripping off big run after big run. His longest was just 17 yards, but he racked up 120 yards on only 16 carries, which goes to show how consistently he gained 5-plus yards. He also scored his 17th touchdown of the season and extended his scoring streak to 13 games, mixing in 40 yards on three receptions. He was a big reason for the Rams’ win on Sunday, hardly ever coming off the field, if at all.

Rams’ Wade Phillips: Aaron Donald is the ‘best player in the league’
In Sean McVay’s first season with the Los Angeles Rams, he and his players swept just about every major award. He won Coach of the Year, Aaron Donald won Defensive Player of the Year and Todd Gurley settled for Offensive Player of the Year after barely missing out on NFL MVP.
It’s not often a team has the best coach, offensive and defensive players in the league, but that’s exactly what the Rams had last season. And even though none won MVP, they might have the best overall player in football.

Rams Week 10 report card: Grading every position vs. Seahawks
Quarterback
It feels like we’re saying this every week, but Jared Goff was outstanding on Sunday. He completed 28 of 39 passes for 318 yards and two touchdowns, posting a passer rating of 113.0. Brandin Cooks was his favorite target with 10 catches for 100 yards, but he mixed in players at every level, including two touchdowns to his tight ends. If Goff continues to play like this every week, the Rams will be in good shape.
Grade: A
Running back
Todd Gurley didn’t touch the ball as much as he typically does, getting just 16 carries and three receptions, but he was extremely efficient. He racked up 160 yards and a touchdown on those 19 touches, including a 20-yard reception and 17-yard run. Malcolm Brown spelled him for eight snaps and had a 10-yard catch, but this one was all about Gurley in the backfield. Had he gotten 20 carries, he would have approached 200 yards from scrimmage.
Grade: A

Rams offensive line ranked 2nd in NFL by PFF through 9 weeks
One aspect of the team that doesn’t get nearly enough credit is the offensive line, which has been nothing short of phenomenal this season. Andrew Whitworth is playing as well as ever, Rob Havenstein has only gotten better since his extension and Austin Blythe proved to be an upgrade over Jamon Brown.
Rodger Saffold and John Sullivan have both held their own, too, making for a near-dominant unit up front. The success of offensive lines is difficult to measure because of the nature of the position, but Pro Football Focus grades every player in the league and knows how well the Rams’ group has been playing.
According to PFF, the Rams are ranked second in the league, only trailing the Steelers.

Aaron Donald sets Rams record, career-high with 12 sacks in 10 games
Aaron Donald won his first Defensive Player of the Year award in 2017 by notching 10 sacks and a league-high 91 quarterback pressures. He was unstoppable up front for the Rams despite missing the first and last games of the season and sitting out all of training camp.
As good as he was last year, he’s been even better in 2018. On Sunday against the Seahawks, he recorded two sacks in the first 22 minutes of the game. That gave him 12 on the season, which is a new career-high, passing his previous best of 11.
Additionally, he set the Rams’ single-season record for sacks by a defensive tackle.

How a bizarre late-game sequence nearly cost the Rams a win Sunday
In the NFL, you take wins however you can get them. With just 16 games in a season, each is more important than the last and the Los Angeles Rams are undoubtedly learning that in 2018. At 9-1, they’re in firm control of the NFC West with a chance to clinch the division next Monday night. That’s made possible by their 36-31 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at the Coliseum, narrowly escaping their home field with a close victory.
They’re fortunate to have won that game considering how undisciplined they were throughout, too. They committed 10 penalties for 102 yards, including five personal fouls. Their sixth personal foul was offset by a flag on the Seahawks after Aaron Donald attacked Justin Britt.

Rams' Jared Goff happy his 'Halle Berry' playcall was heard by the actress
LOS ANGELES -- Rams quarterback Jared Goff hoped that when coach Sean McVay relayed the "Halle Berry" playcall Sunday that the stadium would be quiet enough for it to be heard on TV -- and for the actress herself to hear it.
Mission accomplished.
Goff became a giddy kid when told in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum locker room following the Rams' 36-31 victory over the Seattle Seahawks that Berry tweeted about his pre-snap shoutout.
"Wait, hold on, are you serious?" Goff said. "She heard it!"
Goff would not say why the playcall was named after her, for fear of giving away the play.
But McVay said he named the play after Berry because of her beauty, and that it was a compliment to the Oscar winner.
