There was one particular game, however, in which his offense was stymied: last season's Week 11 loss in Minnesota, in which the Rams scored a season-low seven points and totaled just 254 yards, including 45 rushing and 209 passing. L.A. scored on its opening drive and didn't put another point on the board the rest of the day.
"I put us in some bad down-and-distance situations, didn't make very good calls and coach [Mike] Zimmer did and those guys made plays."
McVay's tough day included six drives of five or fewer plays, and a Cooper Kupp fumble at the goal line that flipped the game.
Through three games in 2018, L.A. rank third in points per game and yards per game, tied for fourth in passing yards per game, and sixth in rushing yards per game.
Goff certainly has Zimmer's attention heading into the TNF showdown.
"He's got a much better feel for the offense," Zimmer said. "He throws the ball a lot better than I thought a year ago. He's more accurate. ...
"He took a jump from his first year to his second year, but I feel like this year he's taken another jump -- a big jump."
