He takes pains to say he does not play against Tom Brady. His battle is against the opposing team’s defense.
But Rams quarterback Jared Goff achieved a milestone of sorts Monday night.
For the first time in three career tries, Goff came out ahead of Brady, the future Hall of Fame quarterback, in the Rams’ 27-24 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.
Goff engineered a game-winning drive with less than four minutes left, setting up new kicker Matt Gay’s 40-yard field goal.
