Los Angeles Rams: Jared Goff Helps Take Down Seahawks

Wolford got the start because Goff’s thumb wasn’t fully healed yet after the surgery. John Wolford completed 3-of-6 passes for 29 yards. He also rushed for two yards on one carry. Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams hurt him.
Wolford was in good spirts after the game and he returned to the locker rooom.

Cam Akers helped him out big time with 131 yards rushing on 28 carries and a touchdown. He also caught two passes for 45 yards receiving.
Cooper Kupp caught four passes for 78 yards receiving and a touchdown.

Super Bowl Bound?
