It seemed like it would never happen.
Having failed to do anything positive on the offensive side of the football, the Rams finally came to life behind the arm of quarterback Jared Goff. Goff completed three of four passes, including his first completion on third down, to move the ball into scoring position and despite a sack, Greg Zuerlein nailed a 53-yard field goal to tie the game.
Goff opened the drive with a seven-yard pass to Josh Reynolds. He hit Brandin Cooks for a 15-yard pickup two plays later for the Rams’ first back-to-back first downs of the night. It was the first time they have had multiple first downs on a drive.
They soon picked up another first. Goff connected with Robert Woods for 18 yards on third-and-six for their first third-down conversion of the night. Los Angeles got the ball down to the 26-yard line, but Goff was sacked for a nine-yard loss on third down.
