Jared Goff had 4 turnovers in the first half of Rams-Dolphins game

Goff only needed half a game to tie his career high.

NFL: Chicago Bears at Los Angeles Rams Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It didn’t take long for Jared Goff to have a bad game for the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. And it didn’t take long for that game to go from bad to worse.

Goff was responsible for a whopping four turnovers in the first half of the Rams game against the Miami Dolphins, with three of those four leading to a Miami touchdown. Coming into the game, Goff’s career high for turnovers in an entire game was four — against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2019, and against the Chicago Bears in 2018.

He needed only half a game to match that on Sunday.

Goff spread his turnovers around, with two by way of interception, and two by way of a lost fumble. One came in the first quarter, and the other three in the second.

The first fumble lost was the most costly, as the Rams had second and goal in a tied game when Goff was strip-sacked by Emmanuel Ogbah.

Andrew Van Winkel recovered the ball, and returned it 78 yards for a touchdown.

The four turnovers were the most by any NFL team in a single half this season. Not exactly the type of record that Los Angeles was hoping to set.

The Rams now have a big hole to climb out of in the second half. After scoring first, they enter halftime trailing 28-10, and Miami gets the ball to start the second half. They did end the half on a high note, with Goff marching the Rams down the field for a field goal in the waning moments of the second quarter.


Should the Rams bench Jared Goff for the second half?
