Stu Jackson, writer for the Los Angeles Rams posted an article today recapping quarterback Matthew Stafford’s first season and Super Bowl season with the Rams. Jackson’s article was broken up into sections that included Stafford’s first time in the horned uniform, training camp, facing his former team the Detroit Lions, and of course the Super Bowl.
What is your favorite singular Stafford moment of this season?
The No Look Pass in the final drive of Super Bowl 56
The most memorable throw for most people will naturally be the game winning score which was a fade from Stafford to Kupp. I would rank that higher as a team play but as far as singular feat from the quarterback, the no look pass from Stafford to Kupp for a 22 yard first down on that drive was a more impressive pass than the spot on but routine fade pass for the touchdown. Some would still consider the no look a bit of trick shot, but on footballs biggest stage, with no room for error and completely justified in necessity, Stafford leveraged one of his most unique skills to complete a pass that was required for the Super Bowl win.
