These aren’t your parents Los Angeles Rams. Okay, we’ve been wanting to use that for a while now. Anyway, this pass from Jared Goff to Sammy Watkins Thursday night against the San Francisco 49ers was absolutely brilliant.

Look at how Watkins tracked that ball in between two 49ers defensive backs. It was definitely a Willie Mays style play right there. And it resulted in 46 yards to set the Rams up for a field goal to take a 27-13 third quarter lead.
For his part, Goff has looked like a completely different quarterback this season. Maybe, adding someone of Watkins’ ilk to the mix has helped him progress under center.
