Just a season after advancing to their first Super Bowl since 2001, the Los Angeles Rams failed to make the playoffs in 2019. While the team had its ups and downs, many pointed at Jared Goff as the most glaring issue.

Without a doubt, Goff has benefited from having Sean McVay as his head coach. But for one of the first times under McVay, Goff faced adversity in 2019.
