Watch: Jared Goff goes off for career day against the Vikings

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff had a career day against the Vikings. He threw five touchdowns, completing TD passes of 8, 70, 19, 47 and 31 yards.

"We protected really well all night, did a good job of keeping me upright," said Goff, who had a career-high 465 yards passing. "Whenever that happens, we have a chance for the guys to get outside.

"That team is really good. We were lucky to come away with a win tonight."

Superlatives reached by Goff vs. the Vikings:

  • He is the third quarterback in the Super Bowl era with a perfect passer rating (158.3) on at least 30 passes (Kurt Warner in 2000 and Ken O'Brien in 1986).

  • His five passing TDs are tied for most in Rams history and most since Warner in 1999.

  • His 465 pass yards are the third most in Rams history behind 554 by Norm Van Brocklin (1951) and 509 by Vince Ferragamo (1982).

  • He is the first quarterback in NFL history with 350 passing yards and a 75 percent completion rate in three straight games.
