LOS ANGELES -- Rams quarterback Jared Goff hoped that when coach Sean McVay relayed the "Halle Berry" playcall Sunday that the stadium would be quiet enough for it to be heard on TV -- and for the actress herself to hear it.
Goff became a giddy kid when told in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum locker room following the Rams' 36-31 victory over the Seattle Seahawks that Berry tweeted about his pre-snap shoutout.
"Wait, hold on, are you serious?" Goff said. "She heard it!"
Goff quickly searched for Berry's tweet, then grew increasingly animated as he showed it to teammates and coaches.
"It's so funny," Goff said. "The thing is, when [McVay] called it, I was like, 'It's so quiet right now, this is going to get on TV.'"
Goff would not reveal the details of the play but said to check with McVay, who was responsible for naming it. McVay would not disclose why the play was named after Berry, given that the reason is likely tied to the design of the play.
But the coach did say that if Berry was asking, to tell the Oscar-winning actress that it certainly was meant as a compliment.
"She's a very attractive woman that players know," McVay said. "And it's related to the play."
The play resulted in an 8-yard pass from Goff to tight end Tyler Higbee.
