Jared Goff has played at an MVP level this year and has been a key factor in the Los Angeles Rams' march toward the postseason. However, he's still human after all, and LA's game against the Chicago Bears on Sunday night clearly revealed his biggest weakness: cold weather.


Goff has been surprisingly terrible in the two games the Rams have played in sub-30-degree weather this season (both away against the Bears and Broncos). Between these two games, Goff completed just 42 percent of his passes while tossing five interceptions and zero scores. 

The result? Goff scored just 12.14 FanDuel points combined between the two games. Is this a major call for concern? Only for the rest of the regular season really, but the postseason might be a different story.


How big are Jared Goff's hands? They measured nine inches at the combine, which, compared to Carson Wentz, who has 10-inch hands, was scrutinized heading into the draft. 

Goff has three fantastic matchups remaining on his schedule against the Philadelphia Eagles (home), Arizona Cardinals (away), and San Francisco 49ers (home), all of which are projected to occur in warm-weather conditions.


While that fact is great for fantasy owners looking to ride him to a title, for fans it's something to watch out for, not only the rest of this season but also moving forward.
