They will now watch the outcome of Monday’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Jared Goff, the quarterback, was a major factor in the team’s win as he dominated the first few minutes of play. From the first drive, he demonstrated his mastery of the game by completing his first 11 passes and concluding the first half 16 of 18 for 194 yards and a touchdown. He ultimately went 22-for-27 for 277 yards and a touchdown at the end of the game. In the fourth quarter, he finished the game with two crucial first down passes while playing without making any mistakes.PFF Interior Defender Rankings: Top 32 ahead of the 2023 NFL season | NFL  News, Rankings and Statistics | PFF
