Watch: Jared Goff fires strike to Tavon Austin for first NFL touchdown pass

Sunday November 27th, 2016

Jared Goff’s first NFL touchdown pass was a beauty.

The Rams rookie hit Tavon Austin with a perfectly placed ball early in the first quarter against the Saints for a 24-yard score. 

Goff threw another touchdown early in the second quarter, a six-yard pass to Kenny Britt after a strip sack by Aaron Donald set the Rams up with a first-and-goal.

Goff fumbled later in the quarter but found Lance Kendricks for his third touchdown of the day just before the end of the half. 

Goff, the No. 1 pick in this year’s draft, made his first NFL start in last week’s game against the Dolphins. He did not throw any touchdowns or interceptions in the 14–10 loss.
