Keeping Up with Brady v. Goff: Who Will Reign Supreme?
January 31, 2019
In a battle of the quarterbacks, who will be crowned victor? Stay tuned to find out.
This year, the New England Patriots will face the Los Angeles Rams at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta for Sunday's upcoming big game.
While it might be Jared Goff’s first Super Bowl, there is no obvious victor in this year’s big game. Sure, there are prediction percentages and technical reviews. But, when it comes to the actual game, anything can happen.
So, who’s worthy of your support this year? Let’s take a look at each quarterback’s 2018 highlights, and how you can keep up with the performances of each during the big game.
The New Kid on the Block
The Ryan Gosling look-alike has been a buzz-worthy topic this season (for more than just his celebrity appearance). The 24-year-old has proven himself a machine on the field. After being drafted by the Rams in 2016, he has started every single game
For the non-sports fans, we’ll leave out the football specifics. But, here’s what you should know.
All season, Goff’s name has been thrown around with the best in the industry. Think Patrick Mahomes, Drew Brees, and even Tom Brady. He’s lead his team to victory on countless occasions and (4,688 yards, 32 touchdowns, and a 64.9 completion percentage). While he’s relatively new to the playing field, he’s consistent. And that is what makes him such a valuable player (and a large threat to the 32-time-championship team, the Patriots).

The 9-Time Veteran
Then, there’s Tom Brady - the 41-year-old veteran whose name is never left out of a football conversation (and for good reason). Brady is notorious for his record-setting statistics (this year, he achieved 4,355 yards, 29 touchdowns, and a 65.8 completion percentage) and many football fans are expecting the same level of achievement in Sunday’s big game.
Much like Goff, Brady’s career started off on a high. Although Brady was a 6th round pick for the Patriots (compared to Goff who was a 1st round pick), he proved himself invaluable. In his second season with the Patriots, Brady began his 16-season streak of leading the Patriots to the AFC Championship. Not to mention, his impressive stats even earned him the title of “Male Athlete of the Year” by the Associated Press in 2007.
Since then, he’s continued topping the charts both on the field and on Live TV, proving yet again that age is irrelevant. Will he lead the Patriots to yet another win this Sunday? Only time will tell.
