Los Angeles Rams QB JARED GOFF is the winner of COURTYARD UNSTOPPABLE PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR AWARD. The award was announced tonight at NFL HONORS – a two-hour primetime awards show that will air nationally tonight at 9 PM ET/PT on CBS.
The Courtyard Unstoppable Performance of the Year Award is given to the player who demonstrates the best performance in a game during the regular season. Each week during the regular season, Courtyard awards an "Unstoppable Performer" award to a deserving player, and NFL Media analysts selected Goff's performance in Week 4 at home against the Minnesota Vikings as the pinnacle of "Unstoppable Performance" this season. The Super Bowl quarterback shattered the Thursday Night Football record throwing for 465 yards and 5 touchdowns.
