On his next pass effort, Goff never ever saw Expenses edge rush Gregory Rousseau coming as the novice terribly beat fellow first-round choice Penei Sewell (transformed from delegated right deal with) — leading to a sack and a Lions three-and-out. 

Things did improve for Goff on the next series, as he finished 7 of 8 passes for 56 lawns on the drive — the emphasize a 20-yard pass to Williams. Goff likewise had a 13-yard conclusion to Amon-Ra St. Brown nullified by an offending holding charge.
