In his career, Stafford has made one Pro Bowl. He has 45,109 passing yards, 282 touchdowns and 144 interceptions on 62.6 percent completion.
Goff has passed for 18,171 yards, 107 touchdowns and 55 interceptions on 67 percent completion in his career. He helped lead the Rams to the Super Bowl following the 2018 season. He is a two-time Pro Bowler.
