Jared Goff led the Detroit Lions to a thrilling 31-26 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon, marking the Lions’ third straight win and an impressive 8-2 season record. This achievement gives the franchise a commanding lead in the NFC North and is a testament to Goff’s ability to overcome adversity.
Goff initially struggled, throwing three interceptions early in the game. However, he was able to turn things around in the fourth quarter with a successful 32-yard touchdown pass to Jameson Williams, followed by a 1-yard touchdown run by David Montgomery, and a well-executed two-point conversion. These plays helped the Lions come back from a 12-point deficit and secure their victory.
Justin Fields made his return with the Bears, going 16-of-23 for 169 yards with a touchdown and leading the team in rushing with 104 yards. However, it was not enough to overcome Goff’s strong performance or stop the surging Lions from winning their third straight game.
With this victory, Goff finished with 236 passing yards and two touchdowns, bringing his total for the season to 557 passing yards and eight touchdowns. The Lions now sit on pace to potentially claim their first divisional title in three decades as they face off against their next opponent – the Green Bay Packers – on Thanksgiving Day.
