Jared Goff led the Detroit Lions to a thrilling 31-26 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon, securing their third straight win and an impressive 8-2 season record. Despite a rocky start that saw him throw three interceptions early in the game, Goff was able to lead the team out of a 12-point deficit in the final quarter with a series of clutch plays.
First, he hit Jameson Williams with a successful 32-yard touchdown pass that cut the Bears’ lead to five points. Then, David Montgomery ran for a 1-yard touchdown and converted it into two points with an expertly executed two-point conversion. With just one point separating them, it was anyone’s game. But then, in true Lions fashion, they forced a safety on the final play of the game to secure their victory and claim their first divisional title since 1990.
The Bears were led by Justin Fields, who made his return after missing several games due to injury. He went 16-of-23 for 169 yards with one touchdown and led the team in rushing with 104 yards. However, it was not enough to stop the red hot Lions from claiming another victory.
Goff finished strong with 236 passing yards and two touchdowns on Sunday afternoon, leaving many wondering if this is finally the year that the Lions make it all the way to Super Bowl glory. With their next game against Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving Day, they are just one win away from clinching their first division title in nearly three decades.
