The Detroit Lions are experiencing their most successful season in over a decade, boasting an 8-2 record and leading the NFC North while securing the second spot in the conference. In their latest triumph, they overcame a 26-14 deficit in the fourth quarter to defeat the Chicago Bears 31-26 in Week 11. Despite throwing three interceptions, quarterback Jared Goff played a crucial role in the comeback, finishing with 236 yards and two passing touchdowns.

Looking ahead to a Thanksgiving Thursday showdown with the Green Bay Packers in Week 12, Goff expressed satisfaction with the quick turnaround, hoping to maintain momentum and erase the memory of the Chicago game. The Lions’ remarkable season has already made history, as they will take the field on Thanksgiving in sole possession of first place for the first time in 30 years, marking a significant achievement for a team that hasn’t reached the playoffs since 2016 and hasn’t won a postseason game since 1991. Goff acknowledges that despite the success, he holds himself to high standards and aims to deliver a better performance against the Packers, aiming for a fourth consecutive victory.
