In a stunning turn of events, quarterback Jared Goff led the Detroit Lions to a 31-23 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the divisional round, securing the Lions’ spot in the NFC championship for the first time in 32 years and only the second time in franchise history. Goff, who was traded by the Los Angeles Rams three years ago in exchange for Matthew Stafford, has become a fan favorite in Detroit and showcased his worth by throwing his second touchdown pass with 6:22 left in the game.

Jared Goff and Jahmyr Gibbs inspire win for the Detroit Lions

Goff’s performance, particularly in the fourth quarter, earned praise from head coach Dan Campbell, who affirmed last week that Goff was indeed good enough for the Detroit Lions. The Lions’ victory marked their first time winning two playoff games in a season since 1957. Goff finished the game 30 of 43 for 287 yards and directed a highly efficient second-half offense, leading the Lions to long touchdown drives on three consecutive possessions.

Running back Jahmyr Gibbs played a crucial role, scoring a tie-breaking 31-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter, while Goff extended the lead with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Amon-Ra St. Brown. Detroit Lions now face the challenge of traveling to San Francisco to take on the NFC’s top seed for a chance to advance to the Super Bowl—a stage the franchise has never reached.
