The Lions won their first game of the season and now their quarterback has a little something extra to show for it.

Jared Goff has been named the NFC offensive player of the week for his performance in the win over the Vikings.

Goff finished the game 25-of-41 passing for 296 yards with three touchdowns. He did have an interception and lost a fumble late in the contest.

But he got the job done when Detroit needed it most at the end of the fourth quarter, piloting a 14-play, 75-yard drive that ended with a walk-off 11-yard touchdown to receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown.

In his first season with the Lions, Goff has completed 67 percent of his passes for 2,576 yards with 13 touchdowns and seven picks.

The Lions will try to keep their momentum rolling with a matchup against the Broncos in Denver this week.

  1. Ha! He had one good quarter and a final drive (thanks Zim for dropping back the defense!). Even as an incredibly elated Lions fan, I have to think surely someone had a better game in the NFC last weak. Almost feels like a pity award.

  2. He didn’t even have as good a game as Cousins. This is definitely a pity pick.

  3. He didn’t even have as good a game as Cousins. This is definitely a pity pick.

    He was penalized for losing.

  4. And Dan Campbell gets the “No idea what I’m doing ” coach of the week award for going for it on 4th and 2 in the 4th qtr, with a lead, on your own 28 yd line……with less than 2 minutes in the game!

  5. A huge game winning drive for a team with virtually no talent at the WR position. Good for him!
