Lions’ Jared Goff chosen to be fed to the Bears

The Detroit Lions are planning on starting Jared Goff. Previously out with an oblique injury, the quarterback made all the necessary throws that indicated that he would make the start on Thanksgiving Day, per Stacey Dales of NFL Network:

Goff looked to revitalize his career in Detroit, but that certainly has not been the case. The Lions are winless so far this year, with a record of 0-9-1. Additionally, the former Ram has thrown just eight touchdowns, while getting picked off six times.

There was even consideration around the league that backup quarterback Tim Boyle could remain the starter for the rest of the year, if he were to have a good performance in his start against the Cleveland Browns. He did not, however, throwing two interceptions in a tough loss, 13-10.

The former first overall pick has yet to return to his Pro-Bowl level days. Part of the issue could be put on the lack of wide receiver options the Lions have, but Goff will need to prove that he can lead the team with subpar weapons if he wants to remain a part of the team’s future.

Jared Goff will face an Andy Dalton led Chicago Bears squad, who are currently 3-7. Goff could either be trampled by the Bears, or he could lead his team to their first win of the season.
