Can Jared Goff lead the Detroit Lions to their first conference championship game since 1957?
Is Jared on the verge of returning home to the Bay Area?
First things first: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Ford Field on NBC at 12 PM Pacific, 3 PM Eastern.
Gonna be some conflicted Cal fans next week. Being from LA, I already worked through mine. Go Lions!
That should have been a sack by Alualu! Instead it's incomplete pass and Bucs score TD on the next play.
Goff is coming back to San Francisco to play for a chance to play in his second Super Bowl.
A Bear leading an underdog in the NFC championship game!
Can never count any playoff team out with time left but Goff is going for the kill when given the chance.
A clarification and a correction. Clarification: Detroit played for the NFL Western Conference Championship in 1957 vs San Francisco at Kezar Stadium. The Lions and 49ers were tied for first place with 8-4 records. Detroit defeated San Francisco 31-27. The NFC, as such, didn't exist until 1970, after the merger with the AFL.
The Lions played the Cleveland Browns (NFL Eastern Conference champions) for the 1957 NFL Championship and routed the Browns, 59-14.
Correction: Detroit last played in the NFC Championship game in 1991 vs. Washington Red-potato-skins, which Washington won, 41-10.
So deeply happy for Jared and the Lions. Who doesn't like an underdog. I'm a loyal SOB, which is the only reason I'm still such an ardent Cal fan, and so my 49ers will be getting my support, but I will certainly be happy for Jared if they were to go to the big game. I fear Baltimore will steamroll whoever they face.
I’m sorry, why did TB go for 2.
Jared looks so happy behind good protection.
Everyone talks QB, RB, WR, etc, but no one ever talks ILB's or edge rushers. This is the reason that the Lions and Niners won the games. Who made the interceptions that figuratively ended the games. The Inside Linebackers.
Great job, Lions!
Bucs could have called a timeout and forced a punt there, I wonder why they didn't?
Jared's protection needs protection, apparently.
I love me some Goff!
Correction, 12 PM Pacific, 3 PM Eastern.
Lions with Goff should win. But don't dismiss Baker Mayfield and the Bucs.
