Jared Goff Syndication: Detroit Free Press

The Detroit Lions are just one win away from making the Super Bowl. And if they can get a win over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game this weekend, it would put quarterback Jared Goff in some elite company.

As Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk points out, if Jared Goff can lead his team to victory over the Niners this weekend, he would become just the fifth quarterback in history to lead two different teams to the Super Bowl.

Goff first led the Los Angeles Rams to the Super Bowl at the end of the 2018 season where they ultimately fell to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII. Now, after the Rams sent him to Detroit in a trade that sent Matthew Stafford to Los Angeles, Goff is on the verge of leading the Rams to the Super Bowl.

If he does lead the Lions to victory this weekend, he will join Craig Morton, Kurt Warner, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady on the exclusive list.

It’s pretty insane news for Goff to be able to put himself in such elite company, and the NFL world had a lot to say about it.


We’ll have to see if Goff can do it.
