Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff is feeling good about his play this season, believing that he is playing the best football of his career, and it’s hard to argue with him give his stats and the Lions improved play overall in 2022.
“I feel like I am playing the best football of my career right now,” Goff said, according to ESPN’s Eric Woodyard. “I’ve played a lot of good football in my career, but I feel as comfortable as I’ve ever felt,” Goff said. “I’m getting older, I’m understanding the game more and it’s just everything coming together a little bit.”
Goff clarified that he meant his entire career, which included his 2018 season with the Los Angeles Rams, when he led the team to Super Bowl LIII.
“It’s always been the goal since I’ve got here, knowing the history of this place is to win and to enjoy winning in this city and to give the fans what they deserve here that have been starved of it for so long,” Goff said. “We’re still not there. We’re 5-7, but a lot of positivity going on right now and things moving in the right direction. We’re playing really good football, regardless of who we’re playing or what the score has been, it’s been really good football the last five weeks and can we continue that for another five weeks would be the goal and to finish the season strong.”
The Lions are certainly much better this season than they have been in the last several, as they are in position to make a push for the playoffs for the first time since 2016 under former coach Jim Caldwell, with just five regular-season games remaining in the regular season.
