Jared Goff: King in the North

    Inside the Article:

    I am not ready to buy a Jared Goff jersey, but he has earned my respect. Jared Goff is having an impressive stretch as the quarterback for the Detroit Lions, leading the NFL in passer rating and touchdowns and not having thrown an interception since week nine against the Packers.

    Why it Matters: Goff's success has contributed to the Lions' strong performance in recent games and has solidified his role as the best quarterback in the NFC North this season. His comfort, confidence in the offense, and improved decision-making have played vital roles in his success.

    Jared Goff has been the best quarterback in the NFL in the past month, leading the league in passer rating and touchdowns and not throwing a single interception. He is also the top quarterback in the NFC North this season, ranking first in various statistical categories such as passer rating, total quarterback rating, touchdowns, interceptions, yards per attempt, and net yards per attempt. Goff attributes his success to his comfort, confidence in the offense, and strong relationship with his coordinator.

    "I think confident and comfortable is the best way to describe it," he said. "I don’t want to say (the game) feels slower, but where we’re at with our offense right now, I’m so comfortable and Ben and I are so much on the same page. Every time he calls a play, I know why he’s calling it, what the reason is, what defense we’re expecting. You’re just so much ahead of where we’ve been in the past, and it allows me to play pretty freely and pretty comfortable.”
