Detroit Lions: If Jared Goff had a week to move up, it would be this one
The Detroit Lions had their worst performance when they lost to the Bengals last week. This week they’re taking on Matthew Stafford and the Rams.
That matchup has been circled on fans’ calendars since Stafford arrived in Los Angeles. Still looking for their first win, Detroit must beat an old friend to get over the hump.
Here’s our preview of the week seven matchup between the Detroit Lions and the Los Angeles Rams.
According to WynnBET, the Lions will come into play as +14.5 point underdogs, and for good reason. The Rams were one of the top teams in the NFL, with only one flaw on their record against the undefeated Arizona Cardinals.
Stafford is fourth overall for passing yards this season with 1,838 yards and third overall for touchdown passes with 16.
On the flip side, the Lions offense has been abysmal this season and on the ground, and Goff has only thrown seven touchdowns this season. The offense must start quickly to compete with the Rams’ powerful offensive unit.
The Rams defensive unit can reach the quarterback quickly. Led by Aaron Donald, the Rams Defense is third in the Liga Ragnow for the season with a toe injury at 18.
