If the Detroit Lions get a place in the Victory Column this week, they will have to do it in a dramatic way. In addition to an impressive 5-1 record, the Los Angeles Rams also have a quarterback named Matthew Stafford. You may recall that Stafford played with a team called the Detroit Lions for 12 years and won a handful of games in that time.
But no one has faced more drama than current Lions quarterback Jared Goff. The young quarterback was swapped by the Rams without further ado and now has to return to his former home stadium and try to prove that he still has something left. Goff said earlier this week that once the game starts, the emotions won’t affect him, but that’s a lot easier said than done.
Can Goff and the Lions create a major road disruption, or will the Rams run all over Detroit as many predict?
We will provide live updates from the SoFi stadium here. So if you can’t see the game, keep updating it.
Before the game
Before the game began, the Rams showed two short video tributes to the Lions Michael Brockers and Jared Goff who have become the Rams. (We only caught one video of Goff).
