If you think that Jared Goff is motivated to beat the LA Rams on Sunday, then you should look at the Detroit Lions defense. Because they’ve been doing the heavy lifting in the second half, holding the Rams to zero points in the third quarter and helping the Lions take a 19-17 lead headed into the final period.

Matthew Stafford is 22-of-33 for 273 yard with two touchdowns against his former team.

Jared Goff is 13-of-24 for 215 yards with one touchdown against his former team.

The Lions are motivated to win their first game of the season, if they can just manage to hold off the Rams for 15 more minutes. Not only will it be the first win for Dan Campbell and the first win for Goff without Sean McVay as his head coach, it will be a feather in the cap for a franchise to beat one of the kings of the NFC through the first six weeks of the year.

Talk about the fourth quarter—RIGHT HERE!
