Throws walkoff touchdown
Goff completed 25 of 41 passes for 296 yards with three touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 29-27 win over Minnesota.
Despite playing without D'Andre Swift (shoulder), Goff put together his best game of the season and played nearly half of it with a two-score lead. While a lack of success on third downs eventually allowed the Vikings to claim the lead with under two minutes remaining, Goff ultimately led an improbable touchdown drive that ended with a touchdown strike to Amon-Ra St. Brown as time expired. However, this marked Detroit's first win of the season and Goff still ranks near the bottom of the league with 6.5 yards per pass attempt. Additionally, he still has one or zero pass touchdowns in over half of his games this season while offering minimal rushing upside. Despite the short-term success, Goff will remain an inadvisable fantasy option in Week 14 against Denver.
