Following the win, Lions head coach Dan Campbell had a message for Goff.
“That’s the way to throw it when we needed it, motherf—–! That is exactly what I said,” Campbell said according to NFL reporter Peter King.
While speaking to the media after the game, Campbell dedicated the victory to the victims in the Oxford High School shooting.

“I just wanted them to know exactly what we were going to represent today,” Campbell said of his message to the team prior to the game. “The shirts, the hats, the decals, the people that are affected. Some of our players know of someone that was affected. To me, my thought was, ‘Hey, man, if we can, for three hours, just ease their suffering a little bit, that’s worth it.’ So, that’s kinda how I thought of this and we did a great job, players responded and played well.”
The Lions (1-10-1) will travel to Denver to square off against the Broncos next.
