Jared Goff made history on Sunday, becoming just the third quarterback in NFL history to lead multiple teams to at least 14 wins. With the Lions' victory over the Buccaneers, Goff's season total reached 14 wins, adding to his previous achievement of leading the Rams to 15 wins in 2018. Before Goff, only Tom Brady and Peyton Manning had accomplished this feat.
Brady, who won a record-breaking seven Super Bowls, achieved this milestone 10 times during his tenure with the Patriots. After leaving New England, he led the Buccaneers to 15 wins in his first season with the team and 14 wins in his second season.
Manning, a future Hall of Famer, won at least 14 games in a season five times with the Colts and reached the mark once with the Broncos. In his second season with Denver, he led the team to 15 wins.
Goff's next challenge is to lead the Lions to a victory over the 49ers in the NFC Championship game, which would make him just the fifth starting quarterback in NFL history to lead multiple teams to a Super Bowl. The only other quarterbacks to achieve this feat are Brady, Manning, Kurt Warner, and Craig Morton.
If Detroit wins, Goff would not only lead the Lions to their first-ever Super Bowl appearance but also become the first quarterback in franchise history to win three postseason games in a single season. Goff has already won two playoff games, tying the franchise record.
