NS Lion are still looking for their first win of 2021 and they will be counting on a fresh back four to provide it for at least their next two games. Facing an oblique injury that kept him training all week, Jared Goff will miss Sunday’s game against Brown and is also expected to lead the 12th Thanksgiving Day showdown with Bear. That is by NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, who said Sunday is the former Rams signal callers have faced an “uphill battle” to return to the NFC North match on Thursday, leaving backup Tim Boyle like the Lion’s emergency QB1.
Bought from Los Angeles this season in Matthew Stafford commercial, Goff was likely about to give up on the starting missions. Despite a good start under Dan Campbell, he increasingly struggled as the club’s No 1 in the Lions’ 0-8-1 draw. It is likely he will be forced to compete for his old job when he returns from injury.
Boyle, on the other hand, will have his first career NFL start Sunday with Cleveland. The 27-year-old former QB player spent the first three seasons of his career with Packers, serve as Aaron Rodgers‘backup in Green Bay. Signed to a one-year contract this season, Boyle landed on the injured bench in September but returned to the active squad this week.
