The Detroit Lions have certainly been making noise in the NFL this year. They currently lead the NFC North with a 6-2 record and look like they will win the division easily. Some people believe they may even be in contention for the top seed in the NFC.

Jared Goff Has Been Elite

There is no question that Goff has stepped up this year. However, this chart shows just how much Goff has done so. It reveals that Goff has the highest percentage of throws to open receivers this season.
