Ahead of Sunday’s NFC Championship game between the Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers, chants for quarterback Jared Goff began breaking out all over the state of Michigan.
Clips have gone viral on social media from sporting events across the state with chants of ‘Jared Goff’ breaking out at Detroit Pistons, Red Wings games, Michigan, Western Michigan and Griffins hockey games.
Chants of Goff’s name even broke out at a high school cheerleading competition.
Goff went on to say it’s turning into a local sensation “a little bit different,” when asked about it on Friday.
“Yes, it was sent to me by some people last night. And yeah, pretty cool, pretty cool to be a part of a city that cares so much,’ Goff said.

Goff and the Lions will face the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship on Sunday
The former Los Angeles Rams QB said his playoff runs there carried little of the support he’s experiencing now.
“And of course, the circumstances of it all feed into that,” Goff said.
“But yeah, these fans are amazing. I expect to see a lot of them this weekend too, it will be fun.’
Goff is currently in his third season with the Lions since being acquired via trade from the Rams and has been at the center of the Lions rebuild over the past few seasons.
During his first season in Detroit, the Lions finished with a 3-10-1 record, a far cry from their 12-5 finish this season.
Goff’s numbers also improved in each of his three years in Detroit, and he finished the regular season with 407-605, 4,575 yards, 30 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
