Lions @ Jets Sunday: Detroit improves to 7-7

The New York Jets, a team that has fading NFL playoff aspirations, hosted the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The Lions, who were once 1-6 on the season, won the game in a contest that had a final score that was within a field goal. The final score was Detroit 20, New York 17.

With the loss, the Jets are now 7-7 on the season. It was the third straight result that went against them and they are now in last place in their division, the difficult AFC East. The Jets are on the outside looking in for the Wild Card picture and they have a reasonably difficult schedule remaining, including road games at Seattle and Miami.

Meanwhile, the Lions improved to 7-7 with the 3-point victory. They sit 2nd in the NFC North but have no chance of catching the first-place Minnesota Vikings, a team that has already clinched the division. Detroit does have some previously unthinkable Wild Card hopes. They will be targeting the Washington Commanders, who are 7-6-1 following their loss on Sunday night to the New York Giants.

Jared Goff passes for 252 yards

The winning quarterback in the game was Jared Goff of Detroit. He had 252 passing yards in the game and his ratio of TDs to INTs was 1 to 0. Goff, who has played very well in recent weeks, had a passer rating of 88.9.

The losing quarterback in the game was Zach Wilson of New York. Wilson has had an up-and-down season for playing time, partly because of injury and partly because it's not really clear who New York's best QB is. He had 317 passing yards in the Week 15 game and his ratio of TDs to INTs was 2 to 1. In the end, Wilson had a passer rating of 89.8.
