Detroit Lions keep NFL playoff hopes alive with 20-17 win over Jets

East Rutherford, NJ — Jared Goff and Brock Wright teamed up to save the season, just when it looked like a 54-yard field goal might do the Detroit Lions again.

Goff threw a 51-yard touchdown pass to Wright with 1:49 to play on Sunday as the Lions rallied from a fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the New York Jets, 20-17, at MetLife Stadium.

The Lions (7-7) have won three straight and six of their past seven games to move within one game of the last wild card of the NFC playoffs. The Lions have three games left against teams with a sub-. 500 record: at the Carolina Panthers next week, at home against the Chicago Bears in Week 17 and at the Green Bay Packers to close out the regular season.
