Jared Goff: He did not have his best game, but he never seemed rattled or unsure of himself, no matter what happened around him

In a game where the Lions needed a steady hand at the controls of the offense, he provided it. – Mike O'Hara

Franchise QB: Speaking of Goff, 28, is there any real question moving forward he's the franchise quarterback of this football team?

He answered a lot of detractors this season finishing with more than 4,400 passing yards, 29 touchdowns with just seven interceptions

The Lions could still stand to bring in a young, developmental quarterback as a backup but that doesn't need to happen until Day 2 or Day 3 of the NFL Draft.

Goff should be the guy at quarterback for the Detroit Lions moving forward. – Tim Twentyman TIM AND MIKE: Week 18 observations

Jamaal Williams: He did more than pad his stats in getting his first 1,000-yard rushing season and breaking Barry Sanders' record for rushing TDs in season.

Williams' two TDs gave him 17 for the season, one more than Barry had in the previous record. TIM AND MIKE: Week 18 observations

Williams' yards and TDs Sunday were keys to the Lions winning. He produced under pressure – like Barry often did as the best runner in history. – Mike O'Hara

Big expectations: It's a long offseason, and this Lions roster will look different next summer, but would anyone be surprised if the Lions entered next season favored to win the NFC North?
