Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell told the media Tuesday that he is "leaning toward" starting Jared Goff in the Thanksgiving Day tilt against the Chicago Bears according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

“60 percent, leaning toward 50-50,” Campbell added on Goff's status.  Goff missed the team's Week 11 slugfest against the Cleveland Browns with an oblique injury but, after watching Tim Boyle try to play NFL football, even a diminished-and frankly terrible-Goff looks like the Lions quarterback least likely to embarrass the city of Detroit on national television.  Goff is still looking for his first win as a starting quarterback without Sean McVay as his head coach. In nine games this season, Goff’s completed 66.1 percent of his passes for 2,109 yards with eight touchdowns and six interceptions. The 2016 No. 1 overall pick has also fumbled seven times, losing four of them.
