Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff has been excellent for the team this year. He currently ranks fifth in the NFL in passer rating, fourth in QBR, and fourth in PFF grade. But on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, he had two of his worst moments as a Lion: an interception which he called “the worst ball I’ve ever thrown,” and a post-touchdown attempt at jumping in the crowd that failed miserably.

Goff, having just scored the first rushing touchdown of his Lions career to put the team up three scores late, couldn’t contain his excitement. However, he also couldn’t lift himself much off the ground.

As if that video isn’t funny enough, the entire moment was captured in a mic’d up moment from NFL Films’ “Inside the NFL” show. Check it out below in the top left box:

“My jump was horrible,” Goff is seen telling backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. “Watch me jump. Hey, I tried. I jumped, and then I had to jump again.”

Always nice to have a quarterback who is willing to poke a little fun at himself.
