Ahead of Sunday’s NFC championship game between the Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers, chants for quarterback Jared Goff are being heard across the state of Michigan.

Clips have gone viral on social media from sporting events across the state, with chants of “Jared Goff” breaking out at Detroit Pistons, Red Wings games, Michigan, Western Michigan and Griffins hockey games.

Chants of Goff’s name even broke out during a high school cheerleading competition.

Goff called turning into a local sensation “a little different” when asked about it Friday.

“Yes, it was sent to me by some people last night. And yeah, pretty cool, pretty nice to be part of a city that cares so much,” Goff said.

Goff was the Lions quarterback for the past three seasons

The former Los Angeles Rams QB said his playoff runs there didn’t generate much of the support he’s experiencing now.

“And obviously circumstances all play a role in that,” Goff said.

‘But yes, these fans are incredible. I expect to see a lot of it this weekend, it will be fun.’

Goff is currently in his third season with the Lions since being acquired via trade from the Rams and has been central to the Lions’ rebuild in recent seasons.

During his first season in Detroit, the Lions finished with a 3-10-1 record, a far cry from their 12-5 finish this season.

Goff’s numbers have also improved in each of his three years in Detroit, finishing the regular season with 407-605, 4,575 yards, 30 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
