Quarterback Jared Goff is in complete command of the Detroit Lions offense.
He has led the squad to two victories through three games, tallying 819 passing yards and five touchdowns.
But aside from executing the plays, he recently showed off his fortune teller skills.
In a video courtesy of NFL Films, Goff said during a Lions’ huddle, “I don’t know if you all want to know, but this is the one.”
The Pro Bowl play-caller initially faked a handoff to running back Jahmyr Gibbs.
It was part of the play-action sequence that left tight end Sam LaPorta wide-open downfield.
As he predicted, Goff found him for a touchdown.

The Lions defeated the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3, 20-6.
While that was the only touchdown pass Goff had in the game, he also registered a rushing touchdown.
The victory over the Falcons allowed the Lions to bounce back from their Week 2 overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
It also sustains their confidence after defeating the Kansas City Chiefs on opening night.
Goff and the Lions hope to sustain the momentum as they head into Week 4 to face their division rivals, the Green Bay Packers.
With the Packers dominating the NFC North for so long, the Lions will try to make a statement about the future.
