Christen Harper had all the feels Sunday when boyfriend Jared Goff and the Lions got their first win of the season.
While on the set of her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit rookie shoot, Harper — who has been linked to the 27-year-old quarterback since 2019 — got word that the Lions had defeated the Vikings and could hardly contain her excitement.
“This is their first win,” Harper said in a video shared Sunday on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit’s Instagram account. “This is crazy.”
As the clip continues, Harper is seen modeling a yellow bikini as she watches Goff throw the winning touchdown pass to Lions receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown to put Detroit ahead of Minnesota, 29-27.
“Oh my God, this is going to make me cry,” Harper said. “That is the best.”
Goff, the No 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, spent the first five years of his NFL career with the Rams before he was traded to the Lions in January. Los Angeles acquired veteran quarterback Matthew Stafford in return.
Entering Sunday, the Lions had a record of 0-10-1. Following the win, head coach Dan Campbell dedicated the victory to the Oxford community in the wake of last week’s deadly school shooting.
“You hope to be a light for those people and a positive thing that they can have fun watching today. I hope they were all watching today and were able to enjoy that win and we can take their minds off it for, whatever it may be, three hours,” Goff also said post-game.
The Lions, now 1-10-1, will face the Broncos (6-6) next weekend.
