Almost nothing went right for the Detroit Lions in Week 6. The offense managed a paltry 228 yards of total offense in a blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, and quarterback Jared Goff left much to be desired with his performance.

Head coach Dan Campbell wasn't happy with his team's play, especially from his signal-caller.

Campbell said that Goff "needs to step up more than he has" following Sunday's clunker. The two-time Pro Bowler has failed to impress to begin his tenure in Detroit, and QB play is one reason the Lions are the lone remaining winless team in the league.

Goff had several miscues against the Bengals that are hard to forgive in Week 6. He managed to throw for just 202 yards, 0 touchdowns and 1 interception, but better execution could've helped give Detroit a chance.

Goff is now coming off of two straight outings with less than 210 passing yards, and he's also thrown an interception in each contest. The veteran needs to clean up his play if the Lions are going to get into the win column in 2021.

He'll look to get back on track in a revenge game against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 7.
