It was a multi-month wait, but Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit model girlfriend Christen Harper finally gets to celebrate a victory Monday in Detroit thanks to a 30-12 blowout of the Arizona Cardinals.
Harper, who celebrated the Lions’ first win of the season two weeks ago while in a bikini on a beach shooting photos for SI, was inside Ford Field Sunday to feel the energy as her boyfriend had his best game of the season. Goff was 21 of 26 for 216 yards and three touchdowns as the Lions played their best game of the year.
“Victory Monday,” Harper, wearing her Lions throwback sweatshirt, wrote while celebrating the ‘W’ from her walk-in closet. Here’s the crazy part: she has a clear opportunity to celebrate two more victory Mondays as the Lions go on the road to Atlanta and the Seattle, where the Seahawks could be out of the playoffs and just playing out the season.
Things haven’t always been smooth for Harper in Detroit.
Back in October, the Lions were 0-6 and Harper was trying to say all the right things about being in Detroit as the head coach was publicly challenging her boyfriend to live up to his $26.5 million contract.
“I’ve honestly been loving the change of pace,” in Detroit, she told fans.
“Of course missing my friends and family and I’m sure I’ll start missing the sunshine, but honestly and truly loving it here,” she added.
Ahh, but winning solves everything and even though the Lions are headed for a top 10 draft pick, it’s not all doom and gloom today in Detroit. It’s a sunny day in the Motor City and Christen woke up in suburban Detroit with a victory.
