Jets players: Formations, hand signals gave plays away in blowout of Lions

  • Jets LB claims they called Lions plays pre-snap'We knew everything

After an terrible pick six, Detroit Lions fans couldn't help but jeer the rookie off the field. Or as giddy as Bowles gets. That might be a leg-up for Patricia on Monday, considering the Jets and Pats are division rivals.

Almost everything went right for the Jets. The Lions were solid favorites to beat a Jets team that had gone 5-11 in each of the last two seasons and was starting rookie quarterback Sam Darnold. He was poised, efficient and made enough throws to make believers out of even the biggest Jets skeptics.

Darnold added a third-quarter touchdown pass to wideout Quincy Enunwa in a 16-for-21, 198-yard passing performance. But Lee didn't bite-"as a defense we said, don't bite the cheese"-hung back and leaped to snag the pass high in the air".

Sam Darnold threw two touchdown passes in his National Football League debut, and the New York Jets scored 31 unanswered points in the third quarter to ruin Matt Patricia's head-coaching debut and thump the host Detroit Lions 48-17 on Monday night.

But what happened from there was distinctly non-Jets-like.

His game highlight reel included one superb pinpoint pass to Robby Anderson for a 41-yard touchdown in the second quarter which helped put the Jets 17-7 ahead. Since the start of training camp in late July, Shepherd has worked with the first-team Jets defence.

Watch Andre Roberts walk the tightrope down the sideline to score on a 78-yard punt return touchdown.

In addition to their in-game dominance, the Jets clearly won the battle of pre-game preparation as well. And Darnold grew the Jets' lead.

In addition, the chip industry is a source of trade surplus for the United States , including with China, Intel argued. Then he added: "I hate to say this, but behind that there is another $267bn ready to go on short notice if I want".

Down 17-10 at halftime, Detroit responded by going 75 yards in only four plays, tying the game on Stafford's 24-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate.

But the Jets answered in resounding fashion.

The 21-year-old Darnold was the youngest quarterback to start a season opener since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger.

Here's a look at Favre's pick-six in a Falcons vs. It was the first of two interceptions by Lee. Jameis Winston had his first pass intercepted and returned for a touchdown in 2015.

After the Jets kicked a field goal, running back Isaiah Crowell, who had 10 carries for 102 yards in his Jets debut, broke off a 62-yard touchdown run that gave NY a 31-point lead.

Time lapse: The Jets scored 31 points in 12:20. On his first play from scrimmage, he threw an interception that Quandre Diggs returned 37 yards for a touchdown.

Since his first pass, which was taken back for Lions pick-six, Darnold has looked like a whole new player. Darnold faked a handoff left to Bilal Powell and rolled right. But on "Monday Night Football", his NFL career started in the worst way possible.

The Lions ended up with 39 yards on 15 carries. He made few mistakes during the preseason, but the Jets didn't exactly open up the playbook for him. He took advantage of it, moving the Jets to the end zone in five plays. It was tied at 7 after one, and the Lions had minus-2 yards of offense.
