Darnold shakes off pick-6, guides Jets past Lions

Intriguing Jets receivers can make Sam Darnold’s life easier

Intriguing Jets receivers can make Sam Darnold’s life easier

Jets knew Lions signals: The New York Jets defense apparently knew all of Matt Stafford's hand signals during their 48-17 blowout win over the Lions. Jets linebacker Darron Lee moved over for an easy interception and then galloped into the end zone.

When running back Crowell, another offseason free-agent pickup, took a routine handoff 62 yards to paydirt for his second touchdown of the night in the final minute of the third quarter, it looked like the Lions just gave up. There's always going to be one-year guys, two-year guys and 10-year guys.

The former USC star, drafted No. 3 overall, shook off the nerves and finished 16 of 21 for 198 yards and two touchdowns.

Jermaine Kearse is doubtful for the Jets on Monday so they'll rely upon last year's breakout wide receiver Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa as the two primary targets. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that's some really poor defense.

"He didn't flinch", Jets coach Todd Bowles said.

The 21-year-old Darnold was the youngest quarterback to start a season opener since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. The rookie quarterback thought he played "pretty well", but you saw more than that, and so did the players who suited up next to him, who cheered him on from the sidelines, who told him they weren't anxious after he threw a pick-six on the very first play of his first-ever National Football League game. "We had too many of them, I had too many of them". One of those interceptions was by Lee, who took it back 30 yards for a touchdown, the Jets' first defensive score in five seasons.

The Jets even said after the game they were able to figure out Detroit's signals.

Tesla shares fell as much as 10% to $252.25 as of 9.46am in NY , the steepest intra-day drop since June 2016. Tesla stock prices dipped more than 9.8%, near $253.75 during Friday (September 7) morning trading.

It actually began with a flourish for Detroit when Quandre Diggs intercepted rookie Sam Darnold on the first play from scrimmage and went 37 yards for a touchdown. By the top of the second quarter, he'd more than erased the deficit he'd created in the game's first 20 seconds. The team was still in the game after one half of football, but the adjustments at halftime, or lack thereof, came to light in the third quarter.

Roberts' 78-yard return gave NY a three-touchdown advantage.

"He's always smooth under pressure, he doesn't get rattled, so we weren't anxious whatsoever", Lee said. The Jets would go on to defeat Houston 24-7, and "The Sanchize" was officially born. They added a field goal for good measure. "Definitely something of a bright point for the team, for sure", Lee said, "but as a defense, it doesn't change what we have to do".

Darnold and the NY offense responded with an efficient drive of their own.

The Lions ended up with 39 yards on 15 carries.

"They're gonna have to play around Darnold".

Do I expect the Lions to beat the 49ers, 42-0, on Sunday?
