Matt Patricia Makes Lions Debut Monday Night Against Jets

Todd Bowles has to make his stand now to keep coaching Jets

The New York Jets claimed they knew Matthew Stafford's signals after they intercepted him four times on Monday night.

"We were calling out their plays as (Stafford was) getting up to the line", Lee said, via the New York Post. "I have to do a better job". Darnold completed 16 of his 21 passes for 198 yards and two touchdowns, looking like a savvy veteran and not a 21-year-old making his National Football League debut. Kerryon Johnson could end up with the most carries, but we all know LeGarrette Blount will be in on any short yardage situations, including if and when the Lions march into the red zone.

Darnold was 11 of 15 for 122 yards after two quarters.

The last two quarterbacks, before Darnold, to have their first career passes intercepted and returned for a touchdown?

In 2017 we saw 227 targets from Matt Stafford go to just Golden Tate and Marvin Jones Jr. and we should expect more of the same this year. Andre Roberts, who had already delivered one big return in the first quarter, tip-toed the sideline for a 78-yard punt return to the house.

The Jets rubbed salt in the wounds after the game by mocking the Lions, saying they easily figured out Detroit's signals and knew what plays were coming for much of the evening. "I need to continue to prove it to myself, prove it to my teammates and prove it to the coaches that I can play this game at a high level", Darnold told ESPN. Quincy Enunwa led the way with 6 receptions for 63 yards and Robby Anderson hauled in a 41-yard touchdown pass. Terrell Pryor had his first three catches as a Jet, picking up 39 yards.

The Jets' other starting rookie is from Ajax, Ont. - defensive lineman Nathan Shepherd, from a small NCAA Division II university in Kansas, Fort Hays State who burst onto the NFL's pre-draft radar last January with dominating performances at Senior Bowl practices. Darnold converted a third down with his legs to take the Jets into field goal range.

"Not going to walk through all of the (interceptions)", Stafford said Monday.

Even worse, consider that the late game featured a major market team from Los Angeles, Jon Gruden's return to coaching, and the fact that the game was competitive; with both teams tied at 13-13 with one minute remaining in the third quarter.

Rocking a black Lions hoody, which he had up over his head like always, Em walked out to midfield as an honorary captain with some of the Lions players.

"I've been watching that formation since like July", Lee said.

Darnold and Jets look great: Sam Darnold's impressive debut was made possibly by the Jets' vastly improved defense.

"The offense paints a picture for you each and every week to tell you what they're gonna do", Adams said, "as long as you study your opponent".

Detroit is at San Francisco next weekend.
