  • Lions Film Review How Detroit tipped its hand on Darron Lee’s pick-6

It was nearly like the players knew where Stafford was throwing the ball.

"I know that just because I got named the starter doesn't mean that we won the game Monday night", Darnold said during the past week.

Asked how they knew Stafford's signals, Lee said, "Study".

The defense barely let the Lions breathe in Matt Patricia's head coaching debut.

The booing began early. The Lions had minus-2 yards total offense in the first quarter. Matthew Stafford threw two interceptions.

Darnold made a stellar debut after throwing a pick-6 on his first National Football League snap, and the New York Jets intercepted five passes and also scored on special teams in a 48-17 rout over the Detroit Lions on Monday night. "They obviously are the ones that played well tonight", Patricia said. This was a night for optimism for a franchise that far too often has had far too little of it.

Things could not have gone much worse for Sam Darnold, the prized rookie quarterback of the New York Jets, on his first National Football League play.

It was trouble. At least we can say this: No matter how Darnold's career goes from here, we'll always remember how it started.

There were boos from the crowd later in the quarter, though.

Similarly, it has also shared the increase in diesel prices and the percentage hike in 2004, 2009, 2014 and 2018 respectively. Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan also attributed the hike in fuel prices mainly to rupee depreciation.

Stafford was out of rhythm nearly the entire game, as he completed only 27 of 46 passes for 286 yards.

Jets fans, it's OK to think it. Sam Darnold's teammates were thinking it, too, as they left Ford Field on the good side of a lopsided 48-17 season opener against the Lions. That might be a leg-up for Patricia on Monday, considering the Jets and Pats are division rivals.

Watch Roberts evade the first group of tacklers, then tiptoe his way down the sideline to give NY a 21-point lead. He's 11-of-15 for 122 yards with a touchdown and interception at the half. Darron Lee returned an interception for a touchdown, and Andre Roberts scored on a 78-yard punt return 67 seconds later. They could not have been actual Jets players.

The referee for the game is Bill Vinovich, who is refereeing his ninth Jets game since 2004, including the 2006 playoff game at New England and the 2015 home win over Miami.

"I told those guys in there, 'I'll take this one, '" Stafford said. "It' s awesome and I'm really happy to be the starting quarterback but I also know that I've got to go out there and do my job".

"I'm starting him - my confidence level has got to be pretty high", Bowles said.

Darnold earned the right to start in Week 1 over journeyman team favorite Josh McCown because he showed good leadership qualities and a feel for defenses beyond his years. Kenny Golladay had seven catches for 114 yards.

Detroit did a lot to try to shore up the running game this offseason, drafting Kerryon Johnson and adding LeGarrette Blount. OG T.J. Lang left the game with a back injury. The Jets could've piled on even more in the final minutes but turned the ball over on downs after kneeling to take time off the clock. There weren't many Detroit fans left.
