New York Jets Andre Roberts' tightrope touchdown against Detroit Lions

The Jets intercepted Stafford four times and intercepted backup Matt Cassel once, overcoming a pick-six by rookie quarterback Sam Darnold on his first National Football League pass. The blocking the Jets got out of the group played a big role in the success of the running game, and when called upon, they did their part in the passing game.

Isaiah Crowell highlighted the ground attack with a 62-yard touchdown run and Bilal Powell looked every bit as quick as he has over the past couple of seasons, carrying the ball 12 time for 60 yards. The 21-year-old rookie completed 16 of 21 passes for 198 yards. "JETS! JETS!" A crew clad in green and white filed into seats in four sections along the NY sideline and appeared to outnumber Detroit fans who stuck around for the bitter end. It produced 39 yards on 15 attempts.

Now, we've all been this frustrated with our teams, however, most have the self-control to avoid destroying a table in the process of our loathing. Quandre Diggs intercepted his ill-advised lob down the left sideline on the first play from scrimmage and returned it 37 yards for a touchdown 20 seconds into the game.

After the game, Lee admitted that the Jets knew what Lions QB Matthew Stafford was calling. Early in the third quarter, Darnold hit wide receiver Quincy Enunwa in the flat about 2 yards off the line of scrimmage on a pick play.

Darnold joined Tampa Bay's Jameis Winston (2015) and Brett Favre (1991) as quarterbacks who had their first pass intercepted and returned for a score. "We were winning and it got very quiet". Stafford went 27 of 46 for 286 yards, but it was his first four-interception game since 2013.

Coming out of Alabama, the Jets took Namath with the first overall pick in the 1965 AFL Draft. I'd be willing to use my one shot 1000 point bonus here because this is all but wrapped up.


"On that interception, I was pretty nervous", Darnold said.

Maybe it was just poor coverage by Detroit, but Roberts also had a 43-yard punt return in the first quarter in addition to his touchdown.

Since there have been many comparisons and hopes of the Lions being closer to the New England Patriots, let's throw out another comparison. "And those guys (on the Lions) - everybody was ready to play, including myself". They added a field goal for good measure.

Darnold and Jets look great: Sam Darnold's impressive debut was made possibly by the Jets' vastly improved defense. Luke Willson of LaSalle, Ont., makes his debut as starting tight end for the Lions.

"That was awesome to be able to see them doing their thing", Darnold said.
