Darnold off the mark as Jets maul Lions

Intriguing Jets receivers can make Sam Darnold’s life easier

"We were calling out their plays as he was getting up to the line", Jets linebacker Darron Lee said.

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. That might be a leg-up for Patricia on Monday, considering the Jets and Pats are division rivals. 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.

"I would have liked to have gotten it, but I'm happy for D. Lee", cornerback Morris Claiborne said. Five snaps under pressure is obviously a small sample size to work with, but the Lions' pass rush wasn't expected to be good this season (24th) so it is hard to know for sure how good Darnold can be in the National Football League until he at least faces the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4, a team ranked second in pass-rushing ability and first for pass coverage before the season started. 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 said they weren't stealing signals, attributing the success to thorough preparation and scouting.

Facing the Falcons, Nagle went 21-for-37 for a whopping 366 yards, two touchdowns, and finished with a 108.6 quarterback rating.

Stafford threw four interceptions - one shy of his career high - and left the game briefly in the third quarter after being hit from the front and back.

Since she is running unopposed in November, Pressley will become the Commonwealth's first black woman elected to Congress. She will head to Congress to represent the 7th District of MA , the Boston-area district once represented by John F.

While the numbers for the late game between the Raiders and the Rams seemed to have held steady with past year, that too could be a misleading fact.

Sanchez totaled 272 yards on 18-for-31 throwing with one touchdown, one interception, and an 84.3 quarterback rating. "I've got to do a better job, and that's always where I'm going to take it". "Hope I never have to say that again".

Lee picked off Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford twice, one of which was returned for a 36-yard touchdown that shifted the momentum of the game.

Surely, the Lions had righted the ship and would take control? It's unreasonable to ask him to do what he did against the Lions, but he needs to continue to make big plays and bring consistency to the defense. They added a field goal for good measure. Brett Favre, Johnny Unitas, and Jameis Winston threw pick-sixes on their first pass attempts too.

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