  • 5 Things to Watch Detroit Lions vs. New York Jets on Monday night

"There came a point in the third quarter where we didn't have control in all three phases", Patricia said, referring to the Jets' 31-point rampage that blew the game open. Things are not supposed to go this well for the Jets. The Detroit D picked off Sam Darnold's first pass as a professional and returned it for a touchdown, but then couldn't figure out the rookie quarterback the rest of the way.

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. But Lee didn't bite-"as a defense we said, don't bite the cheese"-hung back and leaped to snag the pass high in the air".

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

The Jets even got defensive and special teams touchdowns, something that happens about as often as a Bowles belly laugh. Since the start of training camp in late July, Shepherd has worked with the first-team Jets defence. Darron Lee returned an interception for a touchdown, and Andre Roberts scored on a 78-yard punt return 67 seconds later.

He trusted the Jets' running game and pass protection to set him up well.

Darnold, the third pick of the April draft named by head coach Todd Bowles on Labor Day as the Jets' opening-night starter, knows he's got a lot on his shoulders, but he's handling it the maturity that teammates, fans and reports have noticed since he arrived.

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

Darnold, the rookie out of USC whom NY selected third overall in the National Football League draft, led a three-play, 49-yard drive capped by a 41-yard touchdown to Robby Anderson as the Jets led 17-10 at halftime.

But the Jets answered in resounding fashion. Enunwa took a short pass and fought his way into the end zone for the 24-17 lead. Two other quarterbacks in history have started off their careers with pick sixes, one of them being Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre. It was the first of two interceptions by Lee.

Short bursts: It took 20 seconds at the start of the game to make it look like there would be one of those dream scenarios for Patricia's first game.

Darnold was 11-of-15 for 122 yards and generally stuck to shorter stuff outside of the big throw to Anderson. If a textbook example ever is needed for phrases such as "ill-advised throw" and "rookie mistake", Darnold provided it, handing the Detroit Lions a gift of a touchdown with a bad-decision, bad-pass interception.
