The Lions seemed to run more and hit more. Turnovers. Too many of them.

Darnold, the youngest quarterback starter since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970, overcame a pick-6 (an interception returned for a touchdown) on his first pass attempt when he elected to roll to his right and throw across the field on his first snap.

The burly man with a bushy beard and a pencil over his right ear moves around a lot, spending time with various position groups during drills to share his expertise on both sides of the ball.

Benoit says the Lions should be a different animal in the regular season, employing all the defensive tactics in Patricia's arsenal. The Jets then took control. "But you try to do a good job of gauging your players and how they're handling the week".

Lee said the Jets had a read on Detroit's signals. Do we need to cut back? "You listen to the coaches, I've watched some of the interviews that he's done...he looks like he is the real deal".

Before the 2018-2019 National Football League season kicked off for the Detroit Lions Monday night at home against the New York Jets, the Lions chose to have a hometown legend serve as an honorary captain and do their coin toss.

But the most impressive thing the 21-year-old did with the world watching? The Jets matched their road victory total from last season (with one) and set a franchise record for points in a road game. "We knew everything. That's just preparation as a defense". Darnold dropping downfield dimes stunned rookie coach Matt Patricia and the Lions' defense.

But the wheels began falling off for the Lions soon afterwards. His cool and calm ways were respected and they appreciated that he cared about them off the field. They only led 17-10 at halftime. The Lions had minus-2 yards total offense in the first quarter. "He came in, he laid down the law".

"He didn't flinch", Jets coach Todd Bowles said. I'll be surprised if he doesn't rise to the occasion of his first National Football League start. "They're always very tough-minded, and the execution and fundamentals are outstanding". His performance alone was cause for excitement Monday, but on this night, NY seemed to have a pretty solid cast around him as well.
