Jets' Sam Darnold throws pick-6 on first career play

Jets' Sam Darnold throws pick-6 on first career play

The New York Jets had gone five years - or 73 games! - without recording a defensive touchdown.

Darnold, who amassed too many turnovers while doing most everything else well while at USC, was quickly being lumped with fellow former Trojan Mark Sanchez and other reminders of the Jets' long-faiing past of highly drafted, highly disappointing QBs not named Joe Namath.

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. Look for Eminem to be dropping a new video for his Kamikaze song "Lucky You" with Joyner Lucas this Wednesday afternoon at 1pm ET as well.

"We were calling out their plays as (Stafford was) getting up to the line", Lee said, via the New York Post. On third-and-2 from the Lions' 41, offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates finally gave Darnold a shot to throw the deep ball and it worked.

Many years earlier, Patricia began his path to leading a team in the league by matching wits with buddies while playing electric football. "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.

The New York Jets' defense jumped all over Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions on Monday night. Patricia is the big one, and while he's new at this head coaching thing, he's not new at scheming up ways to shut down the Jets thanks to his time in New England. Stafford went 27 of 46 for 286 yards, but it was his first four-interception game since 2013.

An anemic first quarter of offense set the tone.

Monday's rout brought little reason for optimism.

I think there are some things that we're going to clean up and we're going to feel better about probably four weeks from now. Lightning forced a halt again midway through the third quarter, and the second stoppage lasted just over two hours.

After edging into a 17-10 half-time lead, the Jets cut loose in the third quarter, piling on 31 points to surge into a 48-17 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Lee said the Jets had a read on Detroit's signals. He's 11-of-15 for 122 yards with a touchdown and interception at the half.

"I'm going to be most disappointed in myself".

"I'm starting him - my confidence level has got to be pretty high", Bowles said. "I've got to do a better job, and that's always where I'm going to take it".

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.

Detroit did a lot to try to shore up the running game this offseason, drafting Kerryon Johnson and adding LeGarrette Blount.

They scored 31 straight in the third quarter to pull away, sending Detroit's fans for the exits and setting off a jolly green party in the Motor City. At least the empty seats couldn't boo.
