What are we gonna see Monday night?

Anyone think we can find a way to win? I just can't see our o-line and running game supporting Sam enough to score enough points to beat Stafford and Tate & co.

But maybe we DO get things going on the ground, and keep Stafford off the field?

Expecting Sam to have a pick or fumble. He's a rook.

We are going to get a damn good feel for how nice of a handoff Sam Darnold has. I personally am curious to see which side he handoffs better to, left or right. That will be my big suspense for the night.

I think we're going to see a close game that highlights Sam's ability to improvise. Whether Beachum is there or not, he will not have valuable reps with his line mates. O line will be s problem. 

Our secondary will hold against the outside and it will be a low scoring, bend dont break affair. LBs will do better than expected, Williamson being key. Any QB pressure will be with blitzes, though

sloppy game. with not a lot of practice time these teams will have a lot of penalties and also because its primetime tv the nerves will be high. def a winnable game but i expect a lot of mistakes (penalties, turnovers, drops, special teams blunders, etc.)

Detroit is bad, but they beat the Saints, Jaguars, Eagles and swept the Vikings last year. If Stafford gets going, they can beat anyone. If you start sacking Stafford, you can beat them. The Jets aren’t sacking anything, so it’s safe to expect Stafford to put up some points. Defensively, the Lions have Ansah and Darius Slay, and nothing else, so we should see some decent play from Sam Darnold. Ultimately, I think the Lions put up 30 points and it’s too much for Darnold to compete with. 34-21 Lions.

2 factors to consider :

1-can they weather the 1st quarter fury and keep the game within 1 score, we might have a chance.

2-Turnovers....wouldn't it be nice for the defense to actually get an INT? 

It'll be interesting to see if Stafford throws Johnson's way or will he focus on clairborne?

The Jets have a chance because of the Lions' lack of "moxie," their mediocre defense, and their annual struggles to run the ball.

The biggest problem playing Detroit is, surprise surprise, the Jets lack of a pass rush.  Jones, Tate, and Golladay will shred the Jets if Stafford has 5 seconds in the pocket every play.

First game is rarely an indicator of the season so either the Jets win and their is hyperbole or lose with the excuse it's just the first game. Lose-lose outcome...

Gun to my head I’d predict an L. The teams look comparable on paper, but with rookie QB making his first start, on the road, the odds don’t favor us. That being said, one of my good friends is Detroit fan and he insists that the Jets will win, so who knows.

Although I hate Bowles and his inept appearing defense, our preseason D's performance wasn't all that horrible by any stretch.  Blah blah, I know....preseason doesn't carry over into the regular season blah blah.  None the less if we can establish a half-ass run game I think we win...provided ST doesn't screw us over of course.

fair assessment... I think the lions lose 34 -31 with the jets getting way ahead of themselves thinking they are now great....
