Detroit Lions dismantled by New York Jets, 48-17, in season opener

The Jets' other starting rookie is from Ajax, Ont. - defensive lineman Nathan Shepherd, from a small NCAA Division II university in Kansas, Fort Hays State who burst onto the NFL's pre-draft radar last January with dominating performances at Senior Bowl practices.

As for running back, Isaiah Crowell's bruising running style is a compliment to Bilal Powell's elusive rushing and pass-catching abilities. Patricia, who is from Sherrill, New York, would set up miniature players on a vibrating, metal field to face off with friends in games that would continue for weeks. That included a 41-yard touchdown pass to Robby Anderson in the second quarter. A few minutes later, Andre Roberts returned a punt 78 yards for a touchdown, the first punt return for a score since 2012.

The New York Jets intercepted five passes in a game for the first time in 19 years, and they believe it's because they knew what was coming.

Stafford was 27 of 46 for 286 yards and a TD pass to Golden Tate early in the third quarter to tie it at 17.

As much as Darnold struggled with turnovers at USC, he had the moxie to overcome them and spark comebacks in a lot of games. But his first throw looked ill-advised from the moment it left his hand, floating toward the left sideline, where Diggs picked it off. Darnold was still holding the ball while talking briefly with Stafford on the field. The Jets were taking it to them with Darnold and then the defense, running game and special teams responded with big plays, too.

Darnold shook off the poor start, though, and showed the poise that the Jets have fallen in love with since drafting him.

The Jets ended up winning that game in overtime.

While Darnold and the offense were finding their groove, the Jets defense was dominating. He completed 11 of 14 passes for 122 yards and a touchdown over the remainder of the first half. Everything the Jets have done since the end of last season has indicated that ownership and the front office understands the future is what's important.

On the first play of the game, .

Claiborne, Jamal Adams and Trumaine Johnson also made interceptions. It was the highest-scoring third quarter in team history and trailed only the 34-point second quarter the Brett Favre-led team scored in 2008 against Arizona.
