Sam Darnold sure looks like the real deal

Sam Darnold sure looks like the real deal

So this, from Jets linebacker Darron Lee after his team's 48-17 blowout of the Lions on Monday night, sends up some alarms: "We were calling out their plays as (Stafford) was getting up to the line", Lee said, via The Athletic New York's Connor Hughes.

Isaiah Crowell highlighted the ground attack with a 62-yard touchdown run and Bilal Powell looked every bit as quick as he has over the past couple of seasons, carrying the ball 12 time for 60 yards.

"We watched (his) college film, obviously", Bowles said of the 24-year-old, who spent two years out of football after a brief stint earlier this decade at the Simon Fraser University in British Columbia.

It had become a veritable morgue at the end, Jets fans now positioned behind the bench piercing the deathly silence inside Ford Field with a jubilant "J-E-T-S, JETS! So I knew that if I just did my job, took what the defense gave me, that I was going to be able to go out there and look back and have a successful game".

"I would have liked to have gotten it, but I'm happy for D. Lee", cornerback Morris Claiborne said.

Darnold, the youngest quarterback starter since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970, overcame a pick-6 on his first pass attempt.

"I'm going to be most disappointed in myself", Patricia said after the game.

Some Jets say that Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford tipped them off with hand signals so they knew what play was coming.

His game highlight reel included one superb pinpoint pass to Robby Anderson for a 41-yard touchdown in the second quarter which helped put the Jets 17-7 ahead.

Not helping: Lions quarterbacks threw five interceptions. And the former defensive coordinator got a rude welcome to the new gig of head coach.

It didn't last long as the Jets answered to tie the game. Darnold converted a third down with his legs to take the Jets into field goal range. "But in this league, it's one game at a time".

"I've been watching that formation since like July", Lee said.

A one rupee per litre cut in taxes would result in revenues being hit by Rs 30,000 crore on an annualised basis. The Centre now levies a total excise duty of Rs 19.48 per litre of petrol and Rs 15.33 per litre on diesel.

The Jets had played an National Football League record 73 games, dating to 2013, without a defensive TD before Lee returned one of his two interceptions 36 yards for a score in the third. His cool and calm ways were respected and they appreciated that he cared about them off the field.

Until then, let's take a wait-and-see approach with Darnold and his future with the New York Jets.

The Lions ended up with 39 yards on 15 carries.

Lions: Visit the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. If we adjust his performance, and those of other rookie passers, for the era in which each played (meaning we account for the higher passing tendencies of the modern NFL), we see Darnold's debut was solid, but not at all conclusive.
