Robby Anderson hauls in Sam Darnold's 1st career TD pass

Jets ready to find out if they have enough help for Sam Darnold

Or so it all seemed. The Lions won nine, just as they did in 2016 when they made the playoffs. The best storylines are written after the game.

And from the personal archives, there are lessons to be learned about going overboard in either direction on one game.

Can Sam Darnold lead the Jets to the road victory in his National Football League debut?

The loss was a nightmare start for new Lions coach Matt Patricia, the highly rated former New England Patriots defensive guru who took over NFC North strugglers in the close season. They've always been tough. The biggest concerns are at tight end and the line tasked with protecting Darnold.

Darnold connected with Quincy Enunwa for his second touchdown pass of the night to make it 24-17 before Darron Lee picked off Stafford to run in a 36-yard interception return for the score.

Patricia was asked if he saw any bright spots.

A weird scenario faces three-time major victor Jordan Spieth should a rainy forecast prove true and no golf takes place on Monday. He added: "I will obviously accept whatever fine it is and move on and try and add one every year but it's kind of tough".

"There's not a lot to be happy about", Patricia said.

It's as good an explanation as any we can come up with. "When you can do that, you can be a pretty good team".

He also outplayed 30-year-old Matthew Stafford.

The No. 3 overall pick described the challenges in front of him this season.

The Jets have been stuck in the basement of the AFC East, finishing no better than third in four of their last six seasons, but the Lions really haven't been much better.

It actually began with a flourish for Detroit when Quandre Diggs intercepted rookie Sam Darnold on the first play from scrimmage and went 37 yards for a touchdown. "Hope I never have to say that again". "It's a team game, and it starts with me". There's always going to be one-year guys, two-year guys and 10-year guys.

Hurricane Isaac maintains strength behind Florence, Helene
Locations that have been directly hit by a category 4 hurricane in the past have been uninhabitable for weeks. The hurricane is about 580 miles SSE of Bermuda and 1,240 miles ESE of Cape Fear, North Carolina .

Roberts then tiptoed down the sideline for a 78-yard score, erasing the memory of the Jets' shaky special teams in the preseason.

Stafford was out of rhythm nearly the entire game, as he completed only 27 of 46 passes for 286 yards.

Surely, the Lions had righted the ship and would take control?

The Jets dominated in all phases. It was the first time the Jets had scored 40 points or more since the opener in 2012 against the Bills. They got their four TDs on a catch, interception return, punt return and a run. His cool and calm ways were respected and they appreciated that he cared about them off the field. At one point, the Jets were down three of their top five defensive back due to injuries.

From the archives: It will be 50 years ago this week - September 15, 1968 - that the Lions opened the regular season at Dallas. He made an on-target deep throw to wide receiver Robby Anderson for a gorgeous 41-yard touchdown.

I somewhat disagree with this when talking about New York's skill positions.
