Or so it all seemed.

For all the talk this offseason about how this was going to be arguably the worst group of blockers in the National Football League, their performance tonight far exceeded what so many thought they would be capable of at any point this season.

That's not a good look for Patricia, who based on his affiliation with Belichick and the Patriots, is supposed to be prepared for every eventuality.

"I know it sounds insane, but we're a lot better football team than we showed", tackle Taylor Decker said.

The last two quarterbacks, before Darnold, to have their first career passes intercepted and returned for a touchdown? They've always been tough.

The new and improved running game looked like the old one.

On the practice field over the last several weeks, it wasn't hard to see or hear Patricia.

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

It's as good an explanation as any we can come up with.

Darnold was 16-of-21 for 198 yards and two touchdowns, while Stafford was 27-of-46 with four interceptions.

Unfortunately, many news sources used his recent break up with vocalist Ariana Grande as a talking point in the artist's death. Ariana Grande remembered her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller on Instagram without saying a word.


QB comparison: Matthew Stafford is easily one of the top 10 quarterbacks in the league, and probably in the top half dozen. Crowell made things even worse for the Lions with a 62-yard rush that put him past the 100-yard mark on the night. On Lee's first interception, he sat, waited and broke on the ball when Stafford threw it, jumping in front of Theo Riddick for a pick-six of his own. He was thoroughly outplayed by Darnold, who was able to stick to a tightly scripted game plan with help from the Lions' massive breakdowns across the board. "Hope I never have to say that again". "I think that's where I always start".

Speaking of Canadians, there's one more debut in Monday's first game. That was fast. Stafford hit receiver Golden Tate three times on the first drive out of intermission, including the game-tying 24-yard strike.

Coming out of Alabama, the Jets took Namath with the first overall pick in the 1965 AFL Draft.

None of that happened. Cornerback Quandre Diggs had the return.

Somehow the Jets went 73 games without that happening.

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!"

The Jets scored 31 points in the stanza, their most in any quarter since 2008. They got their four TDs on a catch, interception return, punt return and a run. The Jets stocked their defense with all these young starters, and then they added their hopeful face of the franchise. It doesn't matter if you're on offense or defense. "Detroit's got more weapons than NY though".

It has been a laughing point between us for 50 years.
