Matt Patricia Makes Lions Debut Monday Night Against Jets

And that man was non-other than rapper Eminem, who's coming off the release of his surprise album a few weeks ago called Kamikaze. The Jets could've piled on even more in the final minutes but turned the ball over on downs after kneeling to take time off the clock.

The Jets rookie quarterback threw for 198 yards and two touchdowns on 16-of-21 passing, Darron Lee had two of the Jets' five interceptions (including a pick-six) and Andre Roberts returned a punt for a touchdown as NY scored 31 unanswered points in a 48-17 win over the Detriot Lions 41-17 on Monday at Ford Field. Look for Eminem to be dropping a new video for his Kamikaze song "Lucky You" with Joyner Lucas this Wednesday afternoon at 1pm ET as well.

"We've got to coach this a lot better than what we did", he said.

Apparently, the Jets had a hint on where Stafford was throwing the ball.

The booing began early. But he's also already showcased a lot of the poise and movement that convinced the Jets to take him No. 3 overall in April - enough that Patricia should be anxious if someone other than Ezekiel Ansah and Darius Slay can't make big plays Monday night.

Despite the promising start, the Lions were booed by the home fans throughout the first half.

Somehow the Jets went 73 games without that happening.

Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford was intercepted four times. He was on Bill Belichick's staff for 14 seasons, serving as his defensive coordinator the last six years. The Lions had minus-2 yards total offense in the first quarter.

Tim Boyle's wardrobe of choice on Monday was like a lot of people's in town: He went with the Aaron Rodgers jersey. At 33 years old, is Jordy Nelson washed up? The Rams offense, on the other hand, is mostly a known commodity.

The LA coroner said the cause of Miller's death is yet to be determined and that a post-mortem examination will be carried. Tributes to Miller came from rappers including Wiz Khalifa, a fellow Pittsburgh artist who took Miller under his wing.


Monday's rout brought little reason for optimism.

That was followed by Lee's pick-six, the first the Jets have had since Antonio Allen picked off Tom Brady and scored on October 20, 2013.

No one in the National Football League is really sure what a Patricia-led team will look like because what he showed in the preseason is not expected to be anything like what he'll do in Week 1 against the Jets. NY capped the quarter when Isaiah Crowell scored on a 62-yard run with 54 seconds left, making the score 48-17.

Jets players said they weren't stealing signals; they attributed it to thorough preparation and scouting. Then Darron Lee intercepted Stafford and went 36 yards for a touchdown.

"I'm going to be most disappointed in myself".

"We're going to play better every game, that's our goal", wide receiver Quincy Enunwa said.

"He's always smooth under pressure, he doesn't get rattled, so we weren't anxious whatsoever", Lee said.

There was nearly nothing for the Lions to feel good about. Rookie Kerryon Johnson had only five carries, and Detroit ran for just 39 yards. There weren't many Detroit fans left. Defensive end Ziggy Ansah left with a shoulder injury.
