Both the New York Jets and Detroit Lions are coming off wins in their first preseason game of 2017.
It’s not much to be excited about in terms of record, but there were encouraging plays from both teams and they’ll look to build upon that in this one.
New York Jets
To no one’s surprise, even in preseason, the New York Jets offense struggled to get things going.
The good news, though, is that Josh McCown led the Jets to a touchdown during his one and only drive to open things up.
In fact, it was the first time since 2003 that the Jets scored a touchdown on their preseason-opening drive.
After that, the offense struggled with Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty leading the way to a total of zero points.
The good news is that New York Jets have a strong defensive line and they showed up against the Tennessee Titans. The Jets recorded a total of eight sacks and they were legit sacks.
Leonard Williams got on the board early in the first quarter sacking Marcus Mariota. It was ones vs ones and the Jets shut down the Titans.
It was a quality performance from the Detroit Lions all-around as they beat the Indianapolis Colts 24-10.
Matthew Stafford started the game and quickly departed after throwing an interception to end his one and only series.
Jake Rudock took over and he was quality with Kenny Golladay impressing as he made some nice catches including two that went for touchdowns.
The Lions already have Golden Tate and Marvin Jones, but Golladay showed he has the potential to make some plays. He’ll be looking to push for some playing time once the games start getting serious.
Watch out for Golladay in this one, let’s see if he can have a repeat performance.
The defense was strong, as well.
The Lions recorded five seconds and didn’t allow a touchdown until the final play of the game.

This should be an interesting game and perhaps a close low scoring contest. Both defenses have plenty of quality depth and, of course, when you factor in the backup quarterbacks in New York the Lions should feast on them.
