1 -Sam Darnold will throw for 240 yards, 2 touchdowns and have 1 turnover. He will compete 62% of his passes, run for 25 yards and be sacked three times. He will have a 6.7 YPA. Jets fans will leave the game encouraged by his debut performance.

2 – Matthew Stafford will throw for 310 yards, 2 touchdowns and have 1 interception (by Trumaine Johnson). The Detroit offense will move the football consistently against the Jets defense.

3 – Golden Tate will fare well against Buster Skrine in the slot, finishing with 7 receptions for 90 yards and a touchdown. Detroit will do most of their damage in the middle of the field when throwing to Tate and their running backs.

4 – Quincy Enunwa will be the Jets lead receiver, finishing with 5 catches for 75 yards and a touchdown. Robby Anderson will have at least one catch over 20 yards but finish with less total yards than Enunwa. Terrelle Pryor will have 2 or less receptions.

5 – Bilal Powell will lead all Jets running backs in touches and yards. He will score a touchdown. Isaiah Crowell will finish with 55 total offensive yards. Trenton Cannon will have no offensive touches.

8 – The Jets defense will only record one sack on the night and it will be from one of their defensive backs. Doug Middleton will play the majority of the reps filling in for Marcus Maye but the Jets will frequently use three safety looks with Terrence Brooks also on the field.
