The New York Jets make their way to Ford Field November 7th to take on teh resurgent Detroit Lions. The Detroit Lions have played tough on the home turf and this game will be a legitimate test of their abilities and their home field advantage. Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets will see their offensive line tested by one of the best defensive lines in football.
With the New York Jets suffering their first shutout loss at the hands of the Green Bay Packers since 2006 they will be looking to redeem themselves in Detroit. The Detroit Lions beat the Washington Redskins in a close game on their home field and they are 3-0 on their home field against the point spread. This game could evolve into a defensive chess match with both teams looking to gain an edge.
New York Jets Offense vs Detroit Lions Defense
Mark Sanchez and his New York Jets offense looked pale in the first game back from a bye week against the NFC North’s Green Bay Packers. The New York Jets will have to establish their running game with LaDanian Tomlinson and Shonn Greene early in this game. Under pressure, Mark Sanchez is not quick to make the right decision. He does not have many picks this season but he has yet to be tested since the Baltimore Ravens game. He only threw for 74 yards in that game.
The Detroit Lions are vulnerable deep but the defensive line helps to limit the time opposing quarterbacks have to expose their weakness on the corners. The defensive line will fight to overcome a solid New York Jets offensive line. This is where this game will be decided. There will be some contentious hitting on the front lines of this game and there will be some bad feelings once the gun goes off. The Detroit Lions defense will have a slight edge over the New York Jets offense.
Detroit Lions Offense vs New York Jets Defense
Matt Stafford is back for theDetroit Lions and he looked good in his first game back against the Carolina Panthers. Stafford sprayed the ball around but still needs a consistent running game week in and week out to give him protection. Jahvid Best is said to be the best player on the Detroit Lions and they need to get him on track with 20-25 carries per game.
The New York Jets defense is solid but they are vulnerable on the outside. Even with Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie there is still weaknesses to beat them on out routes and straight up the middle deep shots. Look for Stafford and Calvin Johnson to try to hook up several times on clear out routes straight up the field. The New York Jets defense has the edge over the Detroit Lions offense.
