Detroit Lions vs New York Jets Preview

lions vs jetsThe Detroit Lions are set to travel to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, to face off against the New York Jets in a game this weekend that sees the Lions looking to earn their 3rd win and the Jets looking to earn their 2nd.

The Lions are coming into the game this week having earned a 19-7 victory last week over the division rival Green Bay Packers, which earned them their 2nd win on the year. The Jets are coming into this week, having lost a close game last week to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football, by the score of 27-19.

The Lions won their game in large part by being able to keep Aaron Rodgers production limited by having a solid pass rush, and tight coverage on the receivers. The Lions will need to reproduce that performance this week, as well as rely on the Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson QB wide reciever combination to take advantage of the Jets week secondary to win this game.

The Jets, on the other hand, lost in large part due to their inability to hold onto the ball last week against the Bears, as they turned the ball over 3 times, with 2 of those turnovers leading to touchdowns for the Bears, one being a pick 6. The Jets will have to keep the ball under control this week, and hope for a strong performance by Geno Smith.

The line for this game is set in favor of the Lions by 2.5 points, while the over/under for the game is set at 44.5 points.

The Lions, in my opinion, come into this week with an extreme advantage , being able to unleash one of the best, if not the best, wide receiver in the NFL against a week secondary. Lions win handily, 31-14.
