  • 5 Things to Watch Detroit Lions vs. New York Jets on Monday night

Darnold threw a pick-six on his first career pass against the Lions on Monday night.

There have been some questions about the Jets potentially risking shattering Darnold's confidence, so it will be interesting to see how the former USC star bounces back.

There undoubtedly will be rookie-year ups and downs for Darnold, the No. 3 overall selection in this year's draft and the only member of this celebrated class of rookie quarterbacks to be a Week 1 starter. Darnold threw for 198 yards and two touchdowns, and the Jets also scored on defense and special teams. He wasn't dinking and dunking, either, as he averaged a whopping3 9.4 yards per attempt. But the Jets struck gold in the preseason by balancing the ground game with the spry pocket maneuvering of Darnold and now-departed backup Teddy Bridgewater. Darnold thew a pretty pass down the left sideline and Anderson made a nice grab in the end zone for the 41-yard score and a 17-7 lead. Those 31 points went unanswered by the Lions after Detroit tied the game at 17.

There was an energy the Jets' entire team hadn't showed for a while.

Patricia is the first National Football League coach to lose by 31 or more points in his head-coaching debut since Tom Cable of the Oakland Raiders in October 2008.

"They're gonna have to play around Darnold". During the first quarter of Monday night's game against the New York Jets, Matthew Stafford and Co. have been a miserable wreck, and the fans are letting the offense know about it. Stafford has been forced to carry Detroit on his back for far too long, but this year, finally, the team appears to have an able stable of backs. Those were more important to getting him on the field early than his obvious arm and athleticism gifts.

What do you expect from Sam Darnold in his first start? It's not easy to compensate for mistakes in the National Football League, but the ability to get back up and not got rattled is an unteachable quality to green QBs.

Is there pressure on coach Todd Bowles to win right away?

The Jets should expect Darnold to throw many more interceptions in his rookie season. However he really didn't do much other than just stand off to the side as the Jets were the visitors and were given the call to choose heads or tails.
