JetsFan.com scouts each New York Jets’ opponent and puts together what they believe should be their team’s game plan for the week.
Jets’ teams of the past have encountered similar easy stretches only to disappoint and make their task much more difficult. If they want to be considered among the NFL’s elite, they have to put last week’s disappointing loss behind them and take care of business versus a lesser team.
But if they take the Lions lightly they will leave Detroit with another loss. The Lions are a deceptive team. One look at their record (2-5) makes you think they will be a push over but this team is improving and will play the Jets tough.
Since week 2 their offense leads the NFC with 28.2 points scored per game. They struggle on the road but in three home games they have averaged 37.7 per game.
Matthew Stafford is just one game back from his shoulder injury and although he looked good against Washington, I am not convinced he is all the way back. The Redskins have one of the worst defenses in the league and it was not until late in that game that the Lions’ offense was able to pull away.
