4. Lions wide receiver Jameson Williams gets a rushing attempt
Williams only needed one play to make a big impact in his second NFL game, with a 41-yard touchdown reception to kickoff the scoring against the Vikings in Week 14. He also had a nice block on Justin Jackson’s touchdown run that should not be overlooked (and certainly wasn’t overlooked by his teammates.
Apart from the Jets having one of the top cornerback duos in the league this year (Ahmad “Sauce” Gardnr and D.J. Reed), it’s forecasted to be windy in MetLife Stadium on Sunday. So conditions will not be conducive to the deep passing game.
While Williams can run a complete route tree and he may have a catch of two manufactured for him on short, quick throws from Jared Goff, offensive coordinator Ben Johnson could very well have something else up his sleeve to get the ball into the hands of the speedy rookie.
Lining Williams up in the backfield would certainly be something, and not out of the realm of possibility. One way or another (a reverse, a direct snap?), Williams will somehow get a rushing attempt on Sunday.
