New York Jets at Detroit Lions Second Half Thread

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The first half of Jets football in the 2013 preseason was not pretty. The Lions lead 20-7 at halftime.

It was not a banner night for quarterbacks. Mark Sanchez's stat line looks great at 10 of 13 for 125 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. It is deceptive, though. Sanchez played poorly. In fact, he appeared to be in 2012 form. He threw an interception on a screen that went for a touchdown on his first series and threw what should have been a second interception on a screen on his second series. He got bailed out by Kellen Winslow drilling the defender about to pick the pass off. His completions were mainly on screens, checkdowns, and busted coverages. He was given a lot of safe, simple throws, and still managed to make them dangerous.

It was tough to get a read on Geno Smith. He was given a similar diet of simple throws and finished 5 of 6 for 42 yards. Some penalties and big losses on run plays constantly put him in long yardage situations, and the Jets didn't really open things up.

The defense was not very good. There were numerous blown assignments in coverage. Demario Davis was arguably the biggest goat, while Kyle Wilson and Dee Milliner had some rough plays too.
