Podcast: Talking Jets vs. Lions with Matt Dery

NFL: Detroit Lions at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

We are just a few days away from the 2018 New York Jets season getting underway. The Jets open with a Monday night game against the Detroit Lions. On today’s podcast we look ahead to this Week 1 opener. It is the kickoff of a new feature, Crossover Wednesday. On most Wednesdays during the season, we will do a crossover podcast with the opponent’s show. Today Matt Dery of Locked on Lions and I join forces.

Matt and I break down our respective teams and look at some of the key matchups. For a team with a quarterback in his prime and a new head coach, things seem a bit less optimistic in Detroit than one might expect. A rough preseason and concerns about the pass rush linger in the Motor City. Of course, the Jets have their own issues on the offensive line with their own pass rush. We go further in depth on both sides of the ball looking at the strengths and weaknesses of the teams.

In the end we both expect a tight game, albeit one where the Lions are favored.

Thanks for listening.
