The Jets opened the game on defense. The Lions moved right down the field, getting all the way down to the Jets’ 1 yard line before the Jets defense came up with a big stop on 4th and goal at the 1, turning the ball over on downs.
The Jets took over on offense deep in their own territory at the 2 yard line and went backwards on a 3 and out possession. Punting from the back of the endzone, Braden Mann put up a terrible punt with no hang time. Detroit returned the punt for a touchdown and an early 7 - 0 lead.
The two teams exchanged punts as the 1st quarter drew to a close with the Jets deep in their own territory on the 22 yard line.
The Jets struck quickly to start the 2nd quarter. A 33 yard pass to Garrett Wilson followed immediately by a 40 yard touchdown pass to C.J. Uzomah tied the game up at 7 - 7.
The Lions came right back with a long drive that bogged down deep in Jets territory. A 31 yard field goal gave the Lions a 10 - 7 lead halfway through the 2nd quarter.
A quick Jets drive at the end of the half, highlighted by a 50 yard bomb to Jeff Smith, ended in a Greg Zuerlein 34 yard field goal to tie the score at 10 - 10 as the half expired.
Enjoy the second half everyone.
