At the half in Detroit, the Lions are beating the Jets 20-7. That is not the important thing in an opening preseason game, so here are a couple of statistical updates.
Mark Sanchez had a bad INT to Ziggy Ansah on an attempted screen pass that went back for a TD. Other than that, Mark was sharp, going 10-13 for 125 yards, a 26 yard TD pass to Jeff Cumberland, and the one INT. Geno Smith came in the game in the second quarter, and went 5-6 for 42 yards.
Ryan Spadola was on the field with the ones and did make one catch to convert a third down. He ran an excellent route on a crossing pattern to convert a third and long. The TD catch by Cumberland was an excellent route run, and connection from Mark.
On defense, Mo Wilkerson, despite being held, had one sack. Quinton Coples batted a pass down early, and Ricky Sapp had a nice pressure on QB Shaun Hill. Darrin Walls got beat for one TD, not helping his cause, but Kyle Wilson looked good.
