Heading into Week 1, the New York Jets go up against the Detroit Lions in Ford Field on Monday Night Football Here’s a preview, how to watch on TV, and of course, live streaming of tonight’s game.
The New York Jets will open up their regular season on Monday Night Football on the road against the Detroit Lions. Not only will it feature the bright night lights of primetime football but also begin a new era when it comes to the most important position on the team.
Officially named the starting quarterback for tonight, rookie Sam Darnold will be under center and do his best to start the Jets season off with a win. Darnold could present an interesting challenge to the Lions defense due to that unknown factor he brings to the table since all they had to go by in preparation was Darnold’s collegiate highlights and preseason film.
The Lions are coming off a 9-7 season in which they barely missed the NFL Playoffs but are hoping to get right back into the postseason picture with another winning year. The Jets defense will undoubtedly be tested by the strong arm of quarterback Matthew Stafford and newly acquired running back LeGarrette Blount.

This will be a big test for the Jets to see if they can develop an identity early on in the season. Whether it’s from the brilliant play of Darnold, a ground-and-pound rushing attack, or a stout defensive secondary, this is the perfect time to establish a top strength of the team and run with it from here on out.
