Fact: The Detroit Lions were an absolute embarrassment on Monday Night Football. The offense was bad, the defense was bad, the special teams were bad, and the coaching was bad.
Lions’ quarterback Matthew Stafford tossed four interceptions and if we did not know better, it almost seemed like the Jets’ defenders knew what was coming.
Well, according to the Jets, they did know what was coming.
“We were calling out their plays as he was getting up to the line,” linebacker Darron Lee said of quarterback Matthew Stafford, who was intercepted four times in the Detroit Lions’ 48-17 loss at Ford Field.
“We knew his signals,” Lee said. “We knew everything. That’s just preparation as a defense. … It seemed like we were in his head as a defense.”
Well, this is certainly a problem!

During his 13 years in Detroit, Verlander and Tigers fans developed a bond that is still strong. It’s a bond that remains special to him. On Sunday, Verlander posted a video message to his fans in Detroit.
“I try to not expect anything,” Verlander said. “I know that those fans know I gave everything I had for a long time, for the better part of 13 years there.
