Game #7 - Detroit Lions (1-5-0) at New York Jets (3-3-0) - Open Thread

Following a game where the Lions got their first win of the season, Detroit will look to get number two on the road today. Led by Roy Williams and an offense that is finally clicking, the Lions have a great chance to get that victory if they don't make any costly mistakes.

The New York Jets come into this game at 3-3, and are hoping to get a "W" to put themselves into position to make a run at the playoffs. With a filled injury report for New York, it won't come easy, but they have the ability to get it done.

The keys to this game for Detroit are establishing a running game and not allowing any big plays. Jon Kitna will have Roy Williams as his go-to guy all day, but Kevin Jones needs to have another 100+ yard game in order for Detroit to come out on top. On the other side of the ball, the defense can't allow Chad Pennington to throw it down field. The Lions defense showed some weakness in the secondary last week, and although they did still win, it made things closer than originally hoped.
