Either LeGarrette Blount or Kerryon Johnson will start at running back Monday, and that duo plus Theo Riddick give the Lions a versatile backfield. The Lions should be better on their offensive line just by virtue of being healthy, and Johnson has transformative potential. But until we see the ground game in action, this is still the team that ranked last in the NFL in rushing last year.
The Jets weren’t a great run defense in 2017, but they do have a formidable space-eater in the middle in 32-year-old Steve McLendon. Leonard Williams is the Jets’ best lineman, and Avery Williamson is a reliable tackler, but Williamson’s cohort at inside linebacker, Darron Lee, has taken heat recently from Detroit native Bart Scott for lacking toughness.
While the Lions’ running game remains a curiosity, the passing game is no such thing. In Marvin Jones, Golden Tate and Kenny Golladay, the Lions have one of the better receiving trios in the league. Jones is a proven deep threat, Tate does most of his damage out of the slot, and Golladay is the big-bodied wildcard entering his second season.
Matthew Stafford is coming off a year in which he threw for 4,446 yards and completed 65.7 percent of his passes, but also committed 17 turnovers. He was the victim of poor pass protection (a career-high 47 sacks). If that improves, the turnovers should come back down.
The Jets ranked in the bottom third of the NFL in both interceptions and takeaways last season, so they went out and signed the best cornerback on the market in Trumaine Johnson. He wins with his length and physicality, and he should see plenty of time on Jones. The Jets don’t have much in the way of pass rush, though Bowles is known for his creative blitz packages.
With Bilal Powell as their lead back and plenty of unfavorable game scripts, the Jets still finished as a middle-of-the-pack rushing team last year. They added Isaiah Crowell in the offseason and are committed to giving young quarterback Sam Darnold the support of a running game.
Crowell is a downhill runner who should help the Jets stay on schedule on offense. He averaged 4.5 yards per carry with the Cleveland Browns the last two seasons. Powell is the change-of-pace back, a good receiver who can get to the edge in the Jets’ zone-blocking scheme. The Jets didn’t get great play out of their offensive line in the preseason, and their five starters didn’t play a single snap together in exhibition games.
The Lions saw their run defense fall apart in the second half of last season, then overhauled their front seven to account for a new scheme this spring. Sylvester Williams is a stout nose tackle who occupies space, and the Lions need big games from linebackers Jarrad Davis and Christian Jones against the run to force Darnold out of his comfort zone.
