Detroit Lions (6-7) @ New York Jets (7-6)
Key Injury Watch:
NYJ – OUT – (QB) Mike White, (DT) Quinnen Williams, (RB) James Robinson
This Week 15 matchup is a must-win for both teams, who are barely clinging to any realistic shot of a playoff berth.
The Lions have quietly won 5 of 6, and were actually favored over the now 11-3 Vikings last week. They handled business convincingly against their NFC North rivals to improve to 6-7 on the season.
Jared Goff has sparked some inspired football in Detroit, who suddenly features a bevy of big play receivers.
Rookie burner Jameson Williams wasted no time making his presence felt in his NFL debut with a 41-yard TD on his first touch.
The Lions now have a quite formidable trio in Williams, Amon-Ra St. Brown and DJ Chark and the future truly looks bright as ever in the Motor City.
For the Jets, Mike White has provided a major spark in recent weeks, but will be out today handing the reigns back over to much-maligned youngster Zach Wilson.
While this QB situation clearly feels like a downgrade, the bigger loss for the Jets is the absence of Quinnen Williams. Williams has played at a Pro Bowl caliber level and his 11 sacks are tied for 6th in the NFL.
Can Detroit keep this momentum going and snag the last playoff spot in the NFC?
A win today would make that fantasy seem like far more of a reality, and I think we see it happen in East Rutherford on Sunday.
