Sam Darnold is about to make NFL history.The New York Jets plan to have the 21-year-old rookie start Monday in Detroit Adult Lamar Jackson Jersey , making him the youngest quarterback to do so in an opener since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. And just to put Darnold in the spotlight a little more, he is set to become the first rookie quarterback to start a season opener on "Monday Night Football."Darnold acknowledged celebrating his accomplishment before shifting his focus and sounding like a veteran."I know that just because I get named the starter doesn't mean that we won the game," he said.Darnold beat out Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater to earn the job perhaps as expected after New York drafted him No. 3 overall out of USC. New York coach Todd Bowles insisted Darnold will be asked to run the team's regular offense that won't be altered to keep it simple for him.Bowles, meanwhile, hopes the Jets' can slow down Detroit when it has the ball."Defensively, you've got to keep the score down whether you got Joe Montana, Sam Darnold or Roger Staubach," Bowles said.Detroit drafted Matthew Stafford No. 1 overall in 2009 and he beat out Daunte Culpepper to start in Week 1 of his rookie year against New Orleans.Stafford said he didn't remember much about the game other than facing the Drew Brees-led Saints, who went on to win the Super Bowl after opening with a 45-27 win at home over Detroit.It is probably a day Stafford wishes to forget.Stafford was 16 of 37 passes and his 43.2 completion percentage ranks as his sixth-lowest in 125 career games. He threw for 205 yards with three interceptions and his only score was a 1-yard run against the Saints. Brees, meanwhile, threw six touchdown passes.Here are some other things know about the Jets-Lions matchup:THE OTHER DEBUT: Days away from leading an NFL team for the first time, Lions coach Matt Patricia refused to publicly relish it."My 12-year-old self is probably freaking out somewhere," he said.Patricia is very familiar with the Jets because he was the New England's defensive coordinator for the last six years and was on Bill Belichick's staff for 14 seasons."He'll have some things up his sleeve," Bowles said. "He's handled us quite a few times, so we've got our work cut out for us."CATCHING ONThe Jets have a new-look and mostly unheralded receiving corps. Quincy Enunwa is on track to play in his first regular-season game since 2016 after missing all of last year with a neck injury. Terrelle Pryor Limited Mark Andrews Jersey , signed in the offseason after one disappointing season in Washington, appears ready to play after breaking his right ankle during offseason workouts.Jermaine Kearse led New York with 65 catches last season, but is dealing with an abdomen injury. Robby Anderson is looking to build off a breakout performance in his second NFL season in which he had 63 catches.NO WORRIESThe Lions were lackluster in the preseason, struggling with starters on both sides of the ball, and are not worried about that fact."On Monday night, we don't have to be the best team in the NFL," Detroit receiver Golden Tate said. "We just need to be better than the team we're playing."TRU STORYThe Jets had a lot of salary cap space in the offseason and used a chunk of it to sign Pro Bowl cornerback Trumaine Johnson to a five-year, $72.5 million deal after he had 18 interceptions over six years with the Rams."He's kind of a game-changer," Tate said. "He takes the right chances at the right moment. We're going to have to be real crisp in our routes and find a way to get open."It's going to be a great challenge and I'm not just speaking for him, but for the rest of the guys out there."New York is hoping Johnson can combine with Morris Claiborne to form one of the better cornerback tandems in the league. The Jets also have promising second-year safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye in the secondary, although Maye might not be 100 percent while still recovering from offseason ankle surgery. The confident group has matching T-shirts that read: "New Jack City."SAFETY NETDetroit safety Glover Quin has started 132 straight games, a streak that trails just San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers (192) and Baltimore cornerback Brandon Carr (160) among active players.Follow Larry Lage on Twitter at s://larrylage OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens rookie general manager Eric DeCosta waited his entire life to make a selection in the NFL draft, so delaying the moment for a few extra minutes wasn’t much of a hardship.When the wait was over, DeCosta selected wide receiver Marquise Brown of Oklahoma.And by trading the 22nd overall pick to the Eagles on Thursday night Mark Andrews Ravens Jersey , DeCosta netted a couple of extra draft choices before selecting Brown at No. 25 overall.After waiting 2½ hours to get on the clock, DeCosta swapped first-rounders with Philadelphia and received the Eagles’ fourth- and sixth-round picks. Then DeCosta took the cousin of NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown. A standout in his own right, Marquise Brown scored 17 touchdowns in two years with the Sooners and had a pair of 1,000-yard seasons.“What are the chances a guy who had to walk to work and fight his way just to get to junior college ends up being the first receiver taken?” Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said. “I’m thrilled for him and his opportunity. He’s going to bring a lot to the Baltimore Ravens. Their fans will love his explosiveness, which we really came to appreciate the last couple of years at Oklahoma.”Brown fills a need for Baltimore after the offseason departure of wideouts John Brown and Michael Crabtree. The 5-foot-10, 170-pounder — nicknamed “Hollywood” in part because he grew up in Hollywood, Florida — Brown made a strong impression on DeCosta during a visit to the team complex last week.The relationship gets a bit more serious now.“Him being my first pick was emotional for both of us, the stress that he and I will be forever linked,” DeCosta said.DeCosta replaced Ozzie Newsome, who had the final say in every Ravens draft since the team moved from Cleveland in 1996. After working closely with Newsome for more than two decades, DeCosta took over in January. He had Newsome as an adviser over the past few weeks and Newsome was in the draft room when it came time for Baltimore to make its pick.Stealing a page from his predecessor, DeCosta chose to stockpile picks for the later rounds. As it stands now, the Ravens have two selections in the third round, three in the fourth, one fifth-rounder and a trio of sixth-round choices.“I was a little bit nervous that Philly would take him Elite Mark Andrews Jersey ,” DeCosta said of the first-round swap. “It’s a calculated risk. You know we like to make trades. It made sense to roll the dice a little bit, so we did.”Brown waited anxiously between the 22nd and 25th picks.“When they traded back I got a little nervous, but everything worked out,” he said.DeCosta has been busy since making the jump from assistant GM. To counter for the loss of linebackers Terrell Suggs, C.J. Mosley and Za’Darius Smith through free agency, DeCosta signed running back Mark Ingram and safety Earl Thomas, negotiated contract extensions to cornerback Tavon Young, tight end Nick Boyle, kicker Justin Turner and guard Marshal Yanda.He also signed quarterback Robert Griffin III to a two-year deal that keeps him as a backup to Lamar Jackson.Drafted with the 32nd overall pick last year, Jackson stepped in for an injured Joe Flacco in mid-November and led the Ravens to the AFC North title. Newsome gave up a 2019 second-round pick to Philadelphia to get Jackson, so Baltimore’s next selection isn’t slated to come until the third round at 85th overall.DeCosta came into the draft looking to find a wide receiver, a pass rusher and an inside offensive lineman. He checked one off that list by taking Brown, who averaged 18.3 yards per catch at Oklahoma.“He’s got a certain toughness about him and he’s a playmaker,” coach John Harbaugh said. “He’s a perfect fit for what we’re trying to do offensively.”
