In a tough road environment, against the Jets who had the second-best defense in the NFL, the Lions pulled out a huge 24-17 win. Detroit now 3-1 alone atop NFC North.
Here are Lions’ three offensive stars of the game:
1. Reggie Bush late in the game, with Joique Bell out with a possible concussion, had to run the ball and he did including a 16-yard scamper on a second-and 5 late in fourth. He stayed in-bounds to keep clock running. He had 12 carries, 46 yards and four catches for 19 yards.
2. Matthew Stafford was sacked four times, but still managed a good game. He ran in for a touchdown and had six carries for 8 rushing yards overall. Don’t call him Cam Newton, but when needed he proved he can run. He finished 24-34, 293 yards, two touchdowns and zero turnovers.
3. Golden Tate took over with Calvin Johnson not 100 percent. Tate finished with eight catches for 116 yards. A key play of the game was Tate's third-and-10 conversion in the third that kept a 90-yard scoring drive going.
