    Saturday open thread: How many rushing yards will Kerryon Johnson have vs. Patriots? Much like the Detroit Lions Tracy Walker Jersey , the New England Patriots have had a tough time stopping the opposing team’s running game through two weeks. Against the Texans, New England allowed Lamar Miller to rush for 98 yards on 20 carries, while Alfred Blue added another 36 on just five carries. Last week was a little better for them, allowing a total of 104 rushing yards on 24 carries—but much of that was Blake Bortles scrambling for 35 yards.Put it all together and the Patriots are allowing 135.5 rushing yards per game (27th) and 4.7 yards per carry (25th).That’s a matchup the Lions could actually exploit, given that Kerryon Johnson and LeGarrette Blount have breathed life into Detroit’s rushing attack. It’s still unproven overall, but last week’s combined 81 yards rushing on 16 carries is enough for Lions fans to cling to for a shred of optimism in an otherwise bleak start to the season.So today’s Question of the Day is:How many rushing yards will Kerryon Johnson have on Sunday night?My answer: I ask specifically about Kerryon Kerryon Johnson Jersey , because it appears he’s slowly becoming a bigger part of the offense. Obviously, injuries and ejections to Blount have probably bumped his time up thus far, but everything he’s done on the field has justified more snaps on offense.Anyways, in regards to the actual question, much of the answer will rely upon how the game is playing out. If the Lions fall behind quickly (again), obviously Johnson won’t get a lot of opportunities in the run game. If the Lions can keep it close or even (gasp) hold a lead Frank Ragnow Jersey , Detroit will likely try to keep the offense moving on the ground.That being said, I think there’s a pretty good chance this game turns into a shootout, and that means a lot of throwing the ball. I still think Kerryon will set a new high, but it will be something still pretty modest overall. Give me 10 carries for 52 yards. Your turn.Tweets from trade Teddy Bridgewater to Saints; Lions to face Sam Darnold Week 1 It’s been a busy day for NFL quarterback news. First the Green Bay Packers sent backup quarterback Brett Hundley to Seattle for a sixth-round pick. Then the Packers took care of Aaron Rodgers, signing him to a record-breaking four-year extension. Now another backup quarterback is on the move.As first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New York Jets are trading Teddy Bridgewater to the New Orleans Saints.Trade terms have yet to be announced Marvin Jones Jersey , but the relevant news here to Detroit Lions fans is that it appears the Jets will be starting rookie Sam Darnold for Week 1 when the visit Detroit on “Monday Night Football.”UPDATE: The Jets received a third-round pick for Bridgewater, according to Ian Rapoport.Technically, Josh McCown is listed as the team’s first-string quarterback, but Darnold has started the past two preseason games, including the team’s dress rehearsal. The rookie passer has looked fairly solid, going 29-45 for 244 yards Darius Slay Jersey , 2 touchdowns and 1 interception.Meanwhile, McCown only played in the first preseason game and threw a single pass for four yards.As of Tuesday, Jets head coach Todd Bowles would not commit to a Week 1 starter. “Sitting down with the coaches, we’ll go over everything and everybody will give their opinion,” Bowles told MMQB’s Albert Breer. “We just haven’t talked about it, and we won’t until after the last preseason game. We’ll sit down as a staff and we’ll go over every position Matthew Stafford Jersey , including that one, and we’ll come out with our guys.”It’ll be interesting to see how the Jets utilize their quarterbacks in the final preseason game against the Eagles. As of now, they only have Darnold and McCown on the roster. We’ll see how Bowles plays it and if he’ll make up his mind about Week 1’s starter soon. UPDATE 2: Ian Rapoport is reporting Darnold will indeed start vs. the Lions.
