And the Detroit Lions offence didnt miss a beat.Stafford threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score and the Lions overcame Johnson being limited by an ankle injury to beat the New York Jets 24-17 on Sunday.He had a couple of catches, but he obviously wasnt himself out there, Stafford said of Johnson. The other guys stepped up big.Jeremy Ross and Eric Ebron caught scoring passes for the Lions, off to a 3-1 start for the second straight season. Stafford finished 24 of 34 for 293 yards, and appeared unfazed by his top receiver shuttling in and out of the game.We knew Calvin was going to be limited today and we were hoping to not have to use him unless it was an emergency, wide receiver Golden Tate said. I think we responded well.Johnsons ankle had him questionable for the game. He had just two catches for 12 yards, but Tate did his best Megatron impersonation, catching eight passes for 116 yards.You guys get caught up in names, Jets linebacker Calvin Pace said. But Golden Tate is a good receiver, too.A struggling Geno Smith had two more turnovers as chants of We Want Vick! echoed throughout MetLife Stadium at times. As he walked off the field, a television camera caught the Jets quarterback shouting an expletive at a heckler in the stands.Before we start this off, first of all I want to apologize if any kids saw me saying any negative remarks walking off the field, Smith said to open his postgame news conference. I kind of let my temper get the best of me in that situation, and its a part of my learning process.The Jets, who made it close on Chris Johnsons 35-yard run with 6:58 left, fell to 1-3 for the first time in Rex Ryans six seasons as coach.Smith was 17 of 33 for 209 yards, including an 11-yard TD pass to Eric Decker, but threw an interception and lost a fumble a€” giving him seven turnovers in four games. The calls for Vick, the veteran backup, could intensify this week despite Ryan saying after the game that Smith would start next Sunday at San Diego.Ive got to let that stuff roll off my back, Smith said. But today, I didnt do well with that.Johnson ripped off a 35-yard run, making it 24-17. But the Jets couldnt muster much else, and the Lions ran out the last 3:41.The game was a matchup of Detroits top-ranked defence and New Yorks No. 2. The Lions had the first big play of the game as Stafford found Ross for a 59-yard touchdown and a 10-3 lead. Ross blew by converted safety Antonio Allen, and then Allen missed a late tackle attempt as Ross got into the end zone.After the Jets went three-and-out on consecutive possessions, Ebron made it 17-3 with a 16-yard catch a€” the first TD in the NFL for the No. 10 overall draft pick in May.The Jets stayed in it by scoring on their first possession of the second half, an 11-yard pass from Smith to Decker that made it 17-10.But the Lions reclaimed control on Staffords 1-yard TD run on the first play of the fourth quarter.

We stumbled a little bit in the third quarter and we needed to put a statement out there. That drive was huge.NOTES: Darius Slay intercepted Smith in the fourth quarter, and former Jets safety James Ihedigbo had a strip sack of Smith on New Yorks next possession.

Marrone said Moeaki will miss a "significant" amount of time, but likely wont miss the remainder of Buffalos training camp. Moeaki suffered the injury at practice on Friday. The hamstring injury is the latest injury setback for the 27-year-old. A third-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2010, Moeaki showed promise as a rookie by catching 47 passes for 556 yards and three touchdowns. But he missed the 2011 season due to a torn ACL and was waived by Kansas City in 2013 after fracturing his shoulder. Moeaki has been pushing incumbent Scott Chandler for the starting tight end job at training camp. The Bills are also without second-year tight end Chris Gragg, who recently sppent time in the hospital with heat-related cramps.dddddddddddd. Marrone said Gragg should return sometime next week. The Bills signed Dominique Jones on Saturday. To make room for Jones, the team released guard Mark Asper. Its the second time Asper has been cut by the Bills; he originally entered the NFL with Buffalo as a sixth-round pick in 2012, but failed to make the team. Jones has two seasons of NFL experience since the Indianapolis Colts signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2012. He played parts of two seasons with the Colts and finished last year with the Kansas City Chiefs. Overall, the 26-year-old has three catches for 42 yards in 12 career games, including three starts. Marrone also said that running back Fred Jackson will likely not miss much time with a lower leg injury. Jackson left practice Friday night after being kicked in the leg.
