The New York Jets intercepted five passes in a game for the first time in 19 years, and they believe it’s because they knew what was coming.

“We knew his signals,” Lee said. “We knew everything. That’s just preparation as a defense. … It seemed like we were in his head as a defense.”

Jets players said they weren’t stealing signals; they attributed it to thorough preparation and scouting. 

Asked how the Jets knew Stafford’s signals, Lee said,

Stafford was out of rhythm almost the entire game, as he completed 27 of 46 passes for 286 yards. There isn’t so much of stealing signals in football games versus football games, but I believe they studied a lot of film leading up into week 1. 

Week 2 won’t be as easy for the Jets, as they won’t have the entire preseason to game plan.
