Darnold Throws 2 TD’s As Jets Get First Win


Sam Darnold not gave the Jets' struggling offense a huge boost in his return from mononucleosis, he may have made every Dallas Cowboys fan feel sicker than he has all season.

Darnold was 23 of 32 for 338 yards and tossed a pair of TD passes—including this 92-yard bomb to Robby Anderson for second longest TD pass in franchise history—as New York held on to beat the Cowboys 24-22 for their first win of the season yesterday.

The Jets led 21-9 in the fourth quarter, but Dak Prescott and the top-ranked Cowboys offense stormed back—and had a chance to tie in the closing moments.

Watch as Prescott runs for this four-yard touchdown with 43 seconds left, making it a two-point game and then Cowboys fans can watch in horror as Prescott is quickly met by a blitzing Jamal Adams and can’t connect for the game tying two-point conversion.

And just like that the Cowboys have gone from 3-0 to 3-3, as the only thing dropping more quickly than the Cowboys win percentage is the percentage of Dak’s new contract.
