The New York Jets are happy to have starting quarterback Sam Darnold back on the field after he missed the past few weeks with mono.
Entering Sunday’s game without a win, the Jets’ offense was lost without Darnold. At least early on against the Cowboys, that has not been the case.
Dallas attempted to punch it in on fourth-and-two from the Jets seven yard line late in the second quarter. It failed miserably, leading to New York taking over at its own eight.
That’s when Darnold found Robby Anderson for a 92-yard touchdown to put the Jets up 14-3. Check it out there.
Talk about a huge swing of momentum for the Jets as they look to upset Dallas.
Even a field goal there would have pulled the Cowboys to within 7-6. Instead, the Jets got seven and took an 11-point lead.
Welcome back, Mr. Darnold.
