Darnold completed 23 of 36 passes for 199 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 13-6 win over Buffalo. He also finished with minus-2 yards on three rushing attempts. Darnold broke a 3-3 tie with a one-yard touchdown to Jamison Crowder early in the fourth quarter, bringing his season TD:INT to 19:13. The second-year quarterback also cleared the 3,000-yard mark, finishing with 3,024 passing yards despite missing three games due to mononucleosis. Darnold showed excellent progress in the second half of the season, leading the Jets to a 6-2 record down the stretch while compiling a 13:4 TD:INT over those final eight games. The third overall selection from the 2018 draft is locked in as the Jets' starting quarterback heading into next season, and his strong finish should give the team plenty of optimism.
Darnold completed 16 of 26 passes for 183 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 16-10 win over Pittsburgh. He added three yards on four carries and committed three fumbles, losing one. Darnold capped the opening drive with a 23-yard touchdown pass to Robby Anderson, but the second-year quarterback went quiet after that in what turned into a defensive battle. His lost fumble in the final minute of the first half was a costly one, as Pittsburgh turned it into a touchdown three plays later. Darnold has compiled an 18:12 TD:INT in 12 games played heading into the Week 17 season finale in Buffalo.
Darnold completed 18 of 32 passes for 218 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the Jets' 42-21 loss to the Ravens on Thursday. He also rushed once for 11 yards and lost a fumble. Darnold put together a serviceable fantasy night while playing under less-than-ideal circumstances against an aggressive Ravens defense. The second-year quarterback's two turnovers certainly didn't help the Jets' cause in a game in which they already faced long odds, but from a fantasy perspective, Darnold's fourth multi-touchdown effort over the last five games certainly had to please managers who rostered him in their playoff contests. Darnold will look to continue putting together a strong finish to his sophomore campaign in a Week 16 battle against the Steelers a week from Sunday.
Darnold completed 20 of 36 passes for 270 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 22-21 win over Miami. He added three carries for three yards. Darnold threw a 26-yard touchdown to Robby Anderson and a 14-yarder to Demaryius Thomas, both in the second quarter. He also drove the offense down the field for a game-winning field goal as time expired, taking over down 21-19 with 1:33 to go. The second-year quarterback has compiled an 8:2 TD:INT against subpar competition over the past four weeks, but the opponent difficulty will rise dramatically in Week 15, as the Jets have a quick turnaround Thursday in Baltimore.
Darnold (knee/thumb) practiced fully Wednesday. Darnold is a little banged up in advance of Sunday's game against the 3-9 Dolphins, but his full practice participation Wednesday signals that his Week 14 status isn't in doubt. The quarterback -- who had built up some positive momentum in Weeks 11 and 12 -- will thus look to bounce back from his 239-yard, zero-touchdown effort in last weekend's 22-6 loss to the previously winless Bengals,
