Until the final drive, Sam Darnold's performance in his return to the starting lineup would be defined by his best and worst play. However, Darnold's composure in leading the team downfield for the late game-winning score in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Buffalo Bills was exactly the kind of thing the Jets and their fans had been hoping to see from him this year.

Let's look at some specific examples before we draw conclusions:

3rd quarter, 8.18. Jets trailing 20-13. third-and-9 at the Bills 33

After a first half which saw Darnold throw just six passes, the Jets continued to be conservative at the start of the second half, but moved into field goal range on their opening drive with Darnold completing three short passes. However, faced with a third-and-9, Darnold made a poor decision on the move and was intercepted by Tremaine Edmunds.

The Jets were operating out of an empty set on the play but Darnold was immediately flushed from the pocket as both tackles were beaten on the play. That was a rare breakdown in pass protection from a unit that didn't give up a sack or quarterback hit all day. As he rolled right, Darnold signalled to his receiver to get open down the field but then committed the cardinal sin of throwing back across his body.

Chris Herndon had uncovered momentarily, but Darnold forced the throw and the pass was picked off. Although he leads the league in interceptions, Darnold has been avoiding mistakes as egregious as that one, so this should serve as a reminder of the importance of looking after the football.

4th quarter, 12:17. Jets trailing 20-13. third-and-5 at the Bills 7

Darnold bounced back immediately from his mistake by authoring an 85-yard drive on the next possession. This culminated in perhaps his signature play of the season so far. Once again, the Jets were operating out of a five-wide formation and this time the pocket collapsed with Kyle Williams stunting around the left side to flush Darnold from the pocket. Having eluded Williams, Darnold reversed his field and rolled back to the left, kept his eyes up and fired a strike to Robby Anderson on the move.

This is the kind of play that demonstrates Darnold's elite potential. The throw alone, moving to his left, was special, but his athleticism to avoid the rush, composure to reset himself as he reversed course back toward the line of scrimmage and his vision to anticipate Anderson uncovering in the end zone showcase his elite tools.

Despite making the earlier mistake on the interception, it was encouraging to see Darnold make an anticipatory throw on the move this time.

4th quarter, 1:54. Jets trailing 23-20. second-and-4 at the Bills 42

This was the key play of the game as Darnold's pinpoint deep pass to Anderson set the Jets up at the 5-yard line, moving them into range for at least the tying field goal or -- as it transpired -- the game-winning touchdown.

Having moved the Jets to the fringes of field range, Darnold exploited a defense that was playing to prevent any short gains by dropping a deep ball right in over Anderson's shoulder. Darnold launched the deep ball after having faked a hand-off to the back in a four-wide formation.

Rather than an anticipatory throw, this was more a case of throwing it to a spot and trusting his receiver to go and get it. This is also a good sign, especially if Anderson returns to the team next year and continues to build his chemistry with Darnold.

Conclusions

After another conservative start, offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates allowed Darnold to air it out a bit more in the second half and, although he ended up with modest numbers, Darnold made enough big plays to lead the come-from-behind win.

Darnold completed 16 of 24 passes for his third-highest completion percentage of the season. In fact, this was only the second time he had completed over 60 percent of his passes since Week 2. It's unlikely he's going to have any games where he puts up big numbers with the Jets' offense having struggled for most of the season. However, while he only ended up with 170 passing yards, a respectable 129 of those came after halftime.

It should also be noted that Darnold achieved this against one of the league's better defenses. The Bills entered Sunday's action as the No. 1 pass defense. If Darnold is going to follow this up with another good game on Saturday, he's going to have to do so against a Texans team that isn't ranked as highly from a statistical standpoint but possesses plenty of talent and is sure to look to put Darnold under heavy pressure.

After the Jets fell 30-14 to the Patriots, Luke Falk's assessment of his debut start as an NFL quarterback was blunt.

The second-year pro put the blame on himself after he completed 12 of 22 passes (54.5 percent) for 98 yards and an interception during Sunday's Week 3 defeat to New England (3-0) at Gilette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachussetts.

The way New York (0-3) remained winless as its offense -- unable to put points on the board while the defense scored both touchdowns via cornerback Arthur Maulet's end zone fumble recovery and safety Jamal Adams' 61-yard interception return -- searched for answers.

Crowder, Anderson react to loss 00:02:05
The offense was missing in action for most of the 30-14 loss. Anderson seemed particularly dejected when talking to Jeane Coakley.

The Jets lost 30-14 to the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon, as the offense struggled to do much of anything. In fact, the offense wasn't even responsible for the team's two touchdowns -- Arthur Maulet recovered a fumble in the end zone and Jamal Adams had an interception return for a touchdown.

Quarterback Luke Falk threw for only 98 yards and Le'Veon Bell had 18 carries for 35 yards, as the offense ended the game with 105 total yards. Naturally, head coach Adam Gase was upset with his offense's performance.

"It's brutal, I mean it's like one of those things, it's infuriating," Gase said. "Becuase youre watching the defense and special teams play as hard as they can and executing what they're being asked to do, and they're doing it well a majority of the game, and then we aren't holding our end on offense."

There's been nothing predictable about the Jets' season so far -- until now.

With three key defensive players out and a third-string quarterback who was on the practice squad having never played in an NFL game this time last week, the widely anticipated Patriots blowout was exactly what we saw on Sunday afternoon.

It didn't take long for any lingering hopes that the Jets might step up to make the game competitive against all odds to evaporate altogether, as Tom Brady drove the Patriots down the field for a touchdown on each of their first three drives. This gave New England a 20-point lead early in the second quarter.

If you thought Friday's news that the Patriots were releasing Antonio Brown would be the end of his time in the news cycle, you were sorely mistaken.

Rather than suiting up for New England to face the Jets on Sunday, the embattled wide receiver spent his morning on Twitter, where he announced he was not planning on playing in the NFL again, before turning his attention to former Steelers teammate Ben Roethlisberger, Patriots owner Robert Kraft and FS1's Shannon Sharpe

The Browns left last Monday's game at MetLife Stadium with a win over the Jets, but one of their star players also left with a hefty fine to pay.

Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, a former number one overall pick, was flagged twice during Monday's 23-3 win over the Jets for personal fouls committed against Jets QB Trevor Siemian.

The second foul, which occurred in the second quarter, resulted in Siemian suffering ligament damage in his ankle, ending his first season in New York shortly after it had begun. Garrett fell on Siemian with his full weight, and the quarterback's ankle got caught underneath him on the way down. The injury left the Jets with Luke Falk as their only healthy QB, who will now get the start this weekend in New England as Sam Darnold continues to recover from mono.

While Friday's release of Antonio Brown has dominated the headlines for the Patriots, what's gone somewhat under the radar is just exactly how shorthanded New England's offense could be on Sunday against the Jets due to injury.

Fullback James Develin, who the Patriots use heavily in their offense as a blocker and a short-distance runner, has been ruled out with a neck injury.

Sticking on the offensive side of the ball, tight ends Ryan Izzo (calf) and Matt LaCosse (ankle) are both listed as questionable. If both Izzo and LaCosse are sidelined, the Patriots would not have an active tight end, as veteran Ben Watson is suspended for the first four games due to testing positive for testosterone.

On Friday afternoon, the Jets announced their all-time team, as voted by the fans. The team will be recognized in a pregame ceremony before the home game against Dallas on Oct. 13th, as part of the celebrations marking the NFL's 100th season.

In an exercise such as this, it's impossible to please everyone. There have been so many great Jets players that there was bound to be some individuals to miss out, whom many would have considered worthy of a spot.

Two main factors always destined to skew the voting process were longevity and recency bias. In many cases, a player might have played at a high level and had memorable moments, but arguably wasn't a Jet long enough to warrant a spot over a loyal team member that suited up for a decade or more. Also, many younger voters may have voted for someone from their own era when there was a superior Jet at the same position in the past they didn't know about.

The Antonio Brown era in New England is over.

Just 11 days after the wide receiver signed a one-year deal with the Patriots following a quick falling-out with the Raiders, on Friday he was released once again.

"The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown. We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time," the Patriots said in a team-issued statement.

Four days after the Jets fell to 0-2 on Monday's 23-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns, New York's quick turnaround for Sunday's 1 p.m. road game against the Patriots presents the latest challenge for Adam Gase.

Before Friday's practice at The Atlantic Health Jets Training Center in Florham Park, New Jersey, the first-year head coach issued several injury updates ahead of the weekend's preparation for New England (2-0).

Among the notables, the Jets remain without veteran linebacker C.J. Mosley, but rookie defensive tackle Quinnen Williams continues to progress as Week 3 approaches.

The Patriots already figured to be among the Jets' toughest opponents, but the rich got richer in New England when wide receiver Antonio Brown fell into its lap from the Oakland Raiders at the start of the regular season.

After the Patriots signed Brown to a one-year deal worth $15 million Sept. 7 following his release, he sat out the team's 2019 opener Sept. 8 -- not like New England needed him for its 33-3 rout of the Pittsburgh Steelers -- but made a splash when he debuted Sept. 15 in Miami.

The Patriots (2-0) downed the Dolphins for a 43-0 shutout, fueled early by Brown, who had three of his four receptions on the opening drive, totaling 56 yards and a 20-yard touchdown from veteran quarterback Tom Brady.

With Sam Darnold missing his second consecutive game with mononucleosis and Trevor Siemian out the rest of the season due to ligament tears in his ankle that he suffered in Monday night's loss against the Browns, the Jets have turned to QB Luke Falk, who will make his first start of his career this Sunday afternoon. 

And what a game to make your first career start it will be, because not only are the Jets on the road, but they will be facing the reigning Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots in Foxborough.

Falk, taken with the 199th pick in the 2018 draft by the Titans, will be taking a similar start to his career as the pass thrower on the opposing sidelines--Tom Brady. Like Falk, Brady was also taken with the 199th pick in the draft, and also made his first career start in Foxborough, Mass--albeit in Foxboro Stadium, and not Gillette Stadium.

Trumaine Johnson has become a weight around the neck of the Jets defense, and his benching on Monday night likely was the beginning of his end. The 29-year-old cornerback likely won't be in the long-term plans, as the Jets continue rebuilding their defense.

But don't expect him to be replaced by Jalen Ramsey, who has asked the Jacksonville Jaguars to trade him. Johnson's albatross of a contract makes it very difficult for the Jets to do that.

That's the part that makes the latest mess with Johnson so bad -- the fact that he's only in Year 2 of a five-year, $72.5 million contract. He's already been paid more than $26 million, and he's costing the Jets $12 million against the salary cap this season. And the way his deal is structured, they might have to endure his presence on the roster for another two years, at least.

Jamal Adams not happy with fine 00:01:46

Jamal Adams might be done calling out the NFL on his social media, but he isn't done taking jabs after his recent fine by the league.

Adams was docked $21,000 by the league for his rougher the passer penalty on Baker Mayfield on Monday night, a call he publicly disagreed with on his Instagram where he said the league is a "joke." 

When speaking with reporters on Thursday, Adams made sure to keep it clean (he said it was "Bull----" in the post) because his mother told him to calm down. However, he did address the play again, and confirmed that he will be appealing the fine.

Jets QB Sam Darnold has remained out due to mono. Due to the nature of the illness, a clear target date for his potential return has been hard to nail down. Here are the latest updates...


Sept. 18, 3:44 AM:

The biggest issue with Darnold's illness is the fact that the possibility of an enlarged spleen could be a side effect. Well, that's exactly what Darnold has. 

He confirmed it during his press conference on Wednesday, saying it "needs to get a little smaller for me to play." An enlarged spleen is a serious matter, especially for someone playing a contact sport. Darnold can participate in non-contact activities, but if the enlarged spleen doesn't subside, he won't be able to go out there. So time will tell.

Jamal Adams may have scared Jets fans Tuesday when he took the team out of his Instagram and Twitter bios. This day and age, that's a main cause for speculation that a player isn't happy with his current situation. 

Adams, though, went on WFAN afterward and didn't say he was displeased with the Jets. Instead, he brushed off the questions about his social media move. 

"It's social media. At the end of the day, it's outside noise. I'm not focused on that," Adams said when Maggie Gray asked what we should make of the changes.

Before answering questions during his Wednesday press conference, Jets head coach Adam Gase dished out some injury updates and rookie DT Quinnen Williams had the best one. 

Williams has been dealing with an ankle injury that kept him out of Monday Night Football against the Browns. However, Gase says everything is trending in the right direction for him to return to practice on Thursday. 

Gase noted that Williams, the team's No. 3 overall draft pick back in April, won't be at practice today. Instead, he'll be working on his strength and conditioning, but he's expecting him to be back out there with the team tomorrow. That's big news as the Jets will want as many of their best players on the field as possible against the Patriots this week.

As rookie quarterback Daniel Jones takes over the Giants' offense for 17th-year veteran Eli Manning, a decision announced Tuesday by New York, the crosstown starter has an idea of what the transition will be like.

Just last year, fresh off the Jets making him the No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft, Sam Darnold ascended to the top of the depth chart and began his rookie season with the Jets as the team's starter.

Now in his second year with New York while he works back from mononucleosis, Darnold understands that the news can be tough for Manning to process, but the development should only help Jones as the Giants move forward.

Jets QB Trevor Siemian, who exited Monday night's loss against the Browns due to an ankle injury, is out for the season, head coach Adam Gase said on Tuesday.

Gase said the injury was ligament related and that there was no break, adding that Siemian will likely need surgery.

While the Jets are now without starter Sam Darnold and their backup, Gase said Tuesday that the team will go with Luke Falk as their starter until Darnold returns -- with the team looking to acquire a backup.

The Jets' quarterback situation after Trevor Siemian went down with an injury on Monday night got even worse, as Sam Darnold is still fighting mono. That paired with other issues the team is facing has sportsbooks predicting their next contest to be a blowout. 

The Jets are set to travel to Foxborough to face the 2-0 Patriots this Sunday, and New England is an obvious favorite to stay undefeated in this one. But with Luke Falk set to start for the Jets and the Patriots being absolutely dominant in their first two games, the spread is massive. 

The Patriots are giving 22.5 points to the Jets, according to multiple sportsbooks. That spread is unheard of for an NFL game, but with the Pats outscoring their opponents 76-3 so far this season, paired with the Jets' struggles, many believe it isn't far-fetched.
