It may only be the preseason, but Jets rookie QB Sam Darnold got his first touchdown out of the way.
The No. 3 overall pick looked great in his Jets debut as he showcased all the skills necessary to cap a drive with a touchdown. Darnold looked calm and collected in the pocket, as he avoided pressure with his feet and made smart throws.
And even though he should have secured his first touchdown pass on two separate downs, he finally linked up with Charles Johnson after escaping the pocket, and throwing a bullet on the run.
At the end of the first half, Darnold is 9-of-11 for 74 yards with his touchdown. It has been a solid debut from the rookie so far.
