Darnold sees 'ghosts' in scary showing on 'MNF'

Buffalo's defense, which is on par with the Patriots', held Darnold to just 175 yards of passing and NY was only able to manage 16 points on the day. "After the third of his five turnovers in the game, the Jets" frustrated quarterback was sitting on the sideline in the second quarter when he made his comment that quickly went viral on social media after it aired.

Darnold was mic'd up on "Monday Night Football" amid his struggle against the Patriots defense, which led to the comment being shown to millions of viewers. If you asked me right now based off what I've seen in the first seven weeks, it'd be a no-brainer. It bothers me. It disturbs the organization. In week one the Patriots played the Steelers who at the time had Ben Roethlisberger.

An NFL Films representative - not ESPN - reportedly decides what audio gets aired during the "MNF" broadcast, without ESPN or the Jets signing off.

"You're never anticipating something like that happening", Gase said. But I think it's just a testament to how well we're playing, to be honest.

Thanks to McCourty's latest interception, the Patriots now have a whopping 15 picks through the team's first seven games of the 2019 regular season.

Darnold had little time as the Patriots forced him into bad - and often ugly - throws.

Before Darnold was diagnosed with mononucleosis this season, he played in the Jets' opening day loss to the Bills at home. Siemian left that game in the second quarter with a season-ending ankle injury.
