Jets quarterback Sam Darnold is playing like a man possessed against the Browns on Sunday. He's actually playing like a man who doesn't want to have his team draft a quarterback.
Darnold led his team to a 13-3 halftime lead over the Browns and trucked Browns linebacker Malcolm Smith in the process.
Sure Smith gets credited with a tackle, but it's a tackle that should have him questioning his future in the sport.
Sam Darnold lowered the BOOM 😳 @nyjets

This is what wanting it more looks like. Instead getting blown up by a linebacker, who should have been fully erect at the thought of a free shot, Darnold ran right over him.
There will be no Trevor Lawrence welcome party in New York on Darnold's watch! Jets fans have to be thrilled.
