New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold put up another on-the-run beauty, this time to Braxton Berrios, and Blewett’s Blitz breaks it down.
Well, the kid managed to do it yet again.
Avoiding pressure, breaking out of the pocket left (especially left) and throwing against his body while on the run is something New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold has no problem executing at times. Considering it’s not a common thing for a quarterback to pull off consistently, the idea Darnold throws these ropes from such tough spots is what provides everybody hope.
Darnold did it yet again, this time finding Braxton Berrios for a garbage-time score in the Jets 31-13 loss to the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday. A scramble drill that Berrios took full advantage of led to the team’s only touchdown of the game.
Blewett’s Blitz breaks down the SportsCenter highlight that has most Jets fans still believing in the kid in the face of major doubt:
The 0-2 Jets travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts in a Week 3 matchup that has to be called a “must-win” if the team has any designs of being a relevant team in 2020.
At 0-2, while looking like the worst team in the NFL over the first two weeks, Darnold’s third season hasn’t exactly started swimmingly. He’ll now look over on the other sideline at a veteran quarterback who’s done just about everything in this league except play in a Super Bowl.
It’ll be Sam Darnold and Philip Rivers. Hopefully for Jets fans, the youngster shocks the world with an exceptional performance against so many odds.
