New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold scrambles for an incredible 46-yard touchdown against the Denver Broncos.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ—There wasn’t a more surprised individual in the building than the man himself. The moment Sam Darnold crossed the goal line, disbelief oozed from his eyes.

For a brief moment, the New York Jets quarterback turned into Steve Young.

Facing a third-and-7 situation, the struggling Jets signal-caller saw a free-runner coming at him up the gut. All he did was make him miss, get out of the pocket, juke another defender out of his shoes and dart for a 46-yard touchdown run to put his team on top on Thursday Night Football.

Yes, this is the Jets’ first lead of the season.

Darnold, 23, entered Week 4 with much to prove. His three-interception, two-pick-6 game against the Indianapolis Colts just four days ago left a lot to be desired. On Thursday night, he’s already looked much better, completing 2 of 4 for 16 yards over the first 10 minutes and change of the first quarter.

A Brandon McManus 40-yard field goal has put the Denver Broncos on the board. With four-and-a-half minutes to go in the first quarter, Sam Darnold (or Steve Young reincarnated) lead the Broncos by a score of 7-3.
