GOOD: Sam Darnold's Immune System

The winless New York Jets went Mono e Mono with the much more favoured Dallas Cowboys this week and managed to pull off quite an upset to get their first win of the season. All thanks to the now healthy Quarterback Sam Darnold.

In week 2 Sam Darnold was ruled out indefinitely with a case of Mononucleosis. Yep, the 22-year-old had Mono aka 'The kissing disease'. The unexpected diagnoses de-railed the start of the Jets season, losing every single game while Darnold was out.

Now healthy and cleared by doctors, Darnold wasted no time by throwing for 338 yards and a Touchdown in the 24-22 win. I'm not sure there is a more important player for a team in the NFL than what Sam Darnold is for the Jets.

The NFL has never been more accessible in Australia than it is today, made possible by Kayo and you can watch the season unfold and have two weeks free trial by clicking here now.

They are absolutely hopeless without him. Next week against the Patriots will be a massive test for Darnold and his Jets, however after that game their schedule becomes much more favourable.

It's most likely too late for the Jets this season, as they will probably reflect on this season and say "what if?"
