The Sam Darnold Era began last week for the New York Jets (1-0) in Motown. Darnold and company prepare to welcome a fellow AFC East rival to the Meadowlands, as they host the Miami Dolphins (1-0) on Sunday afternoon.

What They Did Last Week:
Dolphins defeated the Tennessee Titans at home, 27-20.
Jets dismantled the Detroit Lions on the road, 48-17.
The Jets dominated Matt Patricia’s Lions in all three phases of the game, which included a Darron Lee interception return for touchdown – the Jets collected five interceptions in total, including four of Lions’ starting quarterback Matthew Stafford – and Andre Roberts’ punt-return touchdown.
Despite Darnold throwing a pick six on his first career NFL throw (Brett Favre says hello), he recovered nicely, finishing 16-for-20 on with 198 yards and two touchdowns, including a dime to Robby Anderson for 41 yards through the air for his first career score. Darnold also showed calm pocket awareness, and used his legs to make plays while keeping his eyes downfield.
In a game dominated by weather delays that went well over seven hours and was the longest game in NFL history, the Dolphins defeated the Titans. The Dolphins’ dominant player was wide receiver Kenny Stills, who caught four passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns. Up until this season, Stills has predominantly been used as a vertical threat on the outside, but may be the best of a weak crop of skill-position players.
Miami should have wide receiver DaVante Parker back in the fold to help Stills this week. After missing Week 1 with a finger injury, Parker was limited in practice until late this week.
New York gets a receiver back of their own, Jermaine Kearse. Kearse (abdomen) was inactive for Week 1, but practiced this week without any setbacks, and should be good to go when Miami rolls into town Sunday.
