Week 17 at New England Patriots
Sam Darnold will get his last start of his up-and-down rookie season. He is coming off one of his best performances last Sunday when he threw for 341 yards, a career high, and three touchdown passes. It was a shootout with Green Bay and Darnold was up to task matching veteran Aaron Rodgers.
Darnold will face the Patriots for the first time in his career. He missed the first meeting this season. New England is ranked 20th in aFPA to quarterbacks so there is some possibility for success for Darnold. But overall, we think the Pats will play to win and shut down the Jets offense so keep Darnold on the bench for Week 17 on the road.
