Darnold: Jets can be 'unstoppable as an offense'

  Darnold: Jets can be 'unstoppable as an offense' Sam Darnold is riding high after the New York Jets upset the Dallas Cowboys in his return from mononucleosis. With tight end Chris Herndon close to returning from a hamstring injury, the Jets' offense will soon be at full strength for the first time this season. "Right now, we're just missing Chris," Darnold told reporters, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. "Once all the guys are back together, I think we're unstoppable as an offense - or we can be."Darnold added: "It's just up to us and how we execute. It's really up to us how many points we score, I think. I think we're capable of so many points.

Game Observations: Patriots find second-half stride, dispatch Redskins 33 -7. The Texans are one of four teams against which the Patriots own an undefeated regular season home record (5- 0 ). The Patriots are 5- 0 against Baltimore, 4- 0 against Chicago and 4- 0 against Jacksonville.

BOX SCORE: PATRIOTS 33, JETS 0

They also swept the two-game season series against their AFC East rivals for the fourth straight year, outscoring the Jets (1-5) 63-14 in the two meetings this year.

And, the top-ranked Patriots defense was a big reason in this one.

Darnold was the AFC offensive player of the week after leading New York to a 24-22 win over Dallas last Sunday in his return from missing three games with mononucleosis.

He was miserable against New England, finishing 11 of 32 for 86 yards and a 3.6 quarterback rating.
