After a fourth-down stop, Jets coach Adam Gase capitalized on momentum over the Dallas Cowboys by calling a deep shot from his own 8-yard line. Anderson ran a stop-and-go on cornerback Chidobe Awuzie, whom the Jets had targeted in their game plan. Anderson broke free and Darnold hit him in stride at the 50 — and he was off to the house. It was the second-longest scoring pass; in 1985, Wesley Walker caught a 96-yarder from Ken O’Brien.

Returning from a five-week layoff because of a bout with mononucleosis, Darnold dazzled in the first half, throwing two touchdown passes and completing passes to seven different receivers.
