Sam Darnold Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week


Quarterback Sam Darnold was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week following his performance in the Jets' 24-22 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

The second-year signal-caller completed 71.9% of his passes (23-for-32) for 338 yards, three yards shy of tying his career high, two touchdowns and one interception for a 117.6 passer rating. The award comes following the 22-year-old's first game back from a bout with mono that caused his to miss three games.

Darnold is also a finalist for the FedEx Air Player of the Week for his efforts during Week 6. To vote for the USC product, you can visit or the NFL Twitter page. Voting will conclude Thursday Oct. 17 at 3 p.m. ET and the winner will be announced later that afternoon.
