The ball sailed over Sam Darnold’s head and into the end zone. The New York Jets’ quarterback, the 22-year-old this team is resting all its future hope on, turned around and looked at the ball but made no effort to run after it. He then stared back at the line of scrimmage in disbelief as defenders ran past him.
A moment later, offensive lineman, Brian Winters was yelling at Darnold, who apparently had missed the signal that the ball was supposed to be snapped.
The Jets suffered one of their worst losses in franchise history Sunday, falling 26-15 to the Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium.
