Sam Darnold Says He’s ‘Seeing Ghosts’ Vs. Patriots, Twitter Goes Wild

What’s worse? Recovering from mononucleosis, or facing the New England Patriots defense?

Well, Sam Darnold is putting the question to the test Monday night.

Darnold missed the teams’ first matchup back in Week 4 when the Pats trounced all over the Jets in Foxboro. Heading into Week 7’s primetime matchup, there was much hype surrounding a revitalized Jets team that was coming off a dominant win over the Dallas Cowboys.

The hype did not last very long.

New England jumped all over the Jets early and often, taking a 24-0 lead into the half. Darnold was 6-for-13 in the half for 34 yards with two interceptions, including one to Devin McCourty.

ESPN mics caught the quarterback saying he’s “seeing ghosts” on the sideline. Twitter took the reins from there.
