UPDATE: Welp, Sam Darnold has left the game late in the first quarter with an injury and is being evaluated in the locker room.
Insert your comments about Sam Vick! New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold got the team on the board to open their Week 4 Thursday Night Football contest with the Denver Broncos in fine fashion.
Denver successfully blitzed on the play, but Darnold broke the sack attempt and scrambled 46 yards for the score. It is actually the longest ever rushing touchdown by a Jets quarterback, according to Rich Cimini.
The Jets have their first lead of the season and it only took four games!
