Yes, it was im­pres­sive. Jets rookie QB Sam Darnold tossed a Pick-6 on his first NFL pass 20 sec­onds into the game and then pro­ceeded to pick apart the Lions on Mon­day night when he out­played Matthew Stafford, com­plet­ing 16 of 21 passes for 198 yards and two TDs in a shock­ing 48-17 win over Detroit. He helped the Jets set a fran­chise record for points on the road, sur­pass­ing the 47 points they scored in 1967 against the Bos­ton Patriots. With that we were all set to pounce against the Fly­boys off a record-set­ting per­for­mance un­til our re­search de­part­ment laid per­haps the ugli­est stat of the week on us: Mi­ami brings a road mark into the con­test in be­tween home games. Talk about let­ting the air out of the bal­loon. In ad­di­tion, the Dolphins are 1-6-2 ATS the last eight games in this se­ries. Mean­while, it took 7 hours and 10 min­utes to play the Ti­tans, but the wait was worth it for the vic­tory-starved Fish. Hav­ing QB Ryan Tan­ney­hill back is a bless­ing as he is 8-1 SU in his last nine starts. With a hand­ful of games be­ing over-re­acted to by the odds­mak­ers based on open­ing week re­sults, this is one were forced to let go. And we don’t like it one damn bit.
