Darnold is the first Jet to win AFC Offensive Player of the Week since running back Isaiah Crowell did it in Week 5 last season. In that game, Crowell rushed for 219 yards and a touchdown in a win over the Denver Broncos.

The Jets' next game is Monday night at home against the New England Patriots.
