Sam Darnold admits he is ‘seeing ghosts’ against Patriots
Sam Darnold had a rough time facing the No. 1 defense in the NFL on Monday night and even admitted he was “seeing ghosts.”
Darnold was wearing a microphone for ESPN’s telecast of the game between the New York Jets and New England Patriots. The network showed a clip during the first half of Darnold sitting on the bench after a possession and admitting he was “seeing ghosts.”
Sam Darnold is mic’d up and he came to the sidelines and said, “I’m seeing ghosts.”

The stats seemed to match his admission. Darnold was just 6/13 for 34 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in the first half. He also lost a fumble.
Darnold’s Jets went into halftime down 24-0 and struggled to move the ball against the Patriots’ top defense. Maybe this brought Darnold back down to earth after he found Dallas’ defense so easy.
