Jets’ Sam Darnold gives up a safety on objective

"Obvisouly when we go back and look at this, he's not going to be happy", Adam Gase said after the game. And that's when he uttered two words he will probably come to regret.

You can't make this stuff up.

"I think, for me, when I talk to the coaches, I just got to be straight up", Darnold said.

It felt like the game really took place nearly entirely in the first half, and yet the Jets offense was held to 65 total yards. As someone who has the Patriots defense in Fantasy, I'm inclined to agree. After picking up two first downs in four plays, the Patriots converted on three consecutive third-and-longs, with Brady finding rookie wideout Jakobi Meyers for a nine-yard gain; Super Bowl MVP receiver Julian Edelman on the receiving end of a 14-yard pass on 3rd & 10; and a Ben Watson 10-yard reception on 3rd & 5.

Tom Brady was Tom Brady, New England's defense played lights out and Sam Darnold had a disappointing follow up after returning as the Jets quarterback a week ago.

Even off the field, Darnold wasn't having the best of times at MetLife Stadium during the contest.

The cameras showed Darnold and he kept the miserable outing simple when unknowingly on film.

Perhaps one of the most weird parts of the game was when Darnold went to the sideline and said he was "seeing ghosts".

Whether they were ghosts, boogeymen or Patriots dressed in white, the Jets quarterback was too often throwing to the wrong team.

They will now need to regroup as they get set for back-to-back road games, before they host the Battle for NY against the Giants.

Twitter reacted just as you'd expect, referencing and meming every ghostly reference short of Casper the Friendly Ghost.
