Coach Todd Bowles, commenting for the first time on Darron Lee's four-game suspension for a substance-abuse violation, called it "a great disappointment." He said they had an inking on Thursday, then found out on Friday. "He made a big mistake," Bowles said. "Time will tell whether he'll learn from it or not." Neville Hewitt (seven tackles, 0.5 sack) and Kevin Pierre-Louis (one forced fumble) shared Lee's position.

LT Kelvin Beachum made a key block on Sam Darnold's scrambling TD pass, decking DT Kyle Williams. "That's an offensive lineman's dream, to have a shot like that," he said. Beachum also said it was a "special moment" for the entire OL, including backups Dakota Dozier and Brent Qvale, to be on the field for Eli McGuire's game-winning TD run.

Robby Anderson described his 7-yard TD catch from Sam Darnold, who scrambled 47 yards before unleashing a laser: "He was going to the right and I had to shake loose and find an area. Dude was holding me, so I had to knock him off from holding me. Thankfully, he found me and he put the ball right where it needed to be and we got six."

Coach Todd Bowles said Sam Darnold "played tough and gritty ... He was smiling and having fun. You like to see him when he's like that." Darnold injured his right foot — same foot that was strained a month ago — but this was a different injury, Bowles said. An in-game X-ray was negative and Darnold was cleared to return.

After dropping a pass in the first quarter of Sunday's game, Saquon Barley went over to the O-line. He told them: "That series is on me. I'm going to make up for that. I promise you guys." He had 153 yards rushing and a touchdown in the second quarter alone.

Ladies and gentlemen, Sam Darnold. He was brilliant in the fourth quarter, rallying the Jets to an improbable win and snapping a six-game losing streak. He was clutch, making all the big plays. This was the moment they had been waiting for from their young quarterback.

This was the ideal game for the Giants. Lean on Saquon Barkley (170 yards rushing). Work off the play-action. Eli Manning had three TDs on 22 pass attempts. Defense made plays (3 turnovers) and scored a TD for the third time in four weeks. It equaled a 40-16 demolition of the Redskins.

Saquon Barkley's 29.7 PPR fantasy points gave him an 11th game with at least 20 points this season. That's a new rookie record by any player at any position, breaking his tie with Eric Dickerson (1983).
