Now that Bill Belichick has completed the quarterback tomato can portion of the Patriots schedule, the ruler of the most annoying empire in NFL history will face a daunting test against the Jets on Monday night.
Sam Darnold presents an altogether different challenge for a statistically scary defense that has erased signal callers with relative ease so far. New England leads the league in total defense, scoring defense, third-down defense, yards per play, first downs allowed and passes defensed.
Belichick’s defense is allowing a league-low 42.6 passer rating, the best mark through six games in 23 years. The Hoodie’s group is second in sacks and passing yards, too.
But the Patriots aren’t going up against Ryan Fitzpatrick, Josh Rosen, Luke Falk, Josh Allen, Colt McCoy or Daniel Jones this time. Darnold is the best quarterback New England has faced since Ben Roethlisberger in the season opener.
“Their defense is good. They have been all year,” Darnold said. “But just like any other team, they're not unbeatable. So, we just go out there, find the weakness in the defense and keep working it. That's what we're going to do on Monday night.”
