Sam Darnold Cleared to Return to New York Jets Lineup

With the Packers off to a 4-1 start, there's not much to quibble about. The only carry under 11 yards in that span was a 3-yard score.

Jason Garrett started the year 3-0, but has dropped 2 straight games. He threw for 175 yards and a touchdown in that game. Plus, what does the future hold for Brett Maher and should Dak Prescott be getting blamed for the Cowboys' problems.

Dak Prescott #4 of the Dallas Cowboys in action against the Miami Dolphins in the third quarter at AT&T Stadium on September 22 in Arlington, Texas.
