The New York Jets hoped to see two things

     from rookie quarterback Sam Donald in his return from missing three games with a right foot injury: health and progress.Mission accomplished Los Angeles Chargers Womens Hoodie , with a victory thrown in.Darnold, the third overall selection in this year's draft, showed poise, creativity and, yes, some guts after getting dinged early in the 27-23 win at Buffalo on Sunday. He left for a short period in the first half, then returned to show the Jets (4-9) some of what they believe he will bring to a team seeking a franchise quarterback for decades.Running back Elijah McGuire scored on a fourth-and-goal run from the 1 with 1:17 remaining to cap a drive during which Darnold completed three of five passes for 52 yards. He showed his deft touch on a 37-yard pass to Robby Anderson, who made an over-the-shoulder catch up the right sideline."It was a good play (to Anderson)," coach Todd Bowles said Monday, when the players were off after snapping a five-game slide. "He had his eyes downfield the whole time. You won't make a living doing that, but you got to be a football player at times, too. The play broke down and he was good at making the play when it broke down."That wasn't the only time Darnold showed some good stuff, as well as a little rust from the layoff."I saw progress before he got hurt, but obviously with a win that helps everything," Bowles said. "There's still some things he's got to work on. Also Womens Customized Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys , we can't have turnovers down there at the end of the field and give up points. But he came back and made some plays that didn't faze him and that was good to see from a poise standpoint."Darnold finished 16 of 24 for 170 yards with a 7-yard touchdown to Anderson and an interception. He entered the game with 14 picks, and chilly, often windy Orchard Park, New York, is not a fun place to play in December, particularly for a California guy.No matter. Darnold did just about everything the Jets could have sought down the stretch Sunday."It's great for his first game back," Bowles said. "Obviously he was confident before the fourth quarter comeback. But it just helps him, it just helps him be himself a little more, which he's comfortable with being anyway. But that's really all it does for him."Bowles might not be around for Darnold's future development; few if any current NFL coaches are on a hotter seat. New York has had plenty of QBs who were supposed to be a building block, going back to 2000 and Chad Pennington, then Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith.Judging Darnold's success will come in upcoming years, of course. For now, the Jets will settle for moving forward a bit."We don't think it was that difficult," Bowles said of Darnold stepping back in. "He had two full weeks of practice. He looked good in practice and felt good. Once you start playing, you just go with the flow of the game and the game felt good to him Authentic Derwin James Jersey , it seemed. He just played football."NOTES: Bowles had no update on running back Isaiah Crowell, who left the Buffalo game in the second quarter with a shoulder injury. ... The coach had high praise for his special teams units, particularly kick returner Andre Roberts. He had 86- and 51-yard returns. "You can't say enough about the guy. He's ready all the time, he's durable, he's tough and he gets nicked up and he keeps going. You just don't notice him until he makes a play, but he does that every single day." Coach Sean McDermott believes the Buffalo Bills gained something from enduring their second-most lopsided loss in franchise history.And he's not yet ready to make a change at quarterback.After making the playoffs for the first time in 17 seasons last year, the Bills have serious issues after Sunday's 47-3 loss at Baltimore.On Monday, McDermott praised his team's effort and intensity in the opener, while acknowledging the Bills need to perform better in all areas."We'll learn from that tape," McDermott said. "I'm convinced of that."McDermott declined to indicate whether he will make a switch at quarterback from opening day starter Nathan Peterman to rookie Josh Allen for Sunday's home game against the Los Angeles Chargers."We're going to continue to evaluate where we are, dotting the I's and crossing the T's, and taking it one step at a time," McDermott said.Peterman barely made it out of the third quarter in his third career start. He was 5 of 18 passing for 24 yards with two interceptions and a quarterback rating of 0.0 before getting pulled with the Bills trailing 40-0. The Bills did not gain a first down in the first half with Peterman at quarterback."This is a quarterback-driven league and I thought there were times where we did some things that were on target, and some times where we weren't on target," McDermott said. "We have to get better in every area at what we are doing http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/derwin-james-jersey, not just the quarterback position."Peterman won the preseason competition with Allen, the quarterback Buffalo traded up to draft seventh overall out of Wyoming, and veteran AJ McCarron, who has since been traded to the Raiders.If Peterman hangs on to the starting job, he'll have to face the Chargers defense that intercepted him five times in the first half of his first career start last November.McDermott's decision to bench starter Tyrod Taylor in favor of Peterman last year nearly derailed the Bills' season after a promising start. But Taylor rallied the Bills to a 9-7 finish and they beat out the Ravens for the final AFC playoff spot."You saw what we did with some of those moments last year," McDermott said. "We learned from those and I'm convinced and confident that our team will continue to learn from this experience."Taylor was traded to Cleveland in the offseason to clear the way for the Bills' young quarterbacks.Allen was marginally better than Peterman against the Ravens. He completed 6 of 15 passes for 74 yards, ran for 26 yards and guided the Bills on their only scoring drive.McDermott has repeated throughout the preseason that the Bills wish to take a patient approach in developing Allen."There's a lot of things that go into that decision," McDermott said. "It's not just as simple as some might think. There's a lot of hands in that jar."Buffalo's rebuilt offensive line struggled to protect either quarterback, allowing six sacks.The Bills' 153 yards were the fewest they've had in a game since gaining 145 in a 40-7 loss at Chicago on Oct. 8, 2006.The Bills gave up touchdowns on all six of the Ravens' drives into the red zone. They allowed 26 first-half points, more than they allowed in the first half of all but one game last season, trailing only the 37 points allowed in the loss to the Chargers."That's part of the journey on the way to success," McDermott said. "It's never a straight line. It's never as clean as people think it is, and it's something that we have to continue to work through." NFL Outlet
