His 55.2 completion percentage is second-lowest in NFL among QBs who have thrown at least 130 passes. … Darnold leads all rookies with 1,705 yards passing and 11 TD passes.

He’s tied with Philadelphia’s Dallas Goedert for most touchdowns among rookie TEs with three. … Jets’ Andre Roberts leads NFL with punt return average of 18.1 yards. … New York had 207 yards of total offense last week, third-lowest total in coach Todd Bowles’ three-plus seasons. … Gase 20-20 in regular season at Miami. That’s same 40-game record as his predecessor, Joe Philbin. … Dolphins have been outgained by 590 yards. … In past three games, Miami has given up 600 yards rushing, average of 5.9 per play. During same stretch, opposing quarterbacks have thrown for 751 yards with 10 touchdown passes, one interception and passer rating of 143.9. … Miami leading rusher Frank Gore has 77 career touchdowns rushing, but none this year. Dolphins have three, more than only Jaguars. … Gore has 18,145 scrimmage yards and needs 46 to surpass Pro Football Hall of Famer Barry Sanders (18,190) for sixth-most in NFL history. … Jakeem Grant leads NFL with average of 32.3 yards on kickoff returns.
