Sam Darnold: Record against winning teams

Sam Darnold is in a very odd place right now. He is a young quarterback who has shown some flashes. He is also on a team who has a chance to pick a new quarterback in a draft that is loaded with high quality quarterback prospects. It will be interesting to see if the Jets feel he has shown enough or if they move on from him already.

Let’s take a look at how many times the New York Jets won games against teams with a winning record with Sam Darnold as their starting quarterback.

I started to dive into this stat for every quarterback because the new hot argument is to say that a certain quarterback didn’t beat anyone good. I often see people use this argument to say players like Kirk Cousins and Matthew Stafford are not good and just put up empty stats.

First off and most importantly, quarterback wins are a team statistic. Secondly, very few quarterbacks in the NFL have a winning record against teams who finished the season above .500 in the league.
