“Yeah, you know, I mean, I have social media,” Darnold told reporters. “I’ve seen some of the things, but … Yeah, we’ve got a game to win this week and that’s all we’re worried about.”
Darnold tried to put the focus back on the task at hand Sunday.
“For me, it’s out of my control. I’m here to do my best and help this team win games,” he said.
Darnold has 6,681 passing yards, 39 touchdown passes and 32 interceptions in 30 career games. Darnold missed three games last season and led the team to seven wins to salvage a 7-9 season.
The pressure was on Darnold coming into the season but with injuries in the receiving corps and what appeared to be overall uncertainty for the offense, the entire team has struggled. New York is 0-6 this season and has Buffalo Bills coming to town Sunday.
Lawrence is expected to forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft. He’s been the best quarterback prospect in college football since he came onto the scene in his freshman year.
