Adam Gase’s New York Jets have fallen behind in all three of their opening games and entered their Thursday night clash against the Denver Broncos on the back of a 0-3 record. However, Vic Fangio’s Denver Broncos were not doing great themselves. The Orange Crush is on a three-game losing streak at the moment. They’ve been hit with major injuries to defensive star Von Miller and Pro Bowl wide receiver, Courtland Sutton.

Fans did not expect much from either team heading into this fixture. However, promising Jets quarterback, Sam Darnold, quickly grabbed headlines with a stellar rushing touchdown in the first quarter.

The legendary LeBron James is an avid NFL fan. He supports the Cleveland Browns team led by Baker Mayfield.

Darnold’s first-quarter effort impressed the three-time NBA Championship winner.

Even Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, was surprised by Darnold’s run. He engaged with LeBron on Twitter while talking about the same play. LeBron and the Lakers are playing the NBA Finals in Orlando against Erik Spoelstra’s Miami Heat and lead the seven-game series by a 1-0 margin.
