    The Jets gave Sam Darnold the start at quarterback in Washington on Thursday night and the rookie played the entire first half before giving way to Teddy Bridgewater.

    Darnold’s night wound up covering three possessions and ended with his first interception of his NFL career. Washington defensive back Deshazor Everett tipped a pass inteded for Jermaine Kearse into the hands of defensive back Troy Apke to end a second quarter drive that had moved into the red zone.

    Darnold was 8-of-11 for 62 yards overall and led the Jets to a field goal on their second possession. He went 5-of-5 for 45 yards on that scoring drive Paul Hornung Jersey , but the first two drives ended with third down sacks and one of them may have been attributable to Darnold holding the ball too long against the Washington defense.

    Jets coach Todd Bowles told Lisa Salters of ESPN that the rookie’s performance was “not bad.” Bridgewater’s performance will likely have some bearing on how “not bad” helps or hurts Darnold’s bid for the starting job.

    In what will come as no surprise, since the sides weren’t talking, DeMarcus Lawrence will play 2018 under the franchise tag.

    Lawrence signed the $17.143 million tag in March with no substantive discussions about a long-term deal Rafael Bush Jersey , Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

    It gives the Cowboys a chance to make sure Lawrence isn’t a one-season wonder, and Lawrence a chance to live up to his proclamation that he expects to “break the bank” in free agency next year. It also gives both sides a chance to see what happens with the defensive line market, with Jadeveon Clowney Geoff Swaim Jersey , Aaron Donald and Khalil Mack also seeking long-term deals.

    Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, citing a source, said Lawrence will not play on a second consecutive tag in 2019. The Cowboys are certain to franchise Lawrence again at $20.5 million if he has another big year and they don’t reach a deal. So this would seem to put the team on notice that Lawrence will not play the part of good solider again next offseason in the absence of a long-term deal.

    Lawrence ;, 26, made only nine sacks his first three seasons while missing 16 games with injuries and a four-game suspension. He had 14.5 sacks last season.

    The Cowboys have had three other players play under the franchise tag: Flozell Adams in 2002, Ken Hamlin in 2008 and Anthony Spencer in 2012 and ’13.
