The New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys clash in Week 6 of the 2019 NFL season at MetLife Stadium Sunday afternoon.

Welcome to the newest opening weekend in the land of the New York Jets. With franchise quarterback Sam Darnold back from his bout with mononucleosis, Adam Gase and company have a new lease on life.

The challenge, of course, isn’t a pushover.

The 3-2 Dallas Cowboys stroll into town an angry bunch. Losers of their last two (New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers), Dak Prescott’s squad looks to right the ship against a winless Jets (0-4) club.

While Darnold’s return brings sunny skies, the injury report saddens the mood quite a bit.


The inactives for Sunday include C.J. Mosley, Henry Anderson, Nate Hairston and Kelechi Osemele.

For Dallas, both offensive tackles will be out of action.

Fortunately for Dallas, if there was ever a team to face with both offensive tackles injured, it’s the Jets, who don’t pose a big-time threat on the edge.

Kickoff from North Jersey comes your way at 4:25 p.m. ET and can be seen on CBS.
