The only thing that would’ve made this headline better (as in, more ridiculous) is if it included a “BREAKING NEWS” banner:

22-year-old professional athletes — how do they work?
BREAKING NEWS: Sam Darnold is a 22 year old professional athlete https://t.co/F4waG6pl8z

He was celebrating the team’s 34-3 win over the Oakland Raiders:

Keep in mind, he did get to bed at a reasonable hour:
Oli Coleman is a creep and a half for writing this. 22 year old goes out after 3 game win streak and heads home at 1230 am?

And people have thoughts:
This is news?

I would never have done any of that at his age. And by any of that, I mean quarterback an NFL team to a victory. The rest of that stuff, you betcha.

I would expect nothing less from a 22 year-old NFL QB in NYC. Good for him. Broadway Joe would approve.

There were mono jokes, too (Darnold contracted mononucleosis earlier this season):
