At 6’4″, 230 lbs and with the speed of an Olympian, New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall is physically a man among boys, and he reminded the world of that fact in a dominating Monday Night Football performance against the reigning AFC South Champion Indianapolis Colts.
Underdogs in the game with the Colts as 6-point favorites, the Jets forced an incredible five turnovers of All-Pro QB Andrew Luck on the afternoon, one of which led to a Jets TD from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Eric Decker in the first quarter.
The Jets defense led by Darrelle Revis had absolutely no give for the better part of three straight quarters as the Colts were held scoreless for the first 45 minutes. The Jets would finish the game with 10 takeaways through the first two games of the season, the most by any team since the 1992 Steelers.
After allowing an Andrew Luck TD early in the fourth quarter that cut the Jets lead to just 10-7, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brandon Marshall went to work, hooking up on several completions including this beastly TD grab where Marshall dragged two Colts defenders across the scoring plane with him.
With the win, the NY Jets rise to 2-0 for the first time since 2011, and the defense is currently No. 1 in the league with just 17 points allowed.
The loss for the Colts drops the AFC South champs to 0-2 for the second year in a row. No team in NFL history has made the playoffs two years in a row when starting 0-2 both times.
