It was just another day at the office for the athletic marvel that is Brandon Marshall. In a historic win and an equally strong game for Marshall, he redeemed a first half blunder to dominate Washington and lead the New York Jets to their fourth win of the season.
The Jets were smooth offensively as Chris Ivory had a big game running the ball.
But the Achilles heel of the Jets reared its head early as WR Eric Decker fumbled the ball on the first offensive play of the game. Brandon Marshall would fumble the ball in the first half as well, and a Ryan Fitzpatrick INT sent the Jets into the first half down 13-10.
But in the second half the Jets got a major boost with All-Pro CB Darrelle Revis, who intercepted Washington QB Kirk Cousins early in the third quarter. Fitzpatrick would score a TD on an 18-yard run to take a lead they would not relinquish for the rest of the game.
It was Marshall, however, who had the play of the game, making up for his earlier fumble with a finger-tip catch off of his shoe, then shoving two defenders back and charges into the endzone for a game-sealing TD,
Washington would score just once the rest of the game.
The win gives the Jets a 4-1 record – matching their win total from the season before.
In the win, Brandon Marshall also became the first Jets receiver since the 1960s to record four-straight games with over 100 receiving yards.
Marshall is continuing his revenge tour against his doubters – and so far, he’s winning.
