  • Since 2011, Forté has rushed for the second-most yards (2,983) in road contests in the NFL behind only LeSean McCoy (3,392).

Powell Power :

  • RB Bilal Powell recorded a season-high 35-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. It marked the longest run by a Jet this season and the second-longest of Powell’s career. His last rushing touchdown came in Week 15 of the 2015 season. Powell now has eight career rushing touchdowns.

Consecutive Catches :

  • WR Brandon Marshall extended his streak of consecutive games with a catch to 152 on a 29-yard completion from QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in the third quarter. Marshall’s streak is the second-longest active streak in the NFL (Larry Fitzgerald).

Enunwa Finds the End Zone:

  • Enunwa hauled in a game-long 57-yard reception in the second half. He now has two catches of 55-or-more yards on the year, becoming the first Jets receiver since Brandon Marshall (2015) to record two such receptions in a single season.

Fitzpatrick Finishes Strong:

  • Following a slow start in the first half, Fitzpatrick finished the game 16-of-34 for 228 yards and one touchdown. Fitzpatrick completed 13-of-20 passes for 198 yards and one touchdown in the second half, including a 147-yard passing performance in the third quarter alone, the most he’s thrown for in a third quarter in his career and the most since Week 12 of the 2010 season (141).
