Takeaways:

· The Jets defense registered three takeaways, including two fumble recoveries and an interception. The three takeaways matched their season-high established vs. BLT (10/23). All three takeaways resulted in Jets scores.

Fitzpatrick at Home:

  • Since 2015, QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown for at least two touchdown passes in 11 of his 13 starts at home, the second-highest number of games in the NFL during that timespan.
  • Fitzpatrick finished the game 20-of-30 for 210 yards and two touchdown, earning a passer rating of 109.0. The total marked the second time Fitzpatrick registered a quarterback rating of 100.0-or-higher in a home game this season (both starts).

In Tandem:

  • Running back Bilal Powell finished the game with 135 total scrimmage yards, including 122 rushing. Powell eclipsed 1,000 scrimmage yards for the season on a four-yard run in the first quarter, marking the first time he’s registered 1,000-or-more yards in a season for his career.
  • Powell’s 100-yard rushing game is his second of the season and third of his career. He rushed for a career-high 722 yards this season, besting his previous mark of 697 set in 2013.
  • Powell (1,110) and teammate Matt Forté (1,076) are the only pair of running backs this season to each record 1,000-or-more scrimmage yards. They became the first duo in team history to each eclipse 1,000 scrimage yards and the first tandem since TB running backs Doug Martin and Charles Sims in 2015.
  • Powell hauled in three receptions for 15 yards and one touchdown on Saturday, increasing his season reception total to 58. Powell currently ranks fourth in the NFL among all running backs. In addition, his reception total is the sixth-most by a Jets running back for a single season in team history.

Jalin Extends to the Endzone:

  • In the third quarter, Fitzpatrick found rookie WR Jalin Marshall for a six-yard touchdown to extend the Jets lead to 17-3. It was Marshall’s second receiving touchdown of the season.

Wilkerson Won’t Be Denied:

  • In the first quarter, DL Muhammad Wilkerson brought down E.J. Manuel for a loss of nine yards to improve his season sack total to 4.5.
  • Wilkerson’s 10.5 sacks at home over the last two seasons rank fourth among AFC defensive linemen.

Rookie Pickings:

  • Linebacker Jordan Jenkins registered the first fumble recovery of his career when he recovered an E.J. Manuel fumble following a LB Corey Lemonier strip sack for 12 yards. The takeaway led to a six-yard touchdown pass from Fitzpatrick to Marshall.

MetLife Monster:

  • Defensive linemen Sheldon Richardson forced and recovered a RB Jonathan Williams fumble in the third quarter, a play that led to a 36-yard field goal by K Nick Folk. It was Richardson’s first forced fumble of the season and his second fumble recovery.

Folk Lore:


  • K Nick Folk connected on all three of his field goal attempts, improving to 27-of-31 on the season. His 87.1 field goal percentage is the third-highest of his career, while his 27 field goals are his fourth-highest total in a season.
