New York Jets Blew Past Tennessee Titans, Keeping Playoff Contentions Alive
The New York Jets didn’t waste any time blowing out a young Tennessee Titans team 30-8 to keep playoff contentions alive.
The month of December has never been good for the Jets. They seem to always fold and as some fans would say based on the team name, “Just End The Season”. But they are playing their best football, hitting their stride at the right time to possibly secure a wild card spot.
The win puts them on a three game winning streak since 2011 when former Jet Mark Sanchez was the quarterback. Fitzpatrick had a solid game completing 21 of 36 passes for 263 yards and three touchdowns. Each touchdown was thrown to Eric Decker, Bilal Powell and Brandon Marshall. At the end of the second quarter, Marshall ran on a 69 yard touchdown due to a blown coverage by the Titans. The media looked at this as a trap game for the Jets, but they did their job showing no mercy.
That’s the media talking, it’s a trap game,” defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson said. ”We’re taking it one game at a time and looking past no one.
In two quarters, Jets dominated total yards over the Titans: 327-72. Overall they had 439 yards compared to the Titan’s 292 yards. Most of these yards go to the dominance of Fitzpatrick. He has 3,129 yards passing so far for the season. In three games Fitzpatrick has nine touchdowns for 930 yards with no interceptions. His teammates see the results and hope it continues that trend moving forward.
This guy just works hard and he’s had an interesting career,” Marshall said. ”He deserves it. We just want to continue to rally around him and let him lead us.
