Steve Tichenor From MetLife Stadium 2:40pm
As I mentioned in my opening article, if you open a hole for Bilal Powell he’ll get you some yards. That’s exactly what he did in the first half rushing for 120 yards on 8 carries. Granted the Jags gave up on the play where Powell got off the turf and ran for 75 yards but credit him for a heads up play. The Jets could have gone into the half with the lead after a brilliantly timed fake punt but Catanzaro missed the 45 yard field goal.
And as I write this, the Jets rookie RB Elijah McGuire just ran for a 69 yard TD. The Jets are soaring on the ground today!
