Murray Hurries Jets Over Pats

A brilliant performance by veteran running back, Latavius Murray (20 carries, 194 yards, 3 TDs) helped the Jets secure a victory at home in a tightly contested game vs the New England Patriots. Murray showed off his incredible speed and elusiveness picking up his longest runs of the season with runs of 56 and 87 yards, both of which went for touchdowns. The Patriots defense kept Kirk Cousins off balance early as they forced him into his first interception as a Jet, sacked him three times, and forced incompletions with jarring hits. But after some 2nd quarter adjustments, it was business as usual for Mr. Efficient. Cousin's would end the day 11 for 16, with one interception. Fatigued robbed him of a touchdown as a gassed Robby Anderson would get caught just shy of the end zone. The Jets didn't play their best game on defense, but played well enough. Newly appointed starting MLB Kevin Pierre-Louis showed off his amazing athleticism as he soared for his first interception of the year as the Patriots looked poised to score. Known more as a thumper, second MLB Preston Brown showed soft hands as he picked up his first interception of the year as well. SS Jamal Adams led all Jets with 7 tackles and a pick 6, and not to be out down, Buster Skrine chipped in recording his 10th interception of the season. Next week the Jets travel to the Music City to take on the Titans.
