The New York Jets are… winning? Thanks to a 50-yard pitch and catch between quarterback Joe Flacco and wide receiver Breshad Perriman, the winless Jets currently lead the rival New England Patriots late in the first half.
With Flacco currently under center as the team’s regular starting quarterback in Sam Darnold is once again nursing a lingering injury, the former Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos signal caller has looked quite impressive against New England. After leading the Jets to a field goal on the team’s first drive of the game, Flacco then found Perriman way down field to help New York find the end zone for the first time in Week 9.
With the opposing quarterback in Patriots newcomer Cam Newton once again finding the end zone via the ground game to put New England on the board, the Jets presently lead the way by the score of 10-7 with less than 10 minutes remaining in the second quarter.
