New York Jets wide receiver Jalin Marshall came up clutch against the Buffalo Bills to receive the second touchdown of his very young NFL career.
The New York Jets are not in contention for a playoff spot while facing the Buffalo Bills in their week 17 matchup, but that does not mean they aren’t giving it their all.
With New York up by just seven with four minutes left to go in the third quarter, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a bullet to Jalin Marshall who stretched as far as he could in order to get the six points. This was just the second touchdown of the rookie’s career since arriving from Ohio State.
The last time the 21-year old saw action on the field was on November 27 against the New England Patriots, which goes to show how he can be counted on when called upon in any spot.
The late third quarter touchdown put New York up by 14 points with a very short amount of time remaining from their very disappointing season. However, the future looks much more promising for the Jets and fans should look forward to the team’s 2017 campaign.
