Marshall Takes His Football Back

Marshall’s first game as a member of the Jets.

This is not a play that is going to be remembered well after the game. Marshall isn’t making an Odell Beckham Jr.-esque one-handed catch. He is not nimbly getting two feet down in the corner of the end zone.

But what he is doing is showing the will, determination and ultra-competitiveness that he exhibited throughout his Jet career.

Most receivers in this situation would simply make the tackle and get off the field. Not Marshall.

This play perfectly encapsulates the relationship between quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and Marshall as well. No matter how many mistakes Ryan Fitzpatrick committed while under center, Marshall would always be there to hide his deficiencies.
