EAST RUTHERFORD, NJLe’Veon Bell is officially back. Leading 8-0, the New York Jets workhorse back tallied the first touchdown of his Jets career on Sunday.

An excellent out-route at the goal line, while trailing a weapon, freed Bell for the score at the flag.

The touchdown put the Jets up 14-0, pending the ensuing try. Instead of kicking an extra point with Kaare Vedvik (who had already missed his first extra-point try and another field goal to boot), Gase opted for a two-point attempt.


Darnold to Bell also rang true on the two-point conversion.

The Bell touchdown happened a play after it looked like Darnold found Ryan Griffin for a score on 3rd-down. A read-option that looked to be a straight Darnold run turned into a wide-open score for Griffin in the flat.

After further review, the play was called back after Quincy Enunwa was called for offensive pass interference.

Bell is what we thought he was: a workhorse whose legs came into Week 1 completely fresh.

Early in the fourth quarter, Bell has 58 yards on the ground on 15 carries and 32 yards through the air on six receptions.

The Jets currently lead the Bills 16-3 with a little over 11 minutes in the fourth quarter.
