The New York Jets open the season on the strength of a C.J. Mosley pick-6 after a Josh Allen throw bounced off of Cole Beasley’s hands.
EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ—Gregg Williams’s defense is off to a flying start in 2019.
C.J. Mosley opened the New York Jets scoring on the brand-new campaign with a pick-6 that deflected off of Cole Beasley’s hands.

After a somewhat shaky start that saw Josh Allen run the offensive from the line of scrimmage, a Jordan Jenkins strip-sack turned the ball over on the first drive of the game.
Then, a possession later, an Allen pass dropped right into the waiting arms of Mosley.
Mosley, 27, is a four-time Pro Bowl linebacker who signed a massive five-year, $85 million deal this past offseason with the Jets. The speed and smarts he brings to Williams’s defense is something the Jets haven’t employed in quite some time.
A year ago over 15 games, Mosley tallied 105 tackles, 0.5 sack, six tackles for loss and five pass deflections.
Unfortunately, Jets kicker Karre Vedvik missed the ensuing extra point as it hit the left goal post. The New York Jets lead the Buffalo Bills 6-0 after one quarter of play at MetLife Stadium.
