The Jets offense and defense both played well and put up good stats.
It was surely the Jets best performance of the season, with the offense rolling up 400 yards for the first time.
QB Sam Darnold (19 of 30, 293 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT, 121.2 rating) was not spectacular, but he set a career-high for touchdowns and protected the ball outside of one terrible throw.
TE Ryan Griffin (5 catches, 109 yards, 1 TD) was Darnold’s favorite target. The running game was better than it has been, rushing for a season-high 115 yards.
Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins (19-of-35, 214 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT, 79.9 rating) looked confused by the Jets defense until he padded his stats in garbage time. The Jets sacked Haskins six times, three by safety Jamal Adams. They held Washington to 225 total yards and just 54 yards rushing. LB Neville Hewitt made his second interception of the year.
Yes, the Redskins are terrible, but give the Jets coaches credit for having their team ready and taking care of business against a bad team. Adam Gase had a strong plan on offense and Gregg Williams baffled Haskins on defense. Gase has kept the team together through a trying season and it is still playing hard for him.
