Jets Pummel Washington, Improve To 4-1
Chris Ivory rushed for 146 yards and a score, while Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two touchdowns and ran for another as the New York Jets knocked off Washington 34-20 at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, improving to 4-1 on the season.
New York was able to shake-off three first half turnovers, which led to three Redskins' scoring drives at a 13-10 lead Washington lead at the half. But, the Jets opened the third with a field goal drive, followed by three consecutive touchdowns.
Brandon Marshall had seven catches for 111 yards and a touchdown, and Erick Decker had four grabs for 59 yards and a score. Each lost a fumble in the first half. Washington's Bashaud Breeland recovered both fumbles, and had Fitzpatrick's lone interception. The Buffalo QB finished with 253 yards in the air and 31 on the ground.
Kirk Cousins was held to 196 passing yards on 25 of 43 attempts, one touchdown and two interceptions. The Redskins rushed for just 34 yards as a team.
The Jets are at New England next Sunday. The Redskins (2-4) host Tampa Bay.
