Oh, that’s right the Jets have tight ends this season. Austin Seferian-Jenkins proved to not only be a reliable target catching a team high six passes but showed his ability to be a threat in the red zone.
On a first and goal play Seferian-Jenkins lined up outside and used his size at 6’5 to catch a fade pass from McCown for the Jets first touchdown of the game. With Brandon Marshall now gone, this size mismatch in the red zone make Seferian-Jenkins arguably the team’s best red zone target. Now with three games under his belt not only does he look comfortable in the offense, but also becoming one of McCown’s favorite targets.
The other tight end, Eric Tomlinson, also had the Jets longest offense play of the day gaining 34 yards on a third down conversion.
