NY Jets: Brandon Marshall makes even more team history
Wide receiver Brandon Marshall has made a major impact on the NY Jets as he continues to etch his name into franchise history.
Needless to say, Marshall has continued to be an x-factor for the Jets this season. He’s the impact kind of player that the Jets’ offense hasn’t had in years. So far this season, Marshall has totaled 1,376 receiving yards on 101 receptions and a career-high 13 touchdowns.
In their thriller of a win against the New England Patriots in overtime, Marshall once again stepped up big time for the Jets. As a matter of fact, his first reception of the game was the one that broke the single season franchise record for most receptions. It was a record held by wide receiver Al Toon that dated back to 1988.
In addition to that, with his ninth 100+ yard game of the season, Marshall tied wide receiver Don Maynard for that many in a single season. Marshall also set an NFL record as he became the first player in history to produce six 100+ reception seasons.
Marshall has proven to be worth the investment by the Jets as he’s gone above and beyond the call of duty. He’s put behind the mantra that he could turn into a locker room cancer or diva if he didn’t get his way and has become the ultimate teammate to every single member across the team.
More jets: Hope can be a powerful weapon for Jets
He’s the kind of player that not only stepped up when the Jets needed it most in clutch situations but has proven to be consistent all season long. He’s set franchise and league records and above all else, is having fun on the football field as he’s helped put the Jets in a “win and get in” situation against the upcoming Buffalo Bills to reach the NFL Playoffs for the first time in his prolific career.
