Decker caught his second touchdown of the year.

Marshall’s six receptions totaled his 45th 100-yard game of his prolific career.

Enunwa came through in the clutch on key third down conversions which showed his ability to deliver when needed most.

At the rate these wide receivers are going, they will be quite the unit to prepare against for opposing defenses.

With the dimension Enunwa brings to the table, he’s on his way to possibly having a breakout year. Since all eyes are on his other partners in crime, he could really emerge as the next best receiver on the Jets.
