Instead he threw the ball to Bryant.
“Saw Dez one-on-one with his guy in the back,” Prescott said. “That’s a guy [Bryant], I’ve said it over and over again since the beginning of the year, I’ll take him one-on-one against anybody.”
Bryant reached up for the pass over Fuller and came down with Jordan Poyer Womens Jersey the 26-yard completion for his fifth catch of the day.
“I kept my eyes on him the whole time,” Bryant said of his quarterback. “I followed him and he knew I was going to be over that way and we connected very well. Got the pass down. We both knew it was important and we executed the play.”
On the next play, Elliott scored on a 1-yard run for a 31-19 lead.
Ryan Fitzpatrick took the shotgun snap, rolled two steps to his right and lofted a pass into the corner of the end zone. He released the ball before Eric Decker looked for it, trusting his receiver would turn at precisely the right moment. It made a soft landing in Decker’s confident hands and he secured it by pressing it gently against his chest for a touchdown.
MetLife Stadium shook, Decker made a Lambeau Leap into the crowd and the New York Jets celebrated a 26-20 overtime win against New England last Dec. 27.
“That feeling was awesome,” tackle Breno Giacomini recalled this week. “To Josh Gordon Womens Jersey hear the crowd and to have him actually jump into that crowd, it was tremendous.”
That play — that win — still shines as the high point of Todd Bowles’ 26-game tenure as head coach. The Jets improved to 10-5, needing only a victory in the season finale to secure a playoff berth. They never got that victory, of course, and they have been sliding backward ever since, unable to re-create that surge of electricity that lit up the team, the stadium and the fan base.
