  • Jets' Brandin Echols: Scores 30-yard pick-six off Tua

    Echols had two tackles (one solo) and an interception, which he returned 30 yards for a touchdown, in Friday's 34-13 loss to the Dolphins.

    After converting a fake punt with a catch in the previous game, Echols made another splashy play, getting the Jets on the board with a pick-six in the final minute of the first half. However, the Jets surrendered a pick-six of their own on the final play before halftime, taking the air out of the team's sails and ultimately rendering Echols' touchdown inconsequential to the game's outcome.

  • Jets' Brandin Echols: Converts fake punt in loss

    Echols had five tackles (three solo) and a pass defensed in Sunday's 32-6 loss to Buffalo. He also notched an 18-yard catch.

    Echols' reception came on a fake punt, as he caught a pass thrown by punter Thomas Morstead. The play was originally ruled a 44-yard reception, but Echols was determined to have stepped out of bounds after an 18-yard gain, continuing the recent theme of the Jets having big plays reduced or erased by penalties or reviews.
