Jets Sail Past Redskins, 34-20

The Washington Redskins’ defense put the clamps on the New York Jets in the first half Sunday, causing three turnovers as they took a 13-10 lead into halftime.

But it was entirely different game from the third quarter on, as the Jets scored on their first four possessions of the half en route to an easy 34-20 win over the injury-ravaged Redskins at home.

Chris Ivory had 20 carries for 146 yards and a score, leading a New York rushing attack that bulled for 221 yards. Jets wideout Brandon Marshall caught 7 passes for 111 yards and a touchdown, becoming the franchise’s first player to top 100 receiving yards in four straight games in more than 40 years.

Kirk Cousins’ turnover issues continued, as the Redskins quarterback threw two interceptions to bring his season total to eight in the first six games. He was 25 of 43 for 196 yards and one touchdown, but was largely ineffective in the second half.

Washington’s running game was even worse, gaining just 34 yards as they sorely missed rookie Matt Jones, one of several injured Redskins that were inactive Sunday.

Washington made things vaguely interesting late when Rashad Ross recovered a blocked punt in the end zone for a touchdown to cut the lead to 14 with four minutes left. But the Redskins squandered a golden opportunity on the ensuing onside kick when Mason Foster couldn’t hang on to the ball, and the Jets (4-1) recovered to snuff out any comeback hopes.

The Redskins wasted a stellar game from cornerback Bashaud Breeland, who had an interception and two recovered fumbles — one of which he forced — leading to all 13 first-half Washington points.

The loss was Washington’s second straight, dropping them to 2-4 and into the NFC East cellar. They’ll host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-3) next week.
