Again, the Jets’ rising talents shone brightest for New York, with cornerback Sauce Gardner helping to restrict Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers to to 210 passing yards and rookie running back Breece Hall exploding for 116 rushing yards and a touchdown.
Hall spotted several Jets supporters nearby the end zone as he broke loose on a touchdown run, and he got to do the Lambeau Leap.
The youthful upstarts seemed to be making a statement with Hall’s jump into the crowd, and it wasn’t the only one the Jets would make that day.
After the victory, Sauce Gardner made a lap of honor around the stadium while dressed as one of Green Bay’s iconic cheese heads.
After some time, a Packers player reached Gardner and crushed the cheese head.
Gardner praised the Jets supporters that traveled by saying, “It sort of felt like we were playing a home game,” to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network after the game.
After three consecutive victories, the Jets are just one game behind the Buffalo Bills in the AFC East standings.
