WR Percy Harvin recorded his first touchdown reception as a Jet on a 35-yard grab from QB Geno Smith early in the first quarter. This touchdown marks Harvin’s first receiving touchdown since 10/25/12.
Harvin finished the game with 124 receiving yards, which is his second 100-yard receiving game as a Jet. This is the first time a Jets receiver has accomplished this since the 2010 season.
Harvin added 127 all-purpose yards on the day with 100-yards coming in the first half alone.
DT Sheldon Richardson added three sacks of QB Teddy Bridewater, the first coming in the MIN endzone for eight yards and a safety on MIN’s first drive of the game. This marks his first career multi-sack game. Richardson now has 6.5 sacks on the season, which currently leads the team and exceeds his rookie season sack total of 3.5.
Richardson’s three sacks in today’s game marks the Jets highest single-game sack total since the 2009 season when LB Calvin Pace recorded three sacks vs. OAK (10/25/09).
RB Bilal Powell and LB Trevor Reilly worked together to force a fumble on MIN’s second half kickoff return. This marks the first recovery of an opponents’ fumble since PIT in Week Ten and first on the road since Week Two at Green Bay.
CB Darrin Walls recorded his second interception of the season in as many games, picking off Bridgewater’s final pass of the second quarter. This marks his third career interception.
Jets K Nick Folk connected on a key 44-yard field goal with 23 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, tying and sending the game into overtime. Folk connected on all five of his field goal attempts on the day, which ties his career high, the last coming vs. MIN (10/11/10).
QB Geno Smith was 18-of-29 for 254 yards and a touchdown, ending the game with an 87.4 passer rating. At the two-minute warning, Smith led a 45-yard drive setting up a Folk game-tying 44-yard field goal sending the game into overtime.
