Jets’ Garrett Wilson, Breece Hall score first career TDs

Garrett Wilson is on the board for the season.

The rookie wideout scored his first touchdown in a Jets uniform in the second quarter on Sunday, converting a 2-yard pass from Joe Flacco on a fade route to tie the game at seven against the Browns.

The score came after a gutsy fourth down call from Robert Saleh, who dialed up a fake punt at the team’s own 46-yard line. Braden Mann hit Jeff Smith for 17 yards and the Jets were in business.

From there, Elijah Moore caught a 13-yard pass and Breece Hall ran for 23 yards to set the Jets up inside the 10-yard line. Wilson then caught two straight passes, the second of which got the Jets into the end zone.

A Jacoby Brissett touchdown to Amari Cooper gave the Browns a 14-7 lead later in the second quarter.

Later in the half, Hall added his first career touchdown on a 10-yard catch from Flacco, tying the game at 14, which held at halftime. The Iowa State product went into halftime with 36 rushing yards as well.
