QB Mike White Has Awesome Game, Leads Jets to 34-31 Win Over Bengals

In the New York Jets’ 7th game of the 2021 season, on a perfect day for football in East Rutherford, the Jets gave the fans a Halloween treat with a surprising 34 – 31 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Early in the game the Jets marched right down the field for a touchdown against a good Bengals defense to open the game. Mike White was passing the ball all over the place, the Bengals came out a little flat, and just like that it was 7 – 0 Jets.

The defense forced a three and out and the Jets got the ball back, but quickly coughed it up on a Mike White interception, the first of three first half turnovers by the Jets. The Bengals scored 17 unanswered points to take a 17 – 7 lead at the two minute mark of the first half.

The Jets refused to fold, marching down the field for a Mike White to Braxton Berrios touchdown pass and a 17 – 14 halftime deficit.

In the second half it was the Mike White show. White led a relentless Jets offense on five consecutive scoring drives. He passed for more than 400 yards on the game, overcoming a couple of early interceptions to play out of his mind in his first NFL start.

The Jets had themselves an improbable 34 – 31 victory.

With the win the Jets go to 2-5 on the year.
