Duke football: Jamison Crowder continues to set records for New York Jets

Former Duke football wide receiver Jamison Crowder continues to make history with the New York Jets.

There is only one wide receiver in the NFL this season that has amassed over 100 receiving yards in every game he has played in.

It’s former Blue Devil and current New York Jet Jamison Crowder.

Unfortunately for the slot man, it has not resulted in victories for him or the Jets as the team has dropped to 0-5 following a 30-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium.

However, Crowder did not play in New York’s Week 2 and Week 3 losses to the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts.

Jets starting quarterback Sam Darnold was inactive for the game because of a shoulder injury that he suffered in last week’s Thursday night loss to the Denver Broncos, so New York had to turn to former Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco in Week 5.

Like Darnold, Flacco quickly became fond of the steady hands of Crowder, targeting him 10 times, where he reeled in eight receptions for 116 yards and a touchdown.

Jets wide receiver Jeff Smith was the only player targeted more than Crowder, but Smith only caught three of his targets for 23 yards.

Jamison Crowder was outshined by Cardinals All-Pro receiver DeAndre Hopkins. who led the game in receiving with 131 yards on six receptions and a touchdown.

Crowder’s touchdown got the Jets back in the game as New York cut Arizona’s lead to 17-10 midway through the third quarter, but the Cardinals quickly responded with a 10-play, 70-yard touchdown drive of their own and never looked back.

It’s still unclear as to whether Sam Darnold will be back on the field next Sunday, but the winless Jets will look to turn the tables on the Miami Dolphins, who recorded their first win in South Beach over New York last season.

The Jets were scheduled to make the trip to Los Angeles to face the Chargers next week, but there were changes in the NFL slate of games forced by the postponement of the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos.

New York and Miami will kick off on Sunday at 4:05pm EST on CBS.
