Former Duke football standout Jamison Crowder had his first sub-par game of the 2020 season for the New York Jets.

The New York Jets still cannot win a football game, and their best player thus far in the year finally had a less than stellar game.

Jamison Crowder had eclipsed the 100-yard receiving mark in every single game he has played in this season, but that streak came to an end on Sunday in Miami.

Crowder and the Jets were in South Beach to face the Dolphins, and New York was shut out for the first time this season, falling to 0-6.

In his second start of the season, backup quarterback Joe Flacco continued to look for his most explosive weapon in Crowder, as he was targeted a team-high 13 times and also reeled in a team-high seven receptions, but the former Blue Devil was only able to turn that into 48 yards for Gang Green.

Those 48 yards were still the second-highest on the team, only trailing Breshad Perriman, who made his return to the field after an injury and caught four passes for 62 yards in the 24-0 loss.

Despite the lack of an imaginative offense and injuries at the quarterback position, Jamison Crowder is still the leading receiver for the New York Jets through six games, and it’s not even remotely close.

Crowder, who has only played in four games, has 29 receptions on 46 targets for 383 yards, two touchdowns, and has gained 16 first downs this season.

All of those statistics lead the lowly Jets, although receiver Braxton Berrios also has two receiving touchdowns this season.

New York is hoping to get starting quarterback Sam Darnold back on the field in Week 7 as the team will host the AFC East-leading Buffalo Bills from MetLife Stadium on Sunday, October 25, with kickoff scheduled at 1:00pm EST on CBS.
