A former Duke football wide receiver completed a trick play to cap a stunning upset. 

While things have not been going well in Durham for the Duke football team, a former Blue Devil helped pull off a stunning upset in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Jamison Crowder was the veteran target for New York Jets (2-5) quarterback Mike White, who was making his first NFL start against the Cincinnati Bengals (5-3) on Sunday afternoon.

White was replacing rookie Zach Wilson after his knee injury suffered last week.

Crowder was the favorite target of White out of the wide receivers as the former Blue Devil reeled in eight passes for 84 yards, although he did have a fumble in the first half.

However, Jamison Crowder was able to give the Jets a three-point lead in the fourth quarter on a passing attempt on a 2-point conversion.

New York dialed up the famous ‘Philly Special’ that the Philadelphia Eagles ran to perfection in Super Bowl LII against the New England Patriots.

The ball was snapped to White, and he handed it to rookie wide receiver Elijah Moore, who then flipped to Crowder. He then arched a pass to the corner of the end zone as White reeled in the pass to put the Jets up 34-31, the score they would go on to win by.

Jamison Crowder missed the first three games of the season because of a groin injury but has been impactful during his time on the field.

Crowder has 30 receptions for 203 yards and a touchdown this season on 23 targets.

The Jets have a 2-2 record when the former Blue Devil is on the field this season.

Jamison Crowder and the New York Jets will try and pick up another victory on a short week as the team travels to Indianapolis to play the Colts (3-5) on Thursday Night Football (8:20pm EST, FOX).
