EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — New York Jets defensive take on Quinnen Williams used a vicious stiff-arm Sunday to run over Miami Dolphins vast receiver Tyreek Hill on a fumble go back — a play that went viral on social media and was once celebrated through the Jets after their 40-17 win at MetLife Stadium.
Defensive finish John Franklin-Myers stated he took umbrage to Hill spurning the Jets within the offseason, announcing Hill’s feedback on the time had been “disrespectful” to the Jets. They extremely joyful in seeing him get tossed to the turf through the 303-pound Williams.
“We just played with a chip on our shoulder after that whole, ‘Jets, who?’ thing,” Franklin-Myers stated. “I think that rubbed everybody the wrong way.”
Franklin-Myers stated Hill’s remarks had been “circling Twitter” in fresh days. “That fired me up. I don’t get fired up about a lot of stuff and I don’t care about people talking, but that’s disrespectful and I don’t like disrespect. You shouldn’t do that no matter who you are.”
He was once relating to Hill’s feedback from March, in a while after he was once traded through the Kansas City Chiefs. At his introductory information convention in South Florida, Hill was once requested if he was once just about choosing the Jets. Smiling, he spoke back, “Who? The Jets? Nah, man, I knew I was going to pick Miami no matter what.”
The Jets had been thinking about buying and selling for Hill, who was once granted permission through the Chiefs to barter a freelance with different groups. Essentially, he had his number of groups. Last week, Hill backtracked from his previous remarks, announcing he was once “very close” to selecting the Jets, including that the deciding issue was once no state source of revenue tax in Florida.
Too past due. It already had touched a nerve with the Jets.
“The message is still the message,” Franklin-Myers stated. “You can laugh and shrug it off, but I didn’t like that, and the team didn’t like that.”
Hill, who started the day with a league-high 477 receiving yards, was once held to 47 yards on seven catches. That the Dolphins modified quarterbacks on the second one play of the sport — rookie Skylar Thompson changed injured fill-in starter Teddy Bridgewater — was once certainly an element.
With 9:13 final within the fourth quarter, the 191-pound Hill attempted to take on Williams, who scooped up a unfastened ball on a strip sack through defensive finish Carl Lawson. It did not cross neatly for Hill, who were given tossed apart through the rumbling defensive take on. The 12-yard go back arrange the Jets on the Miami 5-yard line. Moments later, operating again Breece Hall scored to ice the sport at 33-17.
Fellow defensive take on Sheldon Rankins laughed at his locker as he recalled the play.
“Obviously, you want to see a big man get in the end zone and do a little dance, but a close second is launching another human being into the ground,” Rankins stated. “That’s a very close second.”
Rankins stated he idea Hill would “try to chop [Williams] low” to make the open-field take on. “No, he just ran right into Quinnen’s arms and Quinnen extended his arm and …”
Rankins paused for impact, including, “And Tyreek was gone.”
Williams downplayed it, announcing he was once simply seeking to make yards to assist his crew. He could not recall the remaining time he had a possibility to run with the ball. He known as Hill “an amazing player,” announcing “his speed is ridiculous.”
Told that his stiff-arm made him seem like Tennessee Titans operating again and previous Alabama big name Derrick Henry, Williams joked, “It’s something Coach Saban taught us as Bama.”
The Jets (3-2) snapped a four-game shedding streak to the Dolphins (3-2) and a 12-game shedding streak to AFC East fighters, going above .500 for the primary time since a 1-0 get started in 2018. They outscored the Dolphins through 21 issues within the fourth quarter, their absolute best fourth-quarter scoring margin in a recreation for the reason that Monday Night Miracle in 2000 towards the Dolphins.
“We got the last laugh,” Franklin-Myers stated, temporarily noting the Jets will face the Dolphins once more on the overall Sunday of the season.
