MONROE — After being held without a catch in the first half of the season-opener, New York Jets receiver Jamison Crowder dominated the third quarter in his team’s 27-17 loss at Buffalo on Sunday
Crowder had five catches on the Jets’ first drive of the third quarter, and finished the 15-minute period with six catches for 113 yards — including a short pass over the middle that he turned into a 69-yard touchdown.
Crowder, a former two-sport star at Monroe High School, finished the day with seven catches for a game-high 115 yards in the loss to the Bills. It was Crowder’s seventh career 100-yard receiving game and his first since November of 2017.
Now in his sixth NFL season after an all-American career at Duke, Crowder has 306 catches for 3,576 yards and 21 touchdowns in 73 games.
The 27-year-old Crowder is in his second season in New York after playing his first four years with Washington. In March of 2019, Crowder signed a three-year, $28.5 million contract with the Jets that included $17 million in guaranteed money.
Crowder was an all-state football player during his career at Monroe High, and also led the Redhawks’ basketball team to a state championship in 2010.
The Jets will host San Francisco on Sunday, Sept. 20, starting at 1 p.m.
