That interception of quarterback Josh Allen was a turning point for the Jets.
It was his interception which led to the Jets taking the lead over the Bills.

However, this isn’t new for the rookie cornerback, as he’s having a solid season during his rookie year.
He’s a rookie with the magic sauce, as he’s paired against some of the best receivers in the NFL.
But that’s not all, as he’s gone against some of the best NFL quarterbacks and shut them down.
What he did against Allen isn’t new, as he also held Aaron Rodgers to some low numbers earlier this season.
It’s clear the Jets found an amazing talent in Gardner when they got him in the NFL Draft.
He’s part of the reason the Jets’ defense has a little extra sauce, as they have shut down some elite offensive players this season.
