Jets' Basham Blocks Punt, B.J. Bello Returns For TD Vs Ravens

By WFAN Sports Radio 101.9 FM/66AM New York

It's been a rough night for the New York Jets, taking on dual-threat quarterback sensation Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday Night Football.

The Jets trailed 35-7 entering the fourth quarter. On fourth-and-eight and Ravens punter Sam Koch forced to kick the ball to the Jets, linebacker Tarell Basham blocked the punt and defensive end B.J. Bello ran it 14 yards for the touchdown.

New York had won four of their last five games, including a thrilling 22-21 victory last weekend over the Miami Dolphins on kicker Sam Ficken's game-winning field goal as time expired.

This week hasn't quite been the same. Jackson had five total touchdowns for Baltimore as he strengthens his case for the NFL's Most Valuable Player award. Jets quarterback Sam Darnold could never really find his groove, completing 18-of-32 passes for just 218 passing yards, two touchdowns and one interception. The Jets fell 42-21 to the Ravens Thursday night.
