Brandin Echols with 30-yard pick-six off Tua Tagovailoa

The New York Jets’ offense was going nowhere. Leave it to Brandin Echols and the defense to put some jump into the team on Black Friday.

Trailing 10-0 late in the second quarter against the Miami Dolphins on Friday at MetLife, Echols jumped a route and was off and running after picking off the Tua Tagovailoa pass.

Thirty yards later, he was in the end zone and the Jets were within 10-6 of the AFC East leaders.

That’s right, 10-6, because Greg Zuerlein missed the PAT.

Tim Boyle, who replaced an ineffective Zach Wilson as the Jets’ starting quarterback, was not doing much in the first 30 minutes.

He completed 7 of 10 passes for all of 35 yards.
