The New England Patriots needed someone to step up at wide receiver Monday night and Jakobi Meyers answered the bell.
The 25-year-old wideout set career highs with 12 catches and 169 receiving yards on 14 targets.

The Patriots completed an impressive fourth-quarter comeback to beat the Jets 30-27 on a 51-yard field goal as time expired at MetLife Stadium. The comeback wouldn't have been possible without Meyers, who easily was quarterback Cam Newton's most reliable target in all areas of the field.
New England's depth at wide receiver has been tested quite a bit in recent weeks with Julian Edelman and N'Keal Harry both missing the last two games due to injuries. Meyers has seen an increased workload as a result, and he's playing the best football of his career.
The next challenge for Meyers is playing at a high level on a consistent basis, especially when he's matched up against the opposing team's best, or second-best cornerback.
