The Jets escaped a rough one in Dallas last night, scraping a 19-16 victory over the Cowboys. Despite it being a sloppy performance, Deckers 4th quarter TD set a franchise record.

You don't need me to tell you how good Marshall and Decker have been this year, they are without doubt the most dominating partnership I've ever personally seen with the Jets, and now they hold a place in history.

When Decker scored his 10th Touchdown off the season and 9th touchdown in the red-zone, he helped set a franchise record. Decker and Marshall have scored a combined 21 touchdowns this year, which is the most in Jets history. They passed the previous record of 20 set by Don Maynard and Art Powell (1960) and Wesley Walker and Al Toon in 1986.

If the Jets want to continue playing into January, they will need both receivers to continue their hot streak. It wasn't the cleanest game by either receiver last night, but both came through in big spots to lead the Jets. Decker continues to convert key 3rd downs and Marshall offers that big play potential.

Congratulations to both. Hopefully they go on to extend the record by a significant margin.
