White Steps In, Leads Jets To Wild 34-31 Win Over Bengals
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Mike White threw for 405 yards and three touchdowns in his first NFL start, caught a 2-point conversion pass on the go-ahead score and had the fans chanting his name while leading the New York Jets to a wild 34-31 comeback victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
White started in place of injured rookie Zach Wilson.
He went 37 of 45 to set an NFL record for the most completions in a player’s first start.
He joined Cam Newton as the only players since at least 1950 to throw for 400 or more yards in their first career start.
