EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — A catch, a thud and a whole lot of open field.
On the final play of the first quarter, Boyd caught a pass from quarterback Joe Burrow, lowered his shoulder into Jets safety Jordan Whitehead and wriggled loose for a touchdown to give the Bengals a 14-3 lead over the Jets.
Boyd accumulated 47 yards after the catch and 44 yards after contact according to ESPN Stats and Info.
Boyd was a focal point for Cincinnati’s offense in the opening quarter against New York. In the opening 15 minutes, Boyd racked up 91 receiving yards. He had 50 yards on six catches through the first two weeks of the season.
The veteran receiver played a big role in Cincinnati’s best offensive showing so far in 2022.
BURROW. BOYD. 56 YARDS. #RuleTheJungle
