Welcome to New York, Matt Forte. After a solid debut in a losing effort against the Bengals, Matt Forte had his coming out party as a New York Jet in Western New York by rushing for three touchdowns against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night.
After the Bills scored 14-straight points to open the second half, the Jets responded in kind by rattling off 10-straight points to reclaim the lead, 30-24.
However, it was still a one score game that was very much in the balance, until Forte busted through the Bills’ defensive line from 12 yards out to put the Jets up by two scores.
The three rushing TDs tied Forte’s career-high total from his time with the Chicago Bears.
