Mike White & Jets shock the Bengals with 34-31 victory

The Associated Press wrote: 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 on Sunday. White, starting in place of injured rookie Zach Wilson, pulled off an improbable victory for the Jets (2-5) while going 37 of 45 — setting an NFL record for the most completions in a player's first start. White was hurt when he was slammed from behind by Cam Sample, resulting in a roughing the passer penalty. White’s head slammed into left tackle Chuma Edoga, and the quarterback remained on his back for several minutes before he jogged off the field to the medical tent. Josh Johnson, who hadn't thrown a pass in the NFL since 2018 with Washington, came in and nearly had a touchdown toss. But his throw into the end zone on third down couldn't be handled by Denzel Mimz.
