Lacey victimized on Edwards’ 80-yard TD catch

The Jets didn’t wait long to take advantage of Colts CB Jerraud Powers‘ knee injury.

Early in the second quarter of Sunday’s AFC Championship Game, Mark Sanchez hit Braylon Edwards for an 80-yard touchdown pass over Jacob Lacey, who replaced Powers in the Colts’ starting lineup. The score gave the Jets a 7-3 lead after they had allowed the Pierre Garcon-led Colts to drive for a field goal.

Lacey, a rookie, played in all 16 games during the regular season and started nine times. He had 85 tackles and ranked second on the team with three interceptions, one returned for a TD.

The Colts responded with a 19-yard field goal after the Jets’ defense stopped Austin Collie at the 1 on a third-down pass play.
