Bashaud Breeland saves Washington with turnovers and tackles against Jets

Night net Out of almost nowhere, Washington cornerback Bashaud Breeland made a bid for Night net defensive player of the year. If nothing else, he had the best first half of any defensive player in Sunday’s early games, by recovering one fumble, forcing and recovering another, making a touchdown-saving tackle and making an acrobatic, diving interception against the Jets.Unbelievable pick by Breeland. #NYJ— Gotham SN (@GothamSN) October 18, 2015MORE: Scoreboard | Worst moments in Night net Week 6 | Must-see Week 6 images  Breeland was personally responsible for all 13 points for injury-riddled Washington — plus saving his team four more — as they took a surprise 13-10 lead over the Jets at halftime at the Meadowlands.Breeland recovered Eric Decker’s fumble after a reception on the Jets’ first possession, and that led to a field goal and a 3-0 lead.  Early in the second quarter, the Jets’ Chris Ivory broke loose down the left sideline for a 54-yard run, but Breeland chased him down and ran him out of bounds at the Washington 21. The Jets were held to a field goal.With five minutes left in the half, Breeland wrestled Brandon Marshall on a reception, ripped the ball loose and dove on it at the Washington 45. That set up a 54-yard field goal that tied the game at 10.And in the final minute of the half, a Ryan Fitzgerald pass was too far for Marshall, who got a hand on it to deflect it — but Breeland stretched out to catch the deflection and return it just past midfield. Washington kicked another field goal with two seconds left

in the half.
