For the New York Jets to make NFL history they needed a ton of help from a few different areas of the team.

One of the most unlikely came via defensive back Ashtyn Davis who made the game-sealing interception in the waning moments of the unbelievable comeback versus the Cleveland Browns.

Ashtyn Davis Is Here to Stay After Walk-off Home Run

The Browns had 22 seconds on the clock after the Jets took the lead with a Garrett Wilson touchdown and successful extra point conversion down 31-30.

Jacoby Brissett used his wheels to gallop for a 21-yard scramble and according to Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic that was enough time to make a quick defensive change to get Davis on the field.

During his first defensive snap of the 2022 season, Davis went for quality over quantity approach. He read Brissett like a picture book and intercepted a pass that was intended for Pro Bowl wide receiver Amari Cooper.

Throughout training camp, the majority of fans and media had written him off as an inevitable future roster cut. However to everyone’s surprise he made the final 53-man roster.

After the game head coach Robert Saleh was asked about Davis’ performance:

“Maybe he has been buried [on the depth chart] to others, not here. There is a reason why he made this football team. He has been getting better every single week and he was opportunistic last year in finding the ball. He is just getting his feet wet as he finds his footing. People take for granted how good he is on special teams. But to give him that opportunity to go three-down and try to keep that ball in front. Credit to him for keeping an eye on the quarterback and he came away with one.”
