Every team in the NFL has tried to stop the Eagles’ ‘Tush Push’ play, and nearly all of them have failed. Robert Saleh and his Jets are next in line.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, the Birds have converted 13 of 16 first downs when running the ‘Tush Push.’ New York has defended the play three times this season and they’ve only managed to stop it once – when Mac Jones was the one running it.
If the Jets want to give Hurts 11 smooches in an attempt to stop the ‘Tush Push,’ be my guest.
