Jeff Cumberland getting good matchups Dan Leberfeld

In both of the Jets’ preseason games, Jeff Cumberland has caught touchdown passes.

And on both occasions, he got a great match-up, on a linebacker, one-on-one, and took advantage of it.

“I had the linebacker on me one-on-one,” Cumberland said about his 23-yard TD catch against Jacksonville. “When I came out, I broke out my route, the linebacker fell, I just caught the ball and ran into the end zone.”

Cumberland is a tough cover for linebackers because of his 4.5 speed.
