Jets' dancing defense a social media hit with smooth moves

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets' dancing defense is an opponent-smashing hit.

Playing under the bright lights of MetLife Stadium — just a few miles across the Hudson River from Broadway — Demario Davis, Jamal Adams, Darron Lee and the rest of the Jets' D shook off their previous fourth-quarter struggles with some serious dance moves.

During a commercial break with 13:01 remaining Thursday night, Lil Uzi Vert's "444+222" blared from the stadium's public address system. With the Buffalo Bills setting up at their own 9 and waiting for the game to resume, all 11 of the Jets' defensive players on the field turned the turf into a green-and-white dance floor .

There was lots of arm waving, hip shaking and big-time bouncing — with many of the remaining fans in the stands getting into it, too.

For a squad that had blown fourth-quarter leads in each of its last two games, the Jets were plenty loose this time around. And, five plays later, Jordan Jenkins forced a fumble that Davis recovered. It led to Matt Forte's touchdown that put New York up 31-7.

The Bills ended up scoring two late TDs to make it a 34-21 final, but the defense was able to dance the night away.

Video of the impromptu groove session drew over 150,000 views — and counting — on Instagram nine hours after the team posted it. The Jets' Twitter post of the video had almost 2,000 retweets and nearly 3,500 likes.
