Thankfully, Jets K Chandler Catanzaro was able to drill a 41 yard FG with 28 seconds left in OT to give them the victory.
"He's a talented player", said Jets quarterback Josh McCown, making his return to Cleveland after being released by the Browns. Crowell has received 16 touches on the Browns' first 2 offensive drives combined this season.
McCown won three straight games for the first time in his career.
Now he's got a bigger one: keep the rookie quarterback on the bench or play Kevin Hogan. He sat out as a precaution, the team said. He and McGuire can really carry the Jets, and NY has won the past four meetings between these teams.
The New York Jets' unlikely run toward contention in the AFC East continued on Sunday with a 17-14 win over the Cleveland Browns. This team is still the youngest in the National Football League and the mistakes are predictable. "We knew it was going to be a tough battle on the road".
But that wasn't almost enough for the Raiders, who have dropped three consecutive following a 2-0 start, putting a severe dent in their hopes to challenge in the AFC West.
The Jets got risky last week with a fake punt, but Brant Boyer ultimately felt the (successful) punt was still not properly executed given the delay of game on the ensuing FG attempt.
The 97-yard drive by the Jets in the fourth quarter was the longest drive by yards on the road for the Jets since a 98-yard drive at Buffalo on November 24, 1996. What Hue Jackson saw was a winning performance from a group that struggled in Weeks 3 and 4. I tried to put the ball in front of him, allow a running back to get to the pylon. "We look forward to playing them". He practiced all week, but Bowles wouldn't say if Marshall would suit up against the Browns. The linebacker group did a good job getting pressure on the quarterback today.
The Jets have already outperformed many expectations with their 2-2 record this year.
Both teams are 3-2, with the Patriots' struggles almost as stunning as the Jets' early-season success. That's why you've got to swarm tackle him. While it's not why he wins this rep, Garrett's first-step quickness pops on this play below. "You do whatever you can to become a better player from the experiences that you have". He has received six targets in his last two outings and is averaging 17 yards per reception.
"It is exciting. I am ready to play, ready to show what I can do". As he becomes more comfortable in his role on the defense and with his ankle, Garrett will only become better and make a greater impact.
However, Jackson said he wants to watch more tape and take everything into account before choosing a starter for this week's game at Houston. I don't expect too many points put up in this one, as the Jets actually have a respectable defense and neither offense can light up the scoreboard. Russell Westbrook's excellent finger-gun-holstering and Carmelo Anthony's three-to-the-head are also ineligible, on account of the entire state of Oklahoma not having a professional football team.
