The third-year pro said he's still getting good pressure as he tallied two QB hits against the Jaguars. Posluszny was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct after a punt and that gave the Jets the ball on the Jaguars' 25-yard line. He finished with eight tackles and two assists against them and was constantly in the backfield or around the ball when McCown threw to the interior of the field. It looked like it took all of McCown's might to heave a ball a mere 40 yards to a streaking Robbie Anderson early in the fourth quarter. Joe Namath, who was watching from a luxury suite, would've fared better than 15-for-35, 140 yards - and he's 74 years old.
Yes, it's only two wins against the weak Dolphins and the Jaguars, but it's impossible not to acknowledge the Jets are already defying expectations.
The New York Jets sixth round pick will likely see a strong increase in touches and involvement this week, as starting running back Matt Forte is out with a turf toe injury. I didn't have the "Stay" call from the guys in front of me so in my head, I'm going to bring it out and get some yards.
The 75-yard burst for Powell wasn't the only huge chunk of yardage given up by the usually stout Jaguars defense.
Jaguars kick returner Corey Grant said he erred in trying to return a first-quarter kickoff from five yards deep in the end zone. This lead to an interception, mostly due to Bilal Powell slipping, and gave Jacksonville prime field position to tie the game.
So even if we overestimated the capabilities of certain opponents in relation to the Jets, we're now looking at a possible four- to six-win season. Chandler Catanzaro drilled a 41-yard field with less than 30 seconds to play in the overtime segment to give NY (2-1) the win. After the drive stalled, Jason Myers missed the 52-yard field goal that would have made it a one-score game. It was Fournette's first career receiving touchdown, and Bortles' seventh touchdown pass of the season. It was upheld by video review, resulting in the Jets' longest touchdown run since Bruce Harper went 78 yards in 1983. Powell and McGuire scored on 75- and 69-yard runs, respectively, the first time in team history it had two runs of 65 yards or more in the same game.
Are the Jaguars a better team than before they opened September 10 at Houston? Acting owner Christopher Johnson was among them once again.
STILL STRUGGLING: The Jaguars were road favorites after being underdogs for the last 44 games away from home. With two receptions, Jaguars FB Tommy Bohanon, a former Jet, had two or more catches in a game for the first time since October 25, 2015.
