That's okay, though. Gang Green will take the win and run with it. This year's Jets took their lumps, made mistakes, but found a way to win anyway.
"The one thing I will say is everything we've asked him to do he's done", Marrone said of Fournette, whose 285 yards rushing ranks seventh in the NFL. Our goal is to make teams drive down the field on us. Powell rushed for 163 yards, 1 TD and McGuire rushed for 93 yards, 1 TD.
Near the end of the first half, NY attempted a fake punt from their own 45-yard line. A former college fullback, Thomas has gotten some reps there over the past two weeks and has absolutely blown up defenders to spring Jets backs for big runs. All in all, he played an unbroken streak of 177 games but was sidelined by serious injuries to his left arm and was cut by the New York Jets in March, 2006.
McCown was steady for the most part (22-of-31, 224 yards) but he tossed a key interception at his own 35-yard line with 3:19 remaining in regulation that helped set up Jason Myers' game-tying 22-yard field goal that forced overtime.
The Jaguars should also take his loss as a message. 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. Roethlisberger has two or more touchdown passes in six of his last 12 games.
Leonard Fournette is being under-used. That is a constant education of the players knowing exactly what we want to do. I even said something to Gene afterward, 'You realize that was on 51. on Poz?
"This way, when the right situation comes up, we can put him there and get him in there. It's probably one of the better places, for me, that I've been in 15 years". "And then there's the story that goes out that we're trying to tell and that we believe in - and I do believe those are two different things". "I thought we had (the play) squared away in practice, but obviously we didn't".
Josh McCown and the New York Football Jets defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 23-20 in overtime Sunday. The Jets averaged 8 yards per carry and the touchdowns came on long runs of 75 and 69 yards. The Jets trailed 20-10 to start the fourth period.
"You try not to hear it", cornerback Morris Claiborne said of the negativity. "We're close. We know we're going to fight, we're going to fight through everything together".
The fumble return was the longest by a Jaguars player since Aaron Beasley's 90-yard fumble return against Cincinnati in 1998. The Jaguars are tied with Tennessee and Houston at 2-2 in the division. "It's hard to win in this league, so when you get somebody down, you have to kick them while they're down". Marqise Lee should've caught a pass at the 30-yard line, but he dropped it.
But while not having much of an issue with how often the Jaguars switch backs, there has been a major concern with WHEN the Jaguars have chose to take Fournette out of the game or just not give him the football. You can add Bass to a list of impressive low-risk acquisitions who are paying big dividends for the Jets at the moment. Ivory, however, touched the ball only 10 times.
In the replay, it's almost impossible to tell whether or not Smith and Powell make contact before the back runs for the end zone. "I shouldn't have lost my calm". Neither proved himself in the summer, while McCown has been a stabilizing force for NY on the field and in the locker room. "We got stagnant. We did a good job starting fast, but we have to find ways to maintain that and make it consistent throughout the game".
