After a win in week three, the Jets welcomed the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-1) in an attempt to go .500 for the season. RB Bilal Powell started in place of an injured Matt Forte. On a day when Kevin Mawae was inducted into the Ring of Honor, here is the good, the bad and the ugly…

 

THE GOOD

For the first time this season, the offense got off to a good start. First quarter totals included 4 first downs, 131 total yards and 0 turnovers.

QB Josh McCown was 10/11 for 95 yards in the first half and 22/31 for 224 overall.

Bilal Powell scored on a 75-yard TD run which was the second longest in team history. Powell had 113 yards at the half and a career-high 21 carries for 163 in the game.

RB Elijah McGuire had a 69-yard touchdown run.

WR Robby Anderson led all receivers with 59 yards and a long of 41.

Special teams successfully pulled off a fake punt near the end of the first half.

DE Kony Ealy intercepted a pass from QB Blake Bortles which led to a K Chandler Catanzaro 26-yard field goal.

Catanzaro kicked a game-winning 41-yard field goal.

 

THE BAD

A costly delay-of-game penalty pushed back a Catanzaro field goal attempt which he missed from 45-yards out.

The defense gave up 145 total yards to RB Leonard Fournette.

 

THE UGLY

The offensive line gave up costly first-half sacks.

A backwards pass from McCown to Powell was picked up by Jacksonville’s Myles Jack and returned 81-yards for a touchdown.

 

Jets inactive players included: TE Will Tye, TE Jordan Leggett, OLB Josh Martin, QB Christian Hackenberg, RB Matt Forte, CB Derrick Jones, T Brandon Shell
