"I was just doing my job", Catanzaro said. Powell and McGuire are the fifth pair of teammates with rushing touchdowns of 69-plus in the same game and the first since 2008.
Jackson said he needed to watch the tape, but also said the failure to convert wasn't all on Crowell.
"I am also responsible for [the other 52 players on the active roster]".
Garrett will play on what Hue Jackson described Thursday as "a pitch count". "We have to be smart about our expectations of him this weekend". I would have never thought before the season that we would be, but it is what it is.
Their attempt at an onside kick came up empty though as the Jets were able to run out the clock to preserve the win. McCown will have to be firing on all cylinders out of the gate next week if the Jets want to have a chance against New England.
The Raiders (2-3), playing without injured star quarterback Derek Carr and two key cornerbacks, played from behind all game as Smith returned Jared Cook's fumble 47 yards for a touchdown that made it 14-0 just 3:50 in. They did all that without Matt Forte and if NY isn't careful, not only is it going to screw itself out of the No. 1 pick, they might end up out of the Top Three. "I can move, I can run, I can bend, and if I can do that, I can be out there and I can make a difference". However, Cleveland lead did not last long as Hogan threw an interception and the Jets scored in a couple of plays later. Bilal Powell will again sub for Forte after he rushed for a career-high 163 yards Sunday against Jacksonville.
For the rest of the game, Hogan at least managed the game at least somewhat well.
"It's special", he said about the prospect of a Game 1 sack. "We were struggling. It was nearly like pulling teeth the whole game". Britt is listed as doubtful with knee and groin injuries, leaving the Browns with an uncertain receiver rotation this week.
The Browns signed speedster Bryce Treggs off Philadelphia's practice squad this week and he may face the Jets. Neither the offense nor defense have looked particularly good this season, and changes may be coming for the Browns.
The Jets defense has found its groove these two weeks.
The Browns are hoping the 21-year-old year Garrett cannot only help them get their first win, but turn around a franchise that has had just one playoff appearance since 1999. He's not looking for revenge.
"We played well when we were needed, but we didn't play well consistently enough the whole game", he said.
The Jets rank 30th with six sacks, none from defensive linemen Muhammad Wilkerson or Leonard Williams. Robby Anderson is New York's top receiver; he's posted 204 yards and a TD on 12 catches and 24 targets. Defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers isn't happy about that, and he let his guys know it.
However, the Eagles have the second-to-lowest number of tackles in the league thus far, making it extremely unlikely we will get to see this local National Basketball Association homage in the near future. Now we're still trying to fix our problems and do what we can do best and go win this next football game.
