Todd Bowles doesn't want 2-2 Jets to get overconfident

Todd Bowles doesn't want 2-2 Jets to get overconfident”

They are not asking him to do too much.

That's after Yeldon led the Jaguars in rushing for two straight seasons after joining Jacksonville in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Jack's play helped prevent the Jets from padding a 20-10 lead at the time, and instead cut their margin to just three points with a little over 10 minutes left in the game.

It's that defiant approach that has made the Jets' ragtag bunch of veterans, no-names and inexperienced youngsters an intriguing opponent. But now, the team filled with young players and new additions, has coalesced into one with an identity of never quitting. Now obviously Fournette had more carries, and rightfully so, but Ivory also got his share of time on the field. And believe me, we feed off of it. One hundred and ten percent and he's good.

The New York Jets had a chance to have a laugher. I hated it because these guys were working their tails off, and they deserved for that one to go through the post.

Leonard Fournette continues to be the lone consistent player on the offensive side of the ball. And while all the talk will be centered on Monday about running back Bilal Powell and his 163 rushing yards, McCown has been the flawless elixir for this team.

"We were once a winless club, and we know how that feels", Bowles said. Don't hesitate to jump in on the live updates and chat with us as the game rolls along. "We've got a lot of work to do". This game seemed a lot like what was expected from the Jets as a team. Stout defenses like the Broncos and Bucs won't surrender a pair of 70-yard touchdown runs like the Jaguars did Sunday. Meanwhile, Revis hasn't hooked on elsewhere. He's been used as a box safety, a coverage safety, a man cornerback and a linebacker. Davis is second in the National Football League with 40 total tackles, while Pryor is on IR with Jacksonville after being cut by the Browns for fighting with a teammate.

Then again, who ever said that being a Jets fan for over 45 years was logical? Since there were 22 seconds left, it seemed like NY was going to boot it down the field and get into the locker room with the score deadlocked. He tried to play down the stretch with an ankle injury before finally going on IR in the final week of the regular season.

After 16 seasons in the NFL, Mawae retired in September of 2010. There was infighting between receiver Brandon Marshall and defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson.

And totally, there were situations that might have turned the game in the Jaguars' favor, sending them home with a wining record and sole possession of the AFC South lead, had Fournette been allowed to contribute. McCown took another five sacks Sunday, some of which could be blamed on his faulty internal clock.

"He's unbelievably resolved and resilient", McCown said of his former coach.
