New York Jets vs Jacksonville Jaguars

After a win in week three, the Jets welcomed the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-1) in an attempt to go.500 for the season. It marked the first time in franchise history the Jets ran for two 60-yards-plus touchdowns in the same game, and only the second time they had two runs that long since Jones had 64- and 71-yarders in that "09 loss to the Bills". The officials ruled there actually was no penalty on the play - giving the Jets the victory. That led to Catanzaro's 26-yard field goal that gave NY a 20-10 lead.

NY was fueled by its ground game on Sunday as Bilal Powell rushed for a career-high 163 yards and was supported by an additional 93 from rookie Elijah McGuire.

McGuire had given the Jets a 17-10 lead with 10:02 left in the third quarter with his 69-yard TD run, the first National Football League score for the sixth-rounder out of Louisiana-Lafayette.

But the Jets answered right back on their next play from scrimmage when Powell went up the middle and appeared to get tripped up as he leaped over a Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith, but smartly got up - after not being touched by Smith - and took off for a 75-yard touchdown. A quick three-and-out led to a Brad Nortman 45-yard punt that put the Jets near midfield. After the 31-yard conversion, Chandler Catanzaro missed a field goal heading into the half. The Jets settled for a field goal, though, taking a 20-10 lead in the final minute of the third quarter.

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

Myers hit a 30-yard field with 5:10 left in the first half to give the Jaguars a 10-7 lead, capping a 13-play drive that took 7:15. Down by 10 points in the fourth quarter, Bortles took matters into his own hands.

After a Leonard Fournette touchdown was wiped away by a holding call, Jacksonville settled for a 22-yard field goal with 46 seconds left to force overtime. With 3:19 left in the game McCown was looking for Powell on third down to try and ice the game, but the back slipped with the ball approaching, leaving A.J. Bouye an uncontested chance to intercept the pass, which he did on the Jets' 35-yard-line.
