HEAVY HEART: Jets defensive end Kony Ealy missed practice early in the week before returning Friday following the death of his sister. Wilkerson, spoke on Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017, in Florham Park. Powell had 113 yards at the half and a career-high 21 carries for 163 in the game.
The Jaguars face the New York Jets at 1 p.m. Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
Powell finished with a massive 163 yards on the ground as the Jets beat the Jaguars 23-20 in overtime, but he wasn't the only RB to impress in NY. Look at the output in the running game. "And that's exactly what we did". Using Powell to move the ball downfield, the Jets were able to slice through the Jaguars' defense. It's just what the Jaguars were looking for - a continuation of the way they played in London.
Ealy - who the Jets claimed off waivers late in training camp after he was cut by the Patriots - would have scored on the play if not for a touchdown-saving tackle from Bortles, who completed just 15 of 35 passes for 140 yards and an interception. They have arguably one of the best lines in the National Football League based on their performance over the first three weeks.
Here's how the Jets got to 2-2 in one of the silliest games of the year. "[Fournette] is a great back". We cover names who aren't on your list of must-starts, but could fit into gaps where you need a boost. Not many had Gang Green beating the Dolphins but they showed up and played well as a team.
Matt Forte missed Week 4 action with a toe injury, but it didn't appear that NY missed him all that much. Jacksonville still hasn't won consecutive road games since 2013.
The 75-yard burst for Powell wasn't the only huge chunk of yardage given up by the usually stout Jaguars defense.
It has been a long time since the Jets have run that well am I right? And it was a odd one.
The Jets outgained the Jaguars 471-311 in total yards, including 256-175 on the ground.
"He approaches the game like a true professional", Powell said of McGuire.
So he popped back up, as the Jaguars defense watched, and ran into the end zone for a touchdown.
"It was a heads-up play by him", Jaguars defensive lineman Calais Campbell said.
"It happens", Powell said. As the game went along, the run defense improved and it even was crucial in stopping a few third-and-short situations. All this from a team that many fans and media thought would have a hard time winning just one game this season with a revamped and mostly inexperienced roster. After the teams traded field goals to make it 10-10, McGuire busted through the heart of the Jaguars' defense and raced 69 yards to give the Jets a 17-10 lead with 10:13 left in the third quarter.
"That's two dynamic backs", McGuire said. I'm interested to see if Brandon Shell can have a bounce back week after having some trouble against Cameron Wake last Sunday. "I made one defender miss and I took it to the house". The offense then produced a touchdown-scoring drive on its first series.
