Jets squeak by with OT win over Jaguars

NY couldn't get anything going on offense, though, settling for a 26-yard field goal by Catanzaro that made it 20-10. The Jets used a four-minute drive to set up a Chandler Catanzaro field goal that tied the score and got the ball right back as the Jaguars inexplicably called three straight passes that went incomplete to hand the ball back to the Jets after 20 seconds. The Jets (1-2) pulled off a stunner of their own last week with a 20-6 dominant victory over the Miami Dolphins and play host to the Jags. Powell, who had 72 yards in the first three games of the season combined, was credited with the second-longest run in team history, the longest since Bruce Harper went for 78 yards in 1983. Despite Matt Forte being sidelined with turf toe, Bilal Powell had a must-see 75-yard touchdown run and rookie Elijah McGuire had a 69-yarder - the first of his career - for a ground attack that had a season-high 256 yards.

Powell had 110 rushing yards at the half, the first Jet to clear 100 in the first half since Thomas Jones in 2009.

But New York blew a 10-point, fourth-quarter lead because of some big mistakes - and then had to hold on in the extra period. That led to Catanzaro's 26-yard field goal that gave NY a 20-10 lead.

It came down to a battle of field position and a 70-yard punt by Lac Edwards pinned the Jaguars deep near their end zone. That put the visitors right back in things as the Jets' lead was pared to 20-17 with 10:20 to play.

The play was reviewed, though replays provided an inconclusive look at whether Campbell's helmet made contact with Powell's shin.

A backwards pass from McCown to Powell was picked up by Jacksonville's Myles Jack and returned 81-yards for a touchdown. But the Jets took a delay-of-game penalty, and then Catanzaro missed a 45-yard field-goal attempt wide left. 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.
