The New York Jets were looking at fourth-and-really long

Post by liny195 » Tue Dec 17, 2019 3:20

— and another brutal loss to the Miami Dolphins.Until a controversial call changed it all.Sam Ficken kicked a 44-yard field goal as time expired to give the Jets a 22-21 comeback victory Sunday after they benefited when an incomplete pass was reviewed in New York and a rare game-altering pass interference ruling on Miami was added.“I thought it was pass interference Jamison Crowder Jerseys 2019 ," Darnold said. “And, obviously, they overturned it."Darnold got the winning drive going with a short pass to Vyncint Smith, who turned it into a 37-yard gain that included a high-step over a would-be tackler. After a sack by Andrew Van Ginkel two plays later put the ball at the Dolphins 46, Darnold threw an incomplete pass to Smith.But, the Jets argued Nik Needham interfered with the receiver by wrapping his right arm around Smith's right shoulder.“I knew it was pass interference from the beginning," Smith said. “I think I had one earlier in the game that they didn't call, so I was upset they weren't calling that one, either.”But the play went to a video review at the league office and the interference call was added — giving the Jets a first down and new life.“Honestly, it's just trash,” Needham said.A 12-yard catch by Ty Montgomery got the ball to the 26. Two plays later, Ficken won it, helping the Jets (5-8) avoid a season series sweep by the lowly Dolphins (3-10).“This one feels really good," said Ficken, who made three field goals but missed an extra point. "This is definitely the best moment I've had in my pro career "Miami coach Brian Flores appeared incensed as the game ended, with TV cameras catching him shouting his displeasure at one of the officials. He refused to discuss the overturned call with reporters.“We lost the game,” Flores said. “I was upset we lost the game."Added Needham: “How else am I supposed to get to the receiver? He's in front of me. I can't run through him. I have to get around him to get the ball out. Yeah, so it's a P.I. in their house."Al Riveron, the NFL's senior vice president of officiating White Spencer Long Jerseys , said the call was made by New York by rule with the game having under two minutes left. All reviews are done in the booth and/or in New York.“It was clear and obvious that the receiver did get significantly hindered prior to the ball getting there," Riveron told a pool reporter.The Jets — who lost to the previously winless Cincinnati Bengals last week — overcame a Dolphins franchise-record seven field goals by Jason Sanders, including a 37-yarder that gave Miami the lead with 1:33 left.Sanders kicked a 48-yarder to put the Dolphins up 18-16 with 6:59 remaining, but Ficken's 42-yarder gave New York the lead again with 4:05 left.STATSDarnold, who injured his right hand at the beginning of the fourth quarter, was off on a few of his late passes but finished 20 of 36 for 270 yards and touchdowns to Demaryius Thomas and Robby Anderson. Darnold also was intercepted once.Anderson had seven catches for 116 yards and the score. Bilal Powell, starting in place of the ill Le'Veon Bell, had 74 yards on 19 carries before leaving on the final drive with an ankle injury.Ryan Fitzpatrick was 21 of 37 for 245 yards with an interception for Miami, playing without top receivers DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson who both left with concussions.MORE CALLSThe Jets took a 16-6 lead with 1:55 left in the opening half on Thomas' 14-yard touchdown catch, his first for New York. The initial call of an incomplete pass was overturned by a video review as officials ruled Thomas had possession as he was tackled by Needham while falling into the end zone.New York nearly had another score a few plays later when James Burgess intercepted Fitzpatrick and took it into the end zone, but the Jets linebacker was called for defensive holding — negating the turnover.Miami ended up getting a 28-yard field goal from Sanders with 19 seconds remaining in the half to cut the deficit to 16-9.SIDELINED STARSThe Jets were without two of their best players with both Bell and safety Jamal Adams sitting out.Bell was ruled out Saturday because of what Gase said after the game is the flu. He practiced fully Wednesday, but then sat out Thursday and Friday.Adams was officially ruled inactive 90 minutes before the game after he missed practice all week with a sprained ankle. It was the first game Adams has missed in his three-year NFL career.INJURIESDolphins: Parker went out with a concussion in the second quarter, and Wilson in the third. ... TE/FB Chandler Cox injured a shoulder in the fourth quarter.Jets: TE Ryan Griffin left with an ankle injury on New York's opening drive and didn't return. ... DL Quinnen Williams suffered a burner in the third quarter and didn't return. ... CB Kyron Brown was in crutches in the locker room after hurting his left quadriceps in the fourth quarter.UP NEXTDolphins: play at MetLife Stadium again next Sunday to take on the Giants.Jets: travel to Baltimore to take on Lamar Jackson and the Ravens on Thursday night.—- EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Aaron Rodgers refused to sit this one out, even with the playoffs out of the question. And he willed the Green Bay Packers from setting some dubious franchise history.A banged-up Rodgers threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams with 6:23 left in overtime, capping an eye-popping performance by leading the Packers to a wild 44-38 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday.More Packers coverage from FOX Sports WisconsinBucks’ Wes Matthews loves Wisconsin, is a Vikings fanPreview: Packers look to slow Vikings’ revitalized run gameTop Tweets: Yelich thanks fans for support after season-ending injuryAmos sparks rebuilt Packers defense in debutPackers to be tested again by familiar foe in Zimmer, VikingsThe win was the Packers’ first on the road this season — snapping a nine-game skid away from Lambeau Field dating to last season — and it prevented them from becoming the first Green Bay squad since 1958 to go an entire season without a win away from home.“It’s good for the young guys to see what the locker room on the road feels like with a win, what the plane flight feels like Spencer Long Jerseys 2019 ,” Rodgers said. “How special that plane ride is after a road victory.”And this one was all on Rodgers, who was masterful in the fourth quarter and the overtime period for the Packers (6-8-1).He threw for 442 yards and touchdowns to Adams and Jake Kumerow, and also ran for two scores — his first since the 2016 season. That’s despite a groin issue that nagged him last week, and a knee ailment that has bothered him all season. Rodgers was intent on playing, and believed it proved something.“That it matters, even when the record isn’t great and you’re not going to the playoffs,” he said. “That I have a lot of pride. I love competing in anything. I don’t want to look back in 20 years and wonder, ‘What if I had played that game? Could something special have happened? What would it look like to my teammates if they knew I kind of quit on them?’ I hope my teammates know I’m never going to quit on them.“I’m going to battle through anything I’ve got, and they did the same.”They certainly did, erasing a 15-point fourth-quarter deficit and improving to 2-1 under interim coach Joe Philbin, who replaced the fired Mike McCarthy earlier this month.“I think it speaks a lot about the character of the guys,” Philbin said. “They never stopped believing that they could get the job done.”The loss for the Jets (4-11) overshadowed a dazzling performance by rookie quarterback Sam Darnold, who threw for a career-high 341 yards — but never got a chance with the ball in overtime. Darnold was 24 of 35 passing with TDs to Robby Anderson, Chris Herndon and Elijah McGuire, who also ran for a score.“As an offense, we’ve just got to finish,” Darnold said. “We had a chance to put the game away.”It was also likely the final home game for coach Todd Bowles, who’s expected to be fired after next week’s game at New England.The Jets were done in by penalties, getting called for a whopping 16 that cost them 172 yards. Bowles was critical of the officiating crew White Andre Roberts Jerseys , saying some of the calls against New York shouldn’t have happened.“I haven’t seen one like that in my 18, 19 years in the league,” Bowles said. “I thought we were playing two teams: I thought we were playing the Packers and the striped shirts.”After the Packers won the OT toss and elected to receive, Rodgers took over — as he has so many times throughout his career.On third-and-10 from the Packers 40, Rodgers got hit as he was throwing and his pass to Marquez Valdes-Scantling hung in the air and fell incomplete — but Trumaine Johnson was called for pass interference, putting the ball at the Jets 27. Moments later, a pass interference call on Buster Skrine gave the Packers the ball at the 6.Rodgers ran it in — but right tackle Bryan Bulaga was called for holding. On the next play, Rodgers found Adams in the back of the end zone for the rare road victory.“It would have been pretty pathetic if would have gone the entire season without one,” Adams said.That all came after Rodgers went over a pile and reached past the goal line for a go-ahead 1-yard touchdown with 1:13 left in regulation, giving Green Bay its first lead. Rodgers’ initial 2-point conversion try was intercepted by Darryl Roberts — but Roberts was called for defensive holding. Rodgers then ran it in to make it 38-35, finishing off a terrific drive that included a 23-yard run to get the ball to the 1.Andre Roberts, selected to his first Pro Bowl earlier in the week, returned the ensuing kickoff 51 yards to put the Jets in good shape. Darnold completed passes of 9 and 14 yards to get the Jets to the Green Bay 15. But three straight passes fell incomplete and New York settled for a tying 33-yard field goal by Jason Myers with 17 seconds left in regulation.SPECIAL SPECIAL TEAMSRoberts returned a kickoff 99 yards for a score late in the first half, the second of his career, to highlight a solid outing by New York’s special teams unit.Rontez Miles took a direct snap on a punt on fourth-and-1 from the Jets 31 in the fourth quarter and ran up the middle for 4 yards and a first down. Anthony Wint also forced a fumble on a kickoff earlier in the game.The one hiccup came on the game’s opening drive, when Jason Myers — picked for his first Pro Bowl — was wide left on a 45-yard attempt.LEO LOSES COOLJets defensive end Leonard Williams was ejected after throwing a punch at Bulaga in the second quarter. The penalty gave the Packers the ball at the Jets 7.Jamaal Williams took the ensuing handoff, stayed in bounds after a hit by Jamal Adams and stretched his body — and the ball — over the goal line for a TD that made it 21-14 with 1:33 left.INJURIESPackers LG Lane Taylor hurt a knee in the first quarter and CB Jaire Alexander injured his groin in the first half. Neither returned.UP NEXTPackers: Host Detroit next Sunday.Jets: At New England next Sunday.
