Bucs beat Jets, end five-game slide

EAST RUTHERFORD NJ – SEPTEMBER 8 Quarterback Geno Smith

With Mike Evans serving a one-game suspension, Godwin stepped into a starting role and filled in nicely.

Only one of them can win.

Despite a monster sack by Bucs' defensive end Will Clarke that dropped McCown for eight yards, the Jets would convert on third-and-14 to keep their drive alive just before the two-minute warning.

QB Josh McCown had a pass intercepted in the second quarter. But the production was especially putrid as it was a field goal fest for the first three quarters.

Essentially, this is going to be a revenge game for one side or the other.

Let's take a look at which teammates he'll need to help him as they try and get the team's third win of the season. Following today's disappointing performance, however, those slim hopes have now likely been dashed.

When Bucs linebacker Lavonte David recovered a fumble by Jets running back Bilal Powell after a pass reception, Tampa Bay drove for a 37-yard field goal by Murray, extending its lead to 9-3.

While his yardage totals offer the last three weeks aren't anything special, McCown has thrown six touchdowns compared to just one interception over that span. The Jets' offense has been inconsistent - and criticized - all season, as it's been known for being too vanilla and lacking explosive plays. They also had 5 penalties for 44 yards in the first half. Costly mistakes, conservative play calls, and lack of execution have hindered the Jets in each of their six losses, and Sunday was no different.

NY closed the margin on Josh McCown's 38-yard pass to Robby Anderson with 28 seconds remaining, but the Bucs recovered the ensuing onside kick. They'll return from their break to face a murderous stretch of schedule, beginning with consecutive home dates against the Carolina Panthers and Kansas City Chiefs.

Despite finishing with 275 yards to Tampa Bay's 271, the Jets failed to move the ball with any consistency for more than three quarters.
