Bilal Powell records second longest touchdown run in Jets history

The Jets got the W. But it wasn't easy.

A Jets win almost was sealed, following Josh McCown's 41-yard pass to Robby Anderson, which put the Jets in the red zone, but on the next play, the 38-year-old quarterback made his first error of the game, throwing a backward pass to Powell, who wasn't looking for the ball, allowing it to drop after hitting him in the shoulder. The Jets tied it 10-10 on a 45-yard field goal by Catanzaro with 1:11 remaining in the half. But after three exchanges of punts, the Jets were positioned to put it away and they did on Chandler Catanzaro's third field goal.

Both the New York Jets and the Jacksonville Jaguars posted resounding wins in Week 3 and will carry momentum into their game on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, CBS, DirecTV).

On the first play of the Jets' second drive, Powell ran for 8 yards and fell down, making Jacksonville's defense believe he'd been tackled, but Powell alertly got up and sprinted 75 yards for a touchdown, with no one ever touching him.

Referee Gene Steratore announced after the booth replay that Powell was not touched down and the TD call stood. It was upheld by video review, resulting in the Jets' longest touchdown run since Bruce Harper went 78 yards in 1983.

After a 41-yard completion to Robbie Anderson, the Jets looked poised to blow the game open at the start of the fourth quarter as they made their way to the Jaguars' 14-yard-line. Coming in this game, this New York Jets offense was considered mediocre at best.

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. Tomlinson hasn't played since suffering an elbow injury in the first game of the season. Jets punter Ryan Quigley squared up and completed a pass to "gunner" Marcus Williams, who ran it for a first down.

The turnover led to Jason Myers' game-tying 22-yard field goal with:46 seconds left that sent the game to overtime.

It put the ball on the Jacksonville 25, and after two 1-yard runs, Josh McCown spiked the ball to set up Catanzaro's field goal.

The quarterback kept the ball on a read-option. Ealy wound up with four PDs on the day. Down by 10 points in the fourth quarter, Bortles took matters into his own hands.

Despite some late blunders, the Jets improved to 2-2 on the season.
