The Jets waste seconds trying to call a timeout. Here comes the kick, should be a relatively easy 37-yarder.
Great play by Demario Davis to run down Jackson. Impressive hustle and speed to bring down a wide receiver like that.

Bilal Powell makes his biggest play of the game, catching a long screen pass that puts the Jets well into field-goal range. The Jets cannot afford to make a mistake here with the lead a field goal away.
Call is overruled. Rex wins his first challenge of the season.
Looks like we're getting a challenge on a ruled incompletion to Stephen Hill. Looks like this one is getting overruled, as the ball never hit the ground.

Adrian Clayborn gets pressure on Geno Smith once again. He has been disruptive in the second half, and the Jets offense has stalled as a result.
However, a ticky-tack holding call in the secondary keeps the drive alive for the Jets. It may not matter if they don't improve their pass protection.
12:00 4th QTR
Josh Freeman has been far from perfect, but he has not had a ton of help from his offensive line. The Jets blitzes are hitting home, but he had made a handful of elusive plays to extend drives.
He was not able to on that last third down, however, overthrowing Jackson along the sideline. The Jets get decent field position as they try to finally take the lead.

Damon Harrison has had a great day at nose tackle for the Jets. Amazing that he went undrafted. Doug Martin has had no room to run all day.
However,the Bucs are able to beat the Jets' blitz yet again to hit Jackson again for the first down.
