Jets remain poised to forge comeback
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Jets made a strong statement to themselves — and maybe the rest of the NFL — with a big bounce-back second half.
Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for two touchdowns and ran for one as New York overcame Washington.
"Every win's not going to be pretty," Jets coach Todd Bowles said. "We're going to make some mistakes, but how we come back from it and how we grow as a team moving forward is what's going to make us a decent team."
Washington led 13-10 at halftime, with its points coming off an interception and two fumble recoveries by cornerback Bashaud Breeland. But the team couldn't hang on without several injured starters, including wide receiver DeSean Jackson, left tackle Trent Williams and cornerbacks DeAngelo Hall and Chris Culliver.
