What We Learned: Jets 23

Posted December 14, 2016

Fourth-and-1 [their fourth-and-2 stop from the Jets 37 in overtime] is what I'm used to seeing.

Petty, making the second National Football League start of his career Sunday against the 49ers, was anything but flawless. Bowles said rookie Brandon Shell, a fifth-rounder and the great-nephew of Art Shell, could start at right tackle if Breno Giacomini (back, shoulder, calf) and Brent Qvale (left hamstring) are unavailable.

"Obviously we want to win for ourselves because it's been way too long but when something like that happens, you know what it would mean to him and his family", receiver Torrey Smith said.

“Shoot, I think you just play QB and you go off your instincts, ” Petty said after the game. "I don't think there was one things that was, it just comes down to our execution and our ability to make plays when we have the opportunity". They remain a game back of Cleveland and a game ahead of Jacksonville. "You've got to give him credit for his guts, for Bryce". "I thought that got better".

The Jets cut San Francisco's lead to 14-3 with 7:28 left in the first half on Folk's 36-yard field goal.

Kaepernick had an okay day throwing the ball, completing 15 of 26 attempts for just 133 yards. We have to be able to change this course that we're on.

Jets running back Bilal Powell gained 19 of his 145 yards on the final carry of the game to sink the 49ers to their 12th straight loss, and a new low in a season chalked full of them. But when the 49ers needed just 2 more yards to extend the overtime-opening drive, Hyde was stuffed for no gain on a zone-read handoff from Kaepernick. None was better than a brilliant scramble and throw to Robby Anderson to set up the winning touchdown. "But he made a play and we're sitting here with a win".

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the 49ers are 3-point home favorites versus the Jets while the over/under now sits at 43.5 points. "I just tried to hit it up there and tried to get a push, but they did a good job there".

COACHING: FQuarterback Colin Kaepernick talks to 49ers coach Chip Kelly during the fourth quarter of Sunday's 23-17 defeat.

He rushed for only eight yards on three carries, and to add insult to the Forte injury, the Jets were, at that point, down 14-0. He looked very good creating yardage even when the run blocking wasn't great.

San Francisco took the opening kick in overtime, but Hyde was stopped for no gain on fourth-and-1 at the NY 36-yard line.

"Those are the bumps and bruises I'm going to take", Petty said. So we could take a little bit of pressure off of them by converting offensively. New York's seventh-round pick punted the rock a total of six times for an average of 40 yards per boot. "That was the one thing that was moving for us offensively, was Carlos running the ball".

Jets starting FB Matt Forte had to leave the 49ers game in the first quarter due to an injured knee.

"You got to chalk that up to Levi's Stadium", Dawson said. "I know that for a fact".
