Jets QB Bryce Petty rebounded from last Monday night's poor performance against the Colts during Sunday's overtime win against the 49ers.
Petty went 23 of 35 for 257 yards while throwing no touchdowns and one interception -- which came on his first pass of the game.
He helped lead two fourth quarter scoring drives, the first being a 66-yard touchdown drive which was capped by Petty running in a two-point conversion. He then drove the Jets 33 yards, resulting in Nick Folk's game-tying field goal with 38 seconds remaining.
"He was up and down," head coach Todd Bowles told reporters about Petty. "He had some plays he'd like to have back. He made some throws. He made some dangerous throws -- he got away with some things -- but he settled down and made some gutsy plays."
Last week, Petty was named the starting quarterback for the remainder of the season, replacing Ryan Fitzpatrick.

I can break down each of Petty's throws, how he read the defense and his movement in and out of the pocket, but nothing is more of a game-changer than what he showed on one specific play. Watch out, NFL … Petty has moxie!
The trouble with moxie is that it actually has a negative reputation. Fans associate it with the Brooks Bollingers and Greg McElroys of the world. Displaying moxie means you showed grit and determination to overcome your shortcomings, rather than being seen as something which will help a player's longer-term development as they improve upon their skills >> Click here to read this week's full BGA on the performance of Petty and the rest of the Jets!
