Jets QB Josh McCown led the offense in the team's first win of the season over the Dolphins, 20-6, on Sunday.
It was his first home game as a Jet, and McCown didn't disappoint. He was accurate, moved the ball around his receiving corps, and most importantly, he impressed head coach Todd Bowles.
"I thought he was very effecient," Bowles told Jets.com's Eric Allen. "Josh has been playing good for about three weeks in a row now. He controls the offense and he sees things. He's playing smart football."
McCown was slinging the ball all over the field, including a deep ball to WR Robby Anderson for a 69-yard touchdown. The play came right after RB Bilal Powell ripped a long run that would be called back by a holding penalty.
The 38-year-old quarterback didn't let the flag hold back the drive, and he responded with the shot downfield.
"It's a next play mentality, it's a next game mentality in this league," McCown said about the Anderson TD. "So we got right back in the huddle and got right back at it. Robby made a heck of a catch and score. I think that's good for us as we build."
With this performance, McCown is confident his unit can build off it and improve as the weeks go on.
"It's still a new group and we're still going to have bumps in the road," McCown said. "We have to start a lot faster than that, but there are enough good things. Obviously getting the win, we can build some confidence and keep going."
Though the offense was efficient, many still don't expect the Jets to continue winning this season. Don't tell McCown about the team's expectations.
"It was not an expectation that it was going to be hard to win a game this year," he said. "We expected to win games. We expect to win a lot of games."
McCown finished the day going 18-for-23 for 249 yards and one touchdown.
