After a three-touchdown performance in a comeback victory, Jets QB Josh McCown was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
The Jets were down 14-0 early in the first quarter, but that didn't stop McCown from leading a comeback. Relying on his favorite targets through the air -- Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse -- McCown racked up 331 yards on 26 of 36 for a 72.2 completion percentage.
Despite throwing for a touchdown, it was McCown using his legs to pick up his other two, including the game-winner. It was his second straight week with a QBR over 100 (109.8), but McCown was only focused on how the team bounced back from the deficit after the game.
"For us to take another step as a team, it's to handle those situations," McCown said. "It's to be down 14, it's to get into one of these games that are back and forth and find yourself on the winning end at the end."
The 38-year-old is also surprising his teammates with his play as it continues to stay high for the Jets this season.
"The dude's 38, but it looks like he's 26 out there," Kearse said. "He's been huge for us. His leadership throughout the week, throughout the whole season has just allowed us to continue to get better and better."
In 12 games so far this season, McCown has totaled 2,880 yards, 67.8 completion percentage, 18 touchdowns, 8 interceptions, and a 96.7 QBR.
