Jets head coach Todd Bowles is happy his team won their second straight game, but it isn't something to revel over in his mind.
The Jets squeaked out a 23-20 win in overtime over the Jaguars Sunday, improving to 2-2 on the season. However, Bowles believes his team still has work to do if they want to keep the streak going.
"Well, we were once a winless club, and we know how that feels," Bowles told NJ.com's Darryl Slater. "We've only won two games. We've got nothing to get big-headed about. We've got a lot of work to do."
Mistakes were made on Sunday that forced the game to overtime. The Jets missed out on points after intercepting the Jaguars on the 7-yard line. They failed to score a touchdown, and Chandler Catanzaro missed a field goal. A 20-10 lead was blown, and Bowles knows that cannot happen again.
"We can't get away with winning a lot of games making those mistakes," Bowles said. "That's aprt of doing the little things right. When you have a chance to put a team away, you've got to put them away. It's hard to win in this league, so when you get someboyd down, you've got to kick them while they're down. We didn't do that this game, but we pulled out a win. Going forward, we need to make those type of plays to close people out."
The Jets will take the win, though, as they head to Cleveland aiming to extend their streak to three games. The Browns are 0-4 on the season.
"We're still figuring out who we are and what we can do well," Bowles said. "We're close to figuring out where we want to be."
