Todd Bowles says referees were targeting Jets with penalties

The Jets were called for 16 penalties for a total of 172 yards in the six-point loss, including three critical calls in the fourth quarter while the Packers were storming back and three more in the extra period.

On the Packers' winning drive - and the only possession of overtime - Green Bay faced a third-and-10 from its 40 when Aaron Rodgers' pass to Marquez Valdes-Scantling hung in the air and fell incomplete - but Trumaine Johnson was called for pass interference, putting the ball at the Jets 27. "Could something special have happened and what would it have looked like to my teammates if they knew I kind of quit on them'". "I can't explain them all".

Bowles said he expects to be fined for his comments, but that the officiating was "ridiculous" enough that he felt he had to say something about it following what might have been his final home game in his current job.

What followed was one of the more exciting games of the year in a 44-38 victory over the Jets. "I thought we were playing the Packers and the striped shirts".

Darnold was 24 of 35 passing with TDs to Robby Anderson, Chris Herndon and Elijah McGuire, who also ran for a score.




Jim Harbaugh has insisted he's staying put, but that won't stop an NFL team from trying to lure him back to the league.

That is a rare display of emotion for Bowles.

After two incompletions, Jamaal Williams was met up the middle by Frankie Luvu for no gain. Let's be real, it was likely sealed long before Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers led a vintage drive in overtime to hit wideout Davante Adams for the game victor on Sunday afternoon. Brown late in the first half, Bulaga and Jets defensive end Leonard Williams got into a shoving match - and Williams was ejected for throwing a punch. "All has been said, so I'm done with it", he said. "I wish I could've been there for my teammates, especially in this good game - it was a close game".

Rodgers previously hit all three marks in an October 2011 win over the Denver Broncos. "And I'll go from there".

"But we just have to keep working and see our way through the storm".
