Powell registered 179 all-purpose yards, including 145 on the ground and 34 through the air.

"That was huge. I can't even describe the feeling", Leonard Williams said.

PETTY'S READY: Petty, a fourth-rounder from Baylor a year ago, will make his second National Football League start, but first since Bowles tapped him to be the Jets' quarterback for the final four games of the season. He was sacked six times, all in the first half. "The first half was probably about as ugly as I could play", he said. "I just think the Jets came out and played a little harder in the second half". "I think our team will be up for the game", reasoned Bowles. "We fought to the end".

Carlos Hyde ran for 193 yards on 17 attempts. The Jets won 23-17 in overtime. "We stress it", Rodgers said, noting the week's practices against their own offense usually produces bushels of takeaways.

Jets kicker Nick Folk connected from 30 yards with 6:28 left in the third quarter, cutting San Francisco's lead to 17-6. Bilal Powell's 5-yard touchdown run made it 17-12 with 5:09 remaining in the game. He also had an out-of-bounds kickoff that allowed the Jets to start a drive at the 40-yard line. "Let's not go by stats every week.' Because stats can get skewed by two games, [and] all of a sudden you've got two bad games and your stats are through the roof defensively, but you're not really that bad", Gailey assessed. Wilkerson and Deon Simon combined for what may have been a game-saving tackle. One play later, the 49ers scored a touchdown 63 seconds into the game. "The Jets just played good defense right there". Not taking anything away from them, they did a good job filling up all the holes. His biggest play might have been ill-advised as he threw across his body after scrambling in overtime to complete a 26-yard pass to Robby Anderson that helped set up the winning score.

Powell will be the second banana again soon enough and that likely won't change for the rest of the time he spends with the Jets. The play "took a lot of guts on his part", Bowles said. "That's kind of that feeling, the butterflies in your stomach, I just have to be able to control those and be able to use those as a positive thing rather than a negative thing". Especially when the "cheap shots" become the go-to drink for fans as time winds down in the second half every Sunday because they already know what's coming.

This was a Jets team that was humiliated on Monday Night Football, had to fly across the country on a short week and played their backup quarterback. Colin Kaepernick found Hyde in the flat for the TD on the next play to give San Francisco the lead. But He's been bottled up lately with just 52 total yards against New England and then Indianapolis. This was their record-tying ninth loss this season after scoring first as the pattern of fast starts and second-half duds continued under first-year coach Chip Kelly.

Buster Skrine: Skrine unfortunately left the game with an injury, but it was a rough one for him when he was in there. 49ers OT Joe Staley (hamstring) was inactive, ending his streak of 100 straight starts, including eight in the playoffs.
