Greats and Goats: Jets at Titans

Bilal Powell | New York Jets

The New York Jets were handed a crushing defeat on Sunday afternoon as they lost to the Tennessee Titans, 38-13 in a turnover filled game for the offense. The loss now puts Gang Green back at .500 with a record of 2-2.

While the Jets weren't out of the game until the second half, the contest was never really in doubt. Geno Smith turned the ball over four times and was forced to the ground for five sacks. One of the fumbles came on what some analysts have called Smith's best re-creation of the infamous butt-fumble. Altogether, turnovers cost the Jets 28 points and ultimately decided the game in favor of Tennessee.

GWR brings you the Greats and Goats of Week 4

GREATS

Bilal Powell, RB

- Powell has turned into a great weapon on an offense that has proved inconsistent all year long. One of the hottest fantasy pickups last week, Powell did his owners proud as he rushed for 66 yards and also recorded 42 receiving yards out of the backfield. His 4.7 yards per carry led the team for the day. While he failed to reach the end zone, Powell cannot be held liable, as Smith kept turning the ball over with the Jets driving. Powell has already surpassed his halfway total of last year's rushing mark. A few more games like this one and he will have set a new career-high.

Kellen Winslow, TE

- Where Powell is a safety blanket for Smith in the backfield, Winslow has become a dynamic player in the passing game. He was targeted nine times on Sunday and managed to catch six of those targets for over 70 yards. Slowly emerging as Smith's favorite receiver, Winslow is having a wonderful bounce back year after only recording one reception all last season.

GOATS

Geno Smith, QB

- While he is only a rookie, the New York Jets invested a lot in his young arm when they named him the starter prior to their Week One tilt. In four games this year, Smith has struggled with ball security and is near the top of the league in turnovers. With 11 total turnovers through four weeks, Smith is already on pace to surpass Mark Sanchez's turnover total from last season. Furthermore, Smith was sacked three times on the day. While that could be attributed to his lackluster offensive line, Smith must learn how to get rid of the ball even if it means throwing it out of bounds.
