Geno Smith threw for 2 touchdown passes to David Nelson and ran for another score and the Jets beat the Cleveland Browns 24-13 on Sunday. Smith had his first game with at least 2 TD passes since October, with no turnovers or sacks. The rookie was 20/36 for 214 yards and also ran for 48 yards including a 17-yard score in the fourth quarter.
Chris Ivory rushed for 109 yards on 20 carries for the Jets, who were eliminated from the playoff picture last week. Nelson, who was cut by the Browns after training camp, finished with 4 catches for 33 yards.
And, Rex Ryan continued to be a part of the on and off the field drama as a published report attributed statements he made during a team meeting on Saturday night that the "word on the street" is he's out after next Sunday's game at Miami. None of the players or Ryan would address the subject following the game. Also, Ryan got up in the face of the Side Judge after Geno Smith was pushed while out of bounds by Tashaun Gipson which angered the Jets sideline, including Rex who was fired-up and almost made contact with the official. A moment later, Gipson was flagged for unnecessary roughness which put the ball at the Browns 14. Nick Folk then kicked a 21-yard field goal as time expired to head into the locker room tied at 10.
