If the New York Jets lost to the Cleveland Browns, they would have heard it like there is no tomorrow. Luckily, they finally brought some much-needed attitude to the table.

The New York Jets defeated the Cleveland Browns to the final tune of 31-28. That first half will forever be remembered as one of the worst you’ll see by the Jets. But it’s not always how you start but how you finish in the grand scheme of things.

The Jets looked like a completely different team in the second half against the Browns. Their offense actually kept those chains moving and scored touchdowns. Their defense tightened up and started playing with aggression. Head coach Todd Bowles made the necessary adjustments and the Jets barely escaped the biggest loss they’d probably have this decade to the worst team in the NFL.

Sometimes when you’re down and out, it takes that natural feeling of remembering what exactly it is you’re playing for to get inspired again. It’s no secret that the Jets will more than likely not be an NFL Playoff-caliber team but that doesn’t mean they have to tank the season. There is still a lot of fight left in this team and at the end of the day, that could be just enough to put this team back in the right direction.

The Jets can’t worry about the playoffs at this point in time, however. This season must be taken one week at a time as they now shift their focus to the Miami Dolphins and then the Los Angeles Rams. These are two very winnable games the Jets need to come out on top of before their bye week.

This mid-season momentum of the Jets couldn’t have come at a better time. Now, they can start to string along some winning streaks and have something to play for. Should the Jets beat the Dolphins and Rams respectively, they’d be back at .500 for the season.

Overall, this newfound attitude should fuel the Jets from here on out. The time to play fired up and with pride has begun and hopefully, the Jets can keep pushing forward in a positive manner.
