Winning in the NFL is hard, and no one knows that better than Jets QB Josh McCown. Before yesterday, he had lost 27 of 29 games, going back to his two seasons with the Browns. He hopes yesterday can be a confidence builder for the Jets. "With this group, as young as we are, it was important for us to get that first win," he said today. "I was in a situation in Cleveland where it dragged out for some time." He meant last season, when they started 0-14 and finished 1-15.

"That same passion has been with us since."
