Jets coach Todd Bowles explained his curious clock management at the end of the first half, when he passed up a chance to have a meaningful possession. Bowles said QB Josh McCown was "pretty banged up" at the time and he just wanted to get to halftime. That's why he didn't use a timeout, opting to let Denver milk the clock before a FG. Bowles also said, "At the rate we were playing, we needed to go in and regroup."

Jay Gruden said he thought about going for a two-point conversion after Bashaud Breeland's interception return for a touchdown made it 30-12.

Gruden said he didn't want to risk further injuries by trying to extend the game. "I wanted to get out of the game, get back on the plane and get ready for Arizona," he said.
