OVER AND OVER: Would Edwards have tried that 53-yard FG attempt in overtime if the Jets needed a victory to secure a playoff berth? Interesting question.
Edwards knew the Jets had clinched a spot by virtue of the Bills' loss to the Steelers, so there was less risk involved for a long field goal. Edwards said he would have played it the same way even if they had been in a must-win situation
. Doug Brien's miss gave the Rams a short field, setting up the game-winning FG.
The coach admitted he was a "little concerned" about using Martin in a meaningless overtime, but he added, "We were trying to win the game."
