BALTIMORE — Jamison Crowder had one of the quickest rebounds after a miscue in sports history Thursday night.

The Jets wide receiver dropped a wide-open touchdown pass at the start of the second quarter, but made a tough catch for a 4-yard score on the next play for his team’s only points in the first half.

“With the drop, I was like, ‘Damn, how did I drop this pass?’ ” Crowder said. “I think I took my eye off the ball for a quick second. I just knew that it would come back around and it came back instantly. When I had the drop, as soon as I caught that touchdown pass, I forgot about that play.”

The touchdown was set up by Crowder’s 41-yard catch-and-run that put the Jets at the Ravens’ 9. Crowder had six catches for 90 yards and two touchdowns in the game. But it was the missed opportunities that Crowder and his offensive teammates were left to think about after. The Jets could not convert a fourth-and-1 at the end of the first half and had two turnovers in the game.

“That’s tough,” Crowder said. “That’s one of the things we’ve got to improve on if we want to be a team to get into the playoffs. We’ve got to be better in those situations, end-of-half situations, fourth down, third-and-short situations. We’ve got to continue to make progress going forward and be a better offense in those situations.”


LB Neville Hewitt was called for a critical pass interference penalty in the second quarter. Hewitt was flagged for interfering with Marquise Brown in the end zone, which gave the Ravens the ball on the 1-yard line and led to a Baltimore touchdown.

“I’m running with him so long by the time he looked back, I’m thinking the ball’s already coming down, so I was trying to play through his hands, but I guess I was there too early,” Hewitt said.

Jets coach Adam Gase said his team was in a Tampa-2 zone defense that had Hewitt playing deep and that is why he ended up on Brown, a less-than-ideal matchup.


Jets color analyst Marty Lyons worked the game with a heavy heart after his younger brother, Phil Lyons, died Wednesday at 57 of a massive heart attack. “I got the word before I left New York, talked with his family and decided he would want me to do the game,” Lyons said.


WR Jeff Smith (ankle) was injured in the game and will undergo tests Friday … The Jets placed TE Ryan Griffin on season-ending injured reserve before the game. They activated OL Brent Qvale off IR and he played. … S Jamal Adams (ankle) missed a second consecutive game. DL Quinnen Williams (neck), WR Demaryius Thomas (knee, hamstring), RB Bilal Powell (ankle, illness), CB Brian Poole (concussion), OL Chuma Edoga (knee) and CB Arthur Maulet (calf) were all inactive.


The Jets had their first blocked punt for a touchdown since 2013 in the fourth quarter. Tarell Basham blocked SamKoch’s punt with 12:13 left from the Ravens 28. B.J. Bello recovered it at the 14 and ran it in for the score. The last time the Jets had a blocked punt for a score was Dec. 8, 2013, when Antonio Allen blocked the kick and scored against the Raiders.
