Recap


Jets 24, Browns 13: Geno Smith threw two touchdown passes to David Nelson and ran for another score as New York overcame an early deficit to win its home finale.

Smith completed 20-of-36 passes for 214 yards and picked up 48 rushing yards - including 17 on a touchdown run to clinch it - as part of a ground attack that outrushed Cleveland 208-115. Chris Ivory led the way with 109 yards on 20 carries for the Jets (7-8), who finished 6-2 at home.

Jason Campbell was 18-of-39 for 178 yards and an interception for the Browns (4-11), losers of six straight. Edwin Baker ran for 64 yards and a score while wide receiver Josh Gordon (97 yards) was held under 100 yards for the first time since Week 9.

The Jets had 68 total yards and trailed 10-0 more than halfway through the second quarter before a 13-play, 80-yard drive resulted in a 6-yard touchdown pass to Nelson, and a 79-yard march led to a last-second field goal by Nick Folk for a 10-10 halftime tie.

Smith finished another lengthy drive with another short scoring strike to Nelson with 14:14 left in the fourth. Cleveland was held to a field goal with 9:40 remaining after gaining first-and-goal and New York - which was 12-for-18 on third downs - put it away when Smith rumbled in with 3:19 to go.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Folk had been 31-for-32 before a 49-yard field-goal attempt in the third quarter hit the upright. ... WR Jeremy Kerley led New York with five catches for 70 yards. ... Cleveland ends its season next Sunday at Pittsburgh, while New York heads to Miami.
