Jets set franchise record with 20 penalties

By Ohm Youngmisuk

The New York Jets were flagged a franchise-record 20 times.

The last time a team won with that many penalties was in 1951 when the Cleveland Browns overcame that many flags according to Elias Sports Bureau.

Oh, and there were two other penalties against the Jets but one was wiped away by offsetting penalties and another was declined by the Bills.

“What can I say about that?” tight end Kellen Winslow said of all the penalties. “Especially that one (fourth quarter) drive. I mean come on. It was beyond ridiculous. The league needs to take a look at that because that can’t happen. Let us play, ya know? Every play was like a call. It must have been six or seven calls. Come on, you got to let us play a little bit. I’ll leave it at that.”

Here’s each penalty:

FIRST QUARTER
1. WR Santonio Holmes is flagged for offensive holding (10 yards) on a first-and-10 at the Buffalo 32.
2. OL Vladimir Ducasse is flagged for a false start (5 yards) on a second-and-3 at the Bills' 3.
