They were no match for the Broncos on Sunday.
McCown finished 6-of-12 for 46 yards and an interception before being finished off by a suddenly rejuvenated Broncos pass rush.
McCown was taken to the locker room in the third quarter.
This was the way the Denver Broncos thought they'd play against that other NY team all those months ago. Those who took the field had no life, emotion or energy in an ugly 23-0 loss to the Broncos.

The national meteorological service has also issued a status orange low temperature weather warning for the country. Met Eireann says: "Significant falls of snow are expected Saturday night and into Sunday".
McCown passed for one touchdown and rushed for two others in the Jets' 38-31 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, a performance that perhaps aided in the decision of coach Todd Bowles naming the 38-year-old as the team's starting quarterback for the rest of the season. His first half consisted of three completions and two turnovers.
In relief of McCown, Petty went 1-for-1 throwing the ball, completing passes to fullback Lawrence Thomas and tight end Neal Sterling, although the Sterling reception was called back due to an illegal formation.
With their season on the line, the Jets put together arguably their worst showing of the season. The former was once benched for Brock Osweiler, while the latter has had more than a few vanishing acts this season.
It was the 56th career receiving touchdown for Thomas, moving him past Shannon Sharpe for No. 2 on the Broncos' all-time list.
He was injured in the second quarter after he scrambled eight yards on third-and-4 for a first down.

Over the weekend, Israeli airstrikes hit several militant sites in Gaza in response to rocket fire, killing two Hamas militants. "There seems to be a change, a paradigm here in how these terror tunnels will be able to threaten us in the future", he said.
The Broncos (3-9) head into their game against the New York Jets (5-7) in an unusual position - underdogs at home by 1½ points.
But for a team that prides itself on giving it their all each and every week, the Jets simply didn't show up. The team initially announced that he is questionable to return, but quickly downgraded McCown to out for the remainder of the game and announced after that he suffered a broken hand in the contest.
- The last time the Jets were shutout happened in October of 2014 in San Diego.
- The slow start really doomed Gang Green.
Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse are the first pair of Jets receivers to post consecutive 100-yard games since Don Maynard and George Sauer in 1967.
