Jets head coach Todd Bowles said Wednesday that McCown will be the team's starting quarterback for the rest of the season, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

While there was some thought the Jets would turn to one of their two younger quarterbacks once reaching the playoffs became unattainable, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg haven't given the organization reason to believe they can be anything much more than mediocre backups. McCown's strong play this season wasn't enough to keep the Jets in contention, but it has at least given them a fair shot to evaluate the rest of their roster, the pass catchers in particular. McCown will travel to Denver in Week 14 to take on a slumping Broncos defense that has allowed multiple touchdown passes in five straight games.
