The Jets played some flag football in Saturday night’s 25-17 preseason victory over the Bengals.

The Jets drew 12 penalties for 133 yards in the game. Seven of those penalties were personal fouls that cost them 15 yards apiece, with one declined.

After the game, several Jets said the game was a bit chippy because they still were smarting from last year’s 49-9 regular-season loss to the Bengals.

“We got embarrassed the last time we were here,” said guard Willie Colon, who had two penalties. “There are no ifs, ands or buts about it. They beat us up. We looked at that tape. That wasn’t the Jets team we want to be. They’re a playoff-contending team. We’re trying to make that next step.”

Colon and tackle Breno Giacomini were hit with personal fouls after Geno Smith threw an interception. Giacomini hit cornerback Terence Newman, who had picked off the ball, and then Bengals defensive end Margus Hunt drilled him from behind. That got Colon fired up. He ran over to defend Giacomini and the two teams started fighting.

“The main thing was our guys were protecting each other,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said. “Sometimes we’ve got to look at them, did we cross the line a little bit? We’ll certainly look at it and address it. We want to be as physical a football team as we can be within the rules. Again, we’re not here to take anything from anybody. If a teammate’s at risk, we’re not going to take that.”
