I think that it was more of confusion on the part of the Jets. Usually when the Bengals get down they pass, pass, pass. Today they stayed calm, and continued to chop away at the lead. Also, the Jets had to prepare in case Rudi played as well. They probably assumed Rudi would get the start, and were gameplanning for that.
