Jets miss field goals all over the place, but sneak past Browns…

Per Daily Campus:

The Jets Browns game was the most exciting game of the year so far. Both teams had many opportunities to win the game, but the most important play came with about a minute and a half left in overtime when Mark Sanchez threw an interception to Cleveland’s Joe Haden at the Brown’s 3-yard line. The game was a back-and-forth affair. The Jets dominated the last half of the second quarter and most of the third quarter with a drive that lasted more than 10 minutes, yet yielded them no points.

The 37-yard touchdown pass from Sanchez to Santonio Holmes bailed out Nick Folk, who missed a career-high three field goals. After a 53-yard punt by Reggie Hodges, the Jet’s Jim Leonhard returned the ball 18 yards to the Brown’s 37-yard line. The next play Jets would score the winning touchdown. This is the first time in NFL history that a team has won consecutive road overtime games according to Elias Sports Bureau. The win puts the Jets at a record of 7-2, which is tied for the best record in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons, and the winner of tonight’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots.

Mark Sanchez played an outstanding game despite his calf injury midway through the second quarter. One would think after injuring his calf, Sanchez would have difficultly moving around in the pocket, but it was the complete opposite. Many times Sanchez looked to be sacked by the Browns defenders, but they could never get a clean hold of him. With the Jets deep in their own territory Shaun Rogers looked to have Sanchez sacked but he miraculously got away to find LaDainian Tomlinson for a 21-yard gain. If Sanchez had been sacked the Jets might well have lost the game. Next week the Jets will host the Houston Texans.
