Raul Allegre tied the game with a field goal and won it in overtime, sending the Jets to the 1991 Wild Card game

Throwback Thursday: Raul Allegre Kicks the Jets to the Playoffs

Time for another edition of “Throwback Thursday”. Tonight, we are going back to an oldie but a goody from 23 years ago.

The date was December 22, 1991, and the site was Joe Robbie Stadium. The Jets were taking on the Miami Dolphins, and if they won, the Jets would head to the Wild Card game, sneaking in with the number six seed.

The Jets went ahead by a score 14-10 on a one yard touchdown run by Brad Baxter. They held the lead into the fourth quarter, when Dan Marino threw a one yard touchdown pass to Ferrell Edmunds.

The Jets were not to be kept down on this date.

Raul Allegre, formerly of the Giants, kicked the Jets into overtime with a 44 yard field goal to tie the game at 20. He followed that up in overtime with a 30 yard field goal to win the game, 23-20, and send the Jets into a wild card playoff game against the Oilers, which they lost 17-10.

But for one day, Jets fans were able to rejoice. Here is the boxscore:
