Jets win another close one

By Marc A. Greenberg

Oops, they did it again.

Twice in the past three weeks, the Jets have managed to do what no previous Jets team could do: Steal one in the end on the road.

First the Mile High Miracle with the pass interference call on the deep throw by Mark Sanchez to Santonio Holmes; and now with 10 points in the final 3 minutes, and then Sanchez to Holmes again to provide the win in overtime.

As a Jets fan, you can wake up today nervous.

As a Jets fan, you can wake up today believing.

It’s up to you. Because with this team, this coach, and this new attitude, who knows what to think anymore.

But keep this in mind; after yesterday’s 23-20 overtime comeback victory over the Lions at Ford Field, the Jets are 6-2 and tied for first place in the AFC East at the halfway mark of the season.

“Obviously, we feel fortunate we got the win, but we don’t care,” Rex Ryan said.

Five fumbles, 11 penalties for 99 yards, and trailing the now 2-6 Lions, 20-10 with 4:26 remaining in regulation and with one timeout remaining sounds like a past Jets boxscore.

23-20 victory looks like a present one.
