Dysfunction SkyCam temporarily halts Jets' third-quarter momentum

The New York Jets had a chance to take the lead in the third quarter against the Buffalo Bills when the SkyCam suddenly stopped working.

It was the worst timing, too, since the Jets were building momentum at the start of the second half and driving well into Bills' territory.

Roughly four minutes into the third quarter, the SkyCam unexpectedly dropped down and forced the officials to stop the game -- it appears the camera's wires got snapped, and the game had to be paused until the camera was fixed. The Jets were down 10-14 at the time.

After the camera was fixed, the Jets noticeably struggled to keep the drive going and ultimately ended up turning over the ball.

Luckily for New York, Sauce Gardner picked off Josh Allen on the Bills' ensuing drive and the Jets were back in business.

New York managed to score later in the third quarter thanks to a nifty James Robinson rushing touchdown, so the SkyCam didn't completely ruin the Jets' chances of winning this game.
