    Jets Come From Behind To Beat Dallas, 27-24

    posted by: Site Admin | 2 comments | Jets Regular Season

    This was definitely a season opener to remember, as the New York Jets snatched an improbable 27-24 win against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night after trailing by 14 points in the final quarter. First, WR Plaxico Burress, who had zero catches in the first half, caught a 26-yard touchdown pass from QB Mark Sanchez, cutting Dallas' lead to 7. Then, RB Joe McKnight blocked a punt that was taken back for a touchdown by СB Isaiah Trufant, tying the game. Finally, PK Nick Folk, a former Cowboy, booted a 50-yard field goal to win the game for New York on such an emotional day that marked the 10th Anniversary of 9/11.
