Vikings Vs. Jets Monday Night Football: Game Over
The Jets defense stepped up.
Dwight Lowery undercut a pass to Visanthe Shiancoe and returned it 26 yards for a touchdown, finally hammering the last nail in the Vikings' coffin tonight. That was the third Vikings turnover - the third Favre turnover - in this game, while the Jets had none. Sometimes games are as simple as that, three turnovers to none.
The Vikings had chances to win, to overcome their own inefficiency, but they eventually fell short. They fall to 1-3 and will host the 1-3 Dallas Cowboys next week. Another week for Randy Moss to acclimate himself to the offense will do good. There is time to recover for Minnesota, the season isn't lost. But the wins need to start coming in bunches and soon.
The Jets improve to 4-1 and stay atop the AFC. Sanchez had a somewhat erratic game and the defense had a rough stretch for a period in the second half, but every unit ended up contributing to this win. The special teams (with five field goals and a long Brad Smith return), the passing game (Santonio Holmes had a good debut in green), the running game (155 rushing yards on 32 carries), and most of all defense (4 sacks, 8 quarterback hits, 9 passes defended, and one game-sealing touchdown).
The Jets should be very happy with this win and their team. Things are looking up in New York.
