This was a game where both teams were off their game for the majority and kicked it into gear late. Neither team scored in the first quarter as the Jets haven't allowed a first-quarter point all season.
Both teams had two poor drives to start the game and Mark Sanchez looked terrible. Sanchez threw two interceptions in the game, snapping a string of 184 straight passes without one.
Before he threw the interceptions, the Broncos had a chance to intercept Sanchez multiple times. The Broncos fumbled the ball on their first drive as Knowshon Moreno gave it up to Darrelle Revis.
The big moment in the first quarter was the Broncos messing up a 28-yard field goal attempt. Snapper Britton Colquitt fumbled the ball and the Jets recovered the ball.
After having all sorts of trouble moving the ball early on, Sanchez put together a great drive heading into the second quarter. It ended on a 32-yard pass to Braylon Edwards into the end zone for a touchdown, giving the Jets a 7-0 lead.
The following drive for Denver was just as productive as they tied the game at 7-7. Tim Tebow stunned the Jets by playing a big part in the early going, running in a five-yard touchdown to immediately even the score. It was Tebow's first career touchdown.
At the end of the second, Broncos kicker Matt Prater launched a 59-yard field goal to send the game to halftime, 10-7 Denver. It was tied for the eighth-longest field goal in NFL history.
The Broncos got the ball to begin the third and Prater had an opportunity to kick another field goal. This time, he missed from only 49 yards out and the Jets were still within three.
The Jets tied the game at 10-10 on a Nick Folk 56-yard field goal, the longest in Jets history and the longest of his career. Folk continues to have a fantastic season, having kicked five field goals last week.
With about 1:30 to go in the third, the Broncos put together a five play, 37-yard drive to take a 17-10 lead. The touchdown from Orton to Darius Thomas looked questionable but the Jets had already lost a challenge and didn't want to lose another timeout.
The Jets did a good job of keeping the game within seven points until they finally tied the game at 17-17. LaDainian Tomlinson broke off a 20-yard run to tie the score with 8:30 to go.
Trailing 20-17 after a Broncos field goal, the Jets caught a huge break. On fourth-and-six, with one play to go in the game, Sanchez passed a ball 46 yards downfield to the Denver two-yard line.
Santonio Holmes didn't make the catch but a pass interference was enforced on Renaldo Hill as he grabbed the face mask. One play later, Tomlinson ran it in for a touchdown, giving the Jets a 24-20 lead.
The Jets would win it by that score as Kyle Orton on third-and-six fumbled the ball at the Jets 44 to end the game. The Jets are now 3-0 on the road this season.
