The New York Jets and Detroit Lions fought an epic battle resulting in a clutch overtime Jets victory. In a game filled with miscues and a plethora of penalties, the Jets found a way to right their anemic offense and drive down the field when they needed to the most.
This contest also featured a battle of the first two quarterbacks taken in the 2009 draft: Matthew Stafford (first overall) and Mark Sanchez (fifth overall). Both young QBs performed well and showed their ever growing potential to be future stars in the league.
After a pathetic offensive showing in a Halloween-horror last Sunday, the Jets offense was reeling and needed a big performance to boost some confidence.
The Jets defense seems to get better with every game as they continue to make their case as the best defensive unit in the league.
The Jets are now 6-2 and again sitting on top of the AFC East as the Patriots fell to the Browns.
Here's a breakdown of the Jets win.
