Jay Feeley's game winning kick.
One name sums up this epic victory the Jets had in 2008: Brett Favre.
Before the 2008 season, the Jets were able to sign former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre. The Jets were rolling into Foxboro after winning three straight games, their previous win being a 47-3 rout of the St. Louis Rams.
In order to stay at the top of the division, the Jets needed to defeat the Patriots, and the atmosphere at Gillette Stadium is not the easiest to play in, especially with such high stakes involved.
After a back-and-forth game, the Jets had a seven-point lead in the final seconds of the game, but Matt Cassel would not go down without a fight. With one second left, Cassel threw a touchdown pass to Randy Moss in the corner of the end zone, sending the game into overtime.
After such a play, most thought the Patriots would end up beating the Jets and end up being the No. 1 team in the AFC East. After exchanging the ball a few times, the Jets were able to get close enough to the end zone for Jay Feely, setting him up for an average field goal.
With seven minutes left in overtime, Feely was able to boot a 34-yard field goal, lifting the Jets above the Patriots and the rest of the AFC East as the Jets won, 34-31.
