The emotions were high in Met Life stadium as the Jets, the only New York team to play at home on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 came out with an improbable comeback win over the Dallas Cowboys 27-24.
Dallas took a 24-10 lead into the fourth quarter, but the Jets put up 17 consecutive points including Joe McKnight's blocked punt that led to an Isiah Trufant touchdown to tie the game at 24 with five minutes remaining.
Tony Romo then subsequently threw an interception to Darrelle Revis which led to Nick Folk's 50-yard FG to put the Jets up for the first time, but it would be the only time they needed.
Call them lucky, but the Jets did what good teams do, they found a way to win the game when they needed it. The normally reliable defense was getting lit up until forcing Tony Romo to fumble the ball at his own one-yard line.
Mark Sanchez threw for over 350 yards and two touchdowns showing that he is capable of airing it out when necessary, and special teams made the biggest play of the game when their team needed it the most.
For Dallas the loss is heartbreaking as they almost had a monumental win to start the season. Instead it's back to the drawing board in crunch time if they are going to compete with the Eagles in the NFC East this season.
