In the Ryan Bowl, the Dallas Cowboys blew a 14-point fourth-quarter lead for the first time in franchise history, and they did so in dramatic fashion.
After Plaxico Burress caught his first NFL touchdown in three seasons to cut the Jets' deficit to 24-17, Tony Romo connected with Jason Witten for a 64-yard pass and then tried to score on a scramble. But he fumbled the ball, and the Jets recovered at the 1-yard line.
A few minutes later, the Jets blocked a punt, and cornerback Isaiah Trufant, fresh off the team's practice squad, scooped up the ball and scored the game-tying touchdown with five minutes to play.
Each team had the ball again, and when Dallas got the ball back with a minute remaining, Romo promptly threw an interception to Darrelle Revis, who returned the ball into field-goal range. Nick Folk's 50-yard field goal with 24 seconds remaining gave the Jets a 27-24 lead.
The New York defense stopped Romo and the Cowboys, and the Jets collected a huge victory on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
