Ten years after the 9/11 attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C., the New York Jets had the honor of hosting the prime-time game on the first Sunday of the 2011 NFL season.
Emotions ran high throughout the day and well into the Sunday night showdown between the Jets and the Dallas Cowboys.
Most of the game belonged to the Cowboys as the Jets struggled to find themselves on offense. Down 14 going into the fourth quarter, New York seemed headed to a loss in Week 1.
The setting could not be more appropriate for one of the Jets' most exciting comebacks in team history. After a series of Tony Romo mistakes and an amazing punt block return for touchdown, the Jets led themselves to a 27-24 victory.
Given the circumstances of the night and how well the Jets executed in the final minutes of the game, there is no doubt this is one of the best wins in the history of the New York Jets.
