Chargers vs. Jets: 5 Things We Learned from New York's 27-21 WIn

Midway through, it seemed as if there was going to be a blowout in New York, as the San Diego Chargers left the field with a 21-10 lead. Minutes later they returned onto the field to try and pad their lead before leaving to fly back across the country, but the Jets had other ideas in mind.

Following the half, the Jets were finally able to force Philip Rivers and company to punt for the first time since the first quarter, which they failed to take advantage of. It was not until San Diego's third three-and-out of the game that the Jets drove down the field to score.

In comparison to the third quarter, not much changed in the fourth as Plaxico Burress caught his third touchdown pass to give his team the lead. The Jets defense continued to hold off the Chargers offense and was able to keep them from making a late comeback, and just as they did 11 years ago in the "Monday Night Miracle," the Jets came back and left the Meadowlands victorious.

With that, here are the five things learned from Sunday's victory. As always, feedback is welcome. Enjoy!
