Jets Collect Vital Win Against Bills 28-24
The New York Jets got a crucial win against their AFC East rival Buffalo Bills 28-24. Find out how Gang Green came back from behind to win it.
The Jets found themselves down three times in this game down 7-0, 14-7, and 24-21, and managed to find a way to come back each time and hold on for the win. Mark Sanchez completed just shy of half of his attempts going 17-35 with 180 yards, 4 touchdowns (a single game career high), and one big interception.
Dustin Keller was the offensive star in the game with 2 touchdown receptions along with his 4 receptions for 61 yards. Plaxico Burress and Santanio Holmes each with a touchdown catch. Holmes had the big go-ahead catch with 1:01 left in the 4th quarter.
The Buffalo Bills were able to drive down the field late in the game but fell short as Stevie Johnson dropped a huge wide-open pass and dropped another in the end zone. Johnson also had some controversy in the game as he made a touchdown celebration dance earlier in the game that mocked Burress’ off-the-field incident and the Jets normal celebration.
Ryan Fitzpatrick was quite good for the Bills in this one going 26-39, with 264 yards and 3 touchdown strikes. Former New York Jet Brad Smith had a strong game with 77 yards and a touchdown. Stevie Johnson and David Nelson each with a touchdown reception.
The New York Jets keep their AFC Wild Card hopes alive with the victory. They travel to Washington next week to face the Redskins at 1:00 PM.
