Jets 23, Dolphins 20 (OT): Rex Ryan Says 'We'll Take It'

For a long while Sunday it looked like the New York Jets were not going to win. They trailed 10-0 and 17-13 during regulation and had to sweat as Dan Carpenter of the Miami Dolphins missed field goal from 48 yards in overtime, but the Jets came away with a 23-20 overtime victory. In reality, that is what mattered.

"Every win in this league is a great win. They're tough to get. I don't know if I've ever been in a tougher one than this. Clearly it was a team effort and did we get breaks -- we certainly got some breaks, no question about it."

"It looked rough for us for a while. We kept hanging in there. Good things happened to us. We feel very fortunate."

The Jets might not have been so fortunate in the injury department. There is fear that star cornerback Darrelle Revis might have suffered a torn ACL.

Official word on that will come later. For now, however, the Jets can feel good about being 2-1 and having won a game it looked like they were going to lose.

"It was a roller coaster, no doubt," quarterback Mark Sanchez said. "This team fought, we battled. You can't teach resiliency."
