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."
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."
