New York Jets Season In Review: Milestones

The New York Jets are focused on the task at hand, which is preparing for Saturday’s wild-card weekend AFC playoff game in Indianapolis against Peyton Manning and the Colts. That, however, doesn’t mean we can’t take a minute to look back on some of the accomplishments of the Jets’ 11-5 regular season.

Courtesy of the NFL PR Dept., here are some significant milestones achieved by the Jets in 2010:

— Clinched consecutive playoff appearances for fifth time in franchise history.

— Erased a 10-point deficit in the final three minutes of regulation and defeated the Detroit Lions 23-20 in overtime in Week 9. It marked only the second time in franchise history the Jets rallied from a double-digit deficit in the final three minutes of the fourth quarter (September 24, 2000 at Tampa Bay).

— Defeated the Browns 26-20 in overtime at Cleveland Browns Stadium in Week 10, and became the first team in NFL history to win road games in overtime in consecutive weeks.

— With 3,291 yards, QB MARK SANCHEZ (age 24) became the second youngest Jet to pass for 3,000 yards (Pro Football Hall of Famer JOE NAMATH, age 23 after 1966 season).
