The New York Jets looked like they were about to take control in the opening minutes of the third quarter on Thursday night against the Denver Broncos in Mile High Stadium.
"Gang Green" quarterback Mark Sanchez drove his team downfield for 80 yards across eight plays (4:03), only to find the end zone following a fumble recovery on the one yard line. Nick Folk was on the money to make it 10-3 in favor of New York.
And that was it from the Jets offense for the remainder of the quarter.
Not that Denver's offense was lighting up the scoreboard, but it didn't need to. Broncos cornerback Andre Goodman intercepted Sanchez and ran it back for a 26-yard touchdown. Matt Prater split the uprights to make it 10-all.
New York was stripped of the football in the ensuing kickoff return, giving them two turnovers in a span of 10 seconds. Fortunately for the Jets, Denver was unable to capitalize on the mistake and were eventually forced to punt.
With 15 minutes left to play, this is still anyone's game.
