Each week, the Jets manage to find a new and more ridiculous way to win. This week will be tough to top.
New York coughed up a 17-point fourth quarter lead, only to win 30-27 on a six-yard touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes with ten seconds left. The play before, Mark Sanchez found Braylon Edwards for a 42-yard gain as the Texans secondary fell apart at the worst time imaginable. Again. Houston is 4-6 and buried in the AFC.
I watch the games at work on Sundays with our video producer Matt Casey, who is a lifelong Jets fan. He can’t decide if these insane finishes are a sign that something magical is happening or whether it’s a sign the Jets aren’t as good as their 8-2 record would indicate.
My take: Enjoy the ride. The Jets can still improve, but they are winning along the way. Consider the alternative: You could be a Texans fan.
