@SportsBata ..nuff said
The NY Jets overcame a 14-point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat the Dallas Cowboys 27-24 on a special 9/11 10th anniversary season opener game, last night! Jets CB Darrelle Revis intercepted a pass with only 59 seconds left and the game tied at 24-24! Revis returned the ball 20 yards, Jets made the 50-yard field goal to win, and Revis became the hero on this special day. Robert Deniro narrated a passage, George W. Bush flipped the coin, and Lady Antebellum sang the National Anthem proudly. A brawl broke out between fans (video below). Jets QB Mark Sanchez threw for 335 yards, but also had 18 incompletions, and threw a back-breaking interception which led to a score at the one yard line. Everybody in NY came together for this 9/11 anniversary game, and the Jets repped NY well with a dramatic come-back victory!!! Check out videos and commentary below!

“For us to be scheduled for this game on 9/11. . . it means a lot to people,” said Darrelle Revis, whose fourth-quarter interception of Tony Romo basically provided the margin of victory.
“We haven’t played our best ball,” Revis said, “. . . but we did show heart at the end. We showed heart and toughness and we fought back. Nobody held their heads down.”
“This week, we all just felt it,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said. “You can see where the towers were from our stadium.” – foxsports
Tribute to 9-11 as Taps is played and so is Amazing Grace before Lady Antebellum sang the Star Spangled Banner:
Brawl broke out between fans at the game:
For only the third time in franchise history, the Jets came back from a deficit of 14 or more points in the fourth quarter. Now, after two consecutive appearances in the conference championship game, it is enough to think that the Jets have finally vanquished their former choking selves, the Same Old Jets.
“You saw the resolve this football team has,” said Ryan, who wasn’t blathering. “. . . We have a lot of work to do, but we’ll take this kind of victory any day of the week.” – foxsports
“It’s amazing,” Ryan said. “It doesn’t get much better than this, especially the way we got it done, the resolve that this football team has. We played far from a perfect game. Not even close. That’s an excellent football team. I’ll sign up right now to play them in the Super Bowl.” – espn
