The New York Jetsalso known as the overtime kidsdo it again. The football gods can take that Tie and and keep it in Cleveland because the Jets were not settling for a draw. Just an absolutely outstanding effort all around (except you Nick Folk) for the Jets on this beautiful Sunday.

And how about No. 6? The franchise quarterback is blossoming into the terrific leader we all thought he would eventually be one day when he was drafted. He showed it all today. He never panicked, even when the pocket was collapsing around him in overtime and on the road. Brilliant poise. In all honesty, this might have been Sanchise's best game in the NFL thus far. Evading tackles, finding receivers on dead plays and being decisive when he had to think quick. In my opinion, Sanchez showed all the Jet faithful out there today that he's got what it takes to bring big fortunes to this team. Just when things were looking bleak, Mr. Sanchez just put the team on his back and won it for them. New York Jets football is definitely at an all time high as they have now moved to 7-2.

Clearly the play of the game was the slant to Holmes to seal the victory. Is that play even stoppable when Santonio is running that route? It basically won the game against Detroit and once again this time in Cleveland. Not to mention, massive props to Brian Shotty on calling a fantastic game for this offense.

Next week the Jets should be able to push there stellar record to 8-2, as they welcome the slumping, yet very talented Houston Texans.
