New York Jets comeback to take down Chiefs in Arrowhead 24-17
The New York Jets won their divisional round game against Kansas City to advance to the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts. The excitement from this game came early as the Jets received the opening kickoff and Dexter Jackson ran it back 101 yards to give New York an early lead. Unfortunately for the Jets, this would be the only bit of good news in the first three quarters. QB Mark Sanchez played his worst game of the season with interceptions ending three of the first four Jet offensive drives. Sanchez would end the game with four total picks. Despite losing the turnover battle 5-4, the Jets were able to stay in the game with a strong defensive showing against Matt Cassel. New York didn't allow Cassel to throw a single touchdown pass and forced two interceptions.
Kansas City held a 17-10 lead midway through the fourth quarter. Despite both offenses playing sloppy football all game long, the Jets' offense finally began to find a rythym. Dustin Keller made a great touchdown grab in the back of the endzone to tie the game up with about two minutes left. Just a couple of plays later the Jets' defense stepped up big and forced a fumble away from Peyton Hillis. With about 1:30 left in the game, Sanchez found Keller all alone on a short route and Keller took the ball to the house for a 61 yard touchdown to give the Jets the lead late in the game. KC was forced to abandon their successful run game behind Jamaal Charles and QB Matt Cassel threw a interception to Evan Lankster to seal the game for the Jets.
