    For the Jets 2nd straight game, the finish came down to the wire with a trip to OT. And much like their previous game against the Patriots, the Jets finished off their divisional foe the Buffalo Bills in dramatic fashion.

    Two weeks ago the Jets played the Patriots thaexistence in New York. The Jets were down 14-7 with 2:00 minutes remaining with the ball downed at their own 1. Amazingly, they were able to drive the field and get into position at the 22 yard line and score the game tying 22-yard TD pass to Archie Hull with 0:07 remaining. One the very first play in OT, the Patriots threw an ill-advised INT to S Kendrick Walters which set the Jets up for an easy FG to win the game.

    Fast forward two weeks and one game to their matchup with the Buffalo Bills: TEClemson53

    The Jets and Bills exchanged blows - mostly defensive - keeping each offense at bay for most of the game. Darius Hale hauled in a short 1-yd TD to go up 7-0, and that score was evened by a 22-yd TD pass to Archie Hull of the Jets.

    The Bills clung on to a 13-10 lead with 3:00 remaining in the game. The Jets took the slow but methodical approach, only looking to score a FG and tie the game to force another OT. The Jets would drive the length of the field on a few big runs by DeShae Bostic and a few key receptions by Stephen Hill, Bradie Ewing (FB), and Archie Hull. The Jets were able to get into range and put 3 points on the board to force yet another game into overtime.

    The Bills won the toss, again forcing the Jets to hold their opponent out of the end zone to get a chance in OT to win the game. And then it happened, yet again...

    On the very first play of OT, the Bills star QB Drew Hale threw an errant pass right into the hands of SS Reshad Jones - who brought it within FG range for the Jets. Again by the foot of Stephen Gostkowski, the Jets emerged victorious for their 2nd straight OT thriller against their division rivals.

    The Jets stand at 7-3 going into a potentially pivotal matchup against the 5-5 Patriots in a rematch of the Week 9 upset victory. The Patriots will likely be out for blood in this upcoming game.
