    Jets come back from 14 down to beat 'Phins 24-21
    Megatron caught 9 balls for 160 yards and 1 TD​

    New York -- On a day where the running game struggled to find a rhythm, QB Mark Sanchez carried the Jets to their 10th victory of the year.​

    Following an LT fumble, the Dolphins came out firing on all cylinders as a 26-yard touchdown pass from Henne to Marshall would put Miami up 7-0.​

    After a Jets' punt, the Dolphins would strike again with a 9-yard pass from Henne to Harline. Dolphins up 14-0 after one.​

    Then the Jets' D stepped up.​

    Miami would not score in the second quarter, but the Jets would behind the crazy-like athletic ability of WR Calvin Johnson. Shonn Greene would cap off a drive with a 6-yard touchdown run to pull the Jets within a touchdown.​

    Both defenses would continue to stifle the two offenses, but Brandon Marshall would put an end to that with a 10-yard touchdown pass to put Miami back up two touchdowns with just over 3 minutes to play in the third quarter. It would be the last time Miami would score.​

    On a 3rd and inches on the Dolphin 10, the Jets decided to go for a pass play and it ended up paying dividends as McKnight was wide open in the flat for the 10-yard TD scamper. 21-14 Dolphins at the end of 3.​

    The Jets owned the fourth quarter in terms of scoring. First, Sanchez connected with Calvin Johnson for a 6-yard touchdown pass to even things up.​

    With just over two minutes left, the Dolphins faced a 3rd and long from midfield. Henne dropped back to pass but the coverage was (finally) tight. The Jets only brought three but it would be all they needed as Shaun Ellis got to Henne for a huge sack. Miami would be forced to punt.​

    The Jets, possessing all of their timeouts, began their drive down the field by surprising Miami with runs.​

    On a 3rd and short, Sanchez would find David Clowney over the middle for a huge gain up to about midfield. It was no secret who the Jets looked to next: Megatron. On a corner route, Johnson was in tight coverage with safety help, but Sanchez let it fly and Megatron made the catch at about the 33.​

    With two timeouts and the 10mph wind at their back, the Jets rushed the ball three times eventually getting down to the 29 yard line for Nick Folk. With the clock turning all gooseeggs, Folk's 44 yarder went right down the middle.​

    Great game Mustang! You're a very solid owner!​
