The Jets pulled within 4 again to tighten the game late in the 4th. After great coverage on the kick, Big Blue stopped the Jets inside their 20. Sanchez dropped back and would get sacked by Ed Johnson, the newest member of the Giants DLine, who forced a fumble on the play. DT Canty scooped the ball up and took it into the endzone, giving the Giants a 31-20 lead with little time left on the clock. The Jets would move down the field and grab another touchdown and after a failed 2pt conversion and a failed onside kick, the Giants would burn out the clock and take the city of New York.
