    Jets battle back to defeat Bears 30-27
    [​IMG]
    Chicago--On one of Mark Sanchez's worst days, the Jets were able to pull out a 30-27 thanks to a Nick Folk field goal as time expired.
    The ball game started off looking as if was going to be a defensive struggle when both teams exchanged field goals with 2:06 left in the first quarter.
    The Jets would be the first to taste paydirt--though certainly not the last--as Mark Sanchez connected with Calvin Johnson Jr. for a 4-yard touchdown. But on the ensuing kickoff, Devin Hester went 96 yards to the house to tie the game at 10 at the end of one.
    The second quarter saw more stellar defense as a Gould field goal at 1:18 mark would be the lone score in the quarter. Bears 13-10 at half.
    The Jets, behind the legs of Ladanian Tomlinson and the hands of Calvin Johnson, were able to tie the score with a Folk field goal with just over 2 minutes left in the 3rd.
    The Bears would come right back and score on a 44-yard touchdown pass from Cutler to Johnny Knox as the 3rd quarter came to a close with the Bears up 20-13.
    Then all hell broke loose.
    The Jets would put together two brilliant drives with both ending in touchdown runs. The first was 25 yard run by Shonn Greene, The 2nd, an 11-yard toss and run to rookie Joe McKnight. 27-20 Jets.
    The Jets D, which had looked impressive all game, was suddenly gutted by Cutler. The Bears moved down the field with ease and eventually found the endzone on a 24-yard pass from Cutler to Bennett. At first the TD was ruled incomplete but with under 2 minutes left in the game the booth challenged it and the call was overturned. Touchdown Bears. 27 all.
    With 40 seconds and all of their timeouts left, the Jets looked to manufacture a game-winning drive--and they did just that.
    After a couple short passes, Sanchez dropped back and saw Santonio Holmes in single coverage on a streak right up the middle of the field. Sanchez, whose accuracy was shaky all game, let it rip and Holmes came down with it inside the Bear 30. Tomlinson centered the ball in the middle of the field allowing Nick Folk to kick the game-winning 25-yard field goal as time expired.
    Great game SRC. Great defense
    Chicago

    GG Matt, i thought we were at least going to OT, that Holmes catch at the end almost had me breaking my tv.
