WEEK 1: JETS 27, COWBOYS 24 (Sept. 11, 2011)
Trailing 24-17 with the Cowboys at their 2-yard line, it looked like the Jets needed a miracle for a comeback. They got it. Romo fumbled the ball at the three, preventing Dallas from scoring an insurance touchdown; the Jets then blocked a punt two drives later and returned it for a touchdown to tie the game at 24; and finally Darrelle Revis picked off Tony Romo with 0:49 remaining to set up a game-winning field goal by Nick Folk. Plaxico Burress had a huge day in his return to the field, finishing with 72 yards receiving and a touchdown, all in the second half.
