Joe Flacco made the impossible possible, defeating the Browns 31-30 in a crazy ending

It has been a heated week for New York Jets coach Robert Salah. In his weekly media press conference Salah told the media that he was “taking receipts” on all the people who have mocked the Jets. Salah didn’t stop there; he said he would take those receipts and shove them down people’s throats. This is an extremely important year for the Jets. The Jets have missed a current league record 11 straight playoff appearances. The Jets kicked off week one with a huge loss to the Ravens. This week, New York spent week two on the road against the Browns, while capturing an NFL record in the process. They became the first team in 21 years to win after trailing by 13 or more in the final two minutes.

The Jets pulled off a stunning 31-30 win over the Browns after Joe Flacco hit Garrett Wilson for a 15-yard touchdown with 22 seconds left in the game and Greg Zuerlein hit the extra-point attempt to give the Jets the one-point win. The Jets were down 30-17 with 1:55 left in the game and no timeouts. Nick Chubb scored his third touchdown of the game with 1:55 remaining, but Browns kicker Cade York missed the extra point.

The Jets got the ball back and scored on a Corey Davis and Flacco 66-yard touchdown to cut it to 30-24 with 1:22 left. Braden Mann then delivered a perfect onside kick that was recovered by Justin Hardee. The Jets drove down the field in the final minute and Flacco found Wilson on third down for the 15-yard touchdown, which was the rookie’s second score of the game.

“This was a crazy game,” Jets wide receiver Corey Davis said. “Probably one of the craziest endings I have ever been a part of. And probably one of the greatest feelings, too.” It was a stunning loss for the Browns who won last week in crazy fashion after hitting a last second 58-yard field goal to beat the Panthers. The Browns have a short rest week as they play the Steelers on Thursday Night Football. As for the Jets they play a winless Bengals team. The Jets were one of the teams that surprisingly beat the Bengals a year ago so they know firsthand how tough the Jets can be.

“We’ve got to [catch fire]. We have no choice. Coach Saleh said. We have a Super Bowl runner-up coming to town this week – a dynamic offense, a really good defense. I’m sure they’ll remember last year. So, they’re going to come in guns blazing and we’ve got to answer it.
