Jets Survive In OT, 23-20 [VIDEO]

Nick Folk received a reprieve when his blocked field-goal attempt was negated by a timeout, and his second try was a successful 33-yarder with 6:04 left, giving the Jets a 23-20 overtime victory over the Miami Dolphins.

Mark Sanchez hit Santonio Holmes for a 38-yard gain to set up the kick. Two plays later, Folk’s try was blocked, but the officials whistled the play dead just as the ball was snapped because the Dolphins had called timeout.

Folk then made the winner.

On the previous possession, the Dolphins’ Dan Carpenter was wide left on a 48-yard field-goal attempt that would have given them the victory.

New York improved to 2-1, and Miami dropped to 1-2. The Jets’ Darrelle Revis and Miami’s Reggie Bush left the game with left knee injuries.
