Game Summary

The New York Jets started with quarterback Brett Favre against a Miami Dolphins team that was sporting new starting quarterback and former Jets starting quarterback Chad Pennington. Favre got the Jets on the scoreboard first in the first quarter with a play-action pass that found Jerricho Cotchery at the 10-yard line en route to a 56-yard touchdown. However, Mike Nugent sprained his thigh on the following kickoff, and when he attempted and missed a 32-yard field goal attempt, Nugent was brought out of the game. Miami then responded, with Pennington marching the Dolphins down to the 6-yard line. From there, Pennington connected with Anthony Fasano for a 5-yard touchdown, tying the game. On the following drive for the Jets, coach Eric Mangini, faced with the possibility of missing a 40-yard field goal if he allowed an uncertain Nugent to kick the ball, opted for Favre to continue on 4th down and 13 yards. Favre, under pressure, threw up a high ball and Chansi Stuckey jumped up for the catch in the end zone, giving the Jets a 13-7 lead. Rather than put Nugent out to the field for a PAT, Mangini opted to go for two points, but the option failed.

In the 3rd quarter, Favre brought the Jets back to the red zone, moving them to the 6 yard line. From there, Favre handed off the ball to Thomas Jones, who ran in for the touchdown. Along with an extra point from Nugent, the Jets now had a 20-7 lead. Due to miscommunication, Pennington was forced to use two time-outs early in the 4th quarter. Late in the 4th quarter, Pennington moved Miami down the field, including connecting on a 14 yard pass from 4th-and-7 at midfield. Pennington completed an 11 yard touchdown pass to David Martin with 3:27 remaining, cutting the Jets' lead to 6 points. The Jets, who ran the clock down to the two-minute warning, went three-and-out on their drive, giving the ball back to Miami at their 34-yard line with 1:53 remaining. Pennington moved the team down the field, getting to the 18-yard line with 18 seconds on the clock. On 3rd-and-10 from the 18-yard line, Pennington attempted a throw to Ted Ginn, Jr. in the back of the end zone, but it was intercepted by Darrelle Revis, sealing the six-point win for the Jets. Brett Favre, in his Jets debut, completed 15 of 22 passes for 194 yards and 2 touchdowns (with a passer rating of 125.9).

The Jets had their biggest ever win, a 47-3 massacre of the hapless St. Louis Rams.

In the second quarter, the Jets continued their domination as Jones got a 2-yard TD run, Feely kicked a 49-yard to make it 27-0. Feely then kicked a 46-yard field goal after Kerry Rhodes recovered a fumble by Derek Stanley. The Jets took advantage of another turnover when Rhodes picked off Bulger’s pass for Donnie Avery and returned it 50 yards to the Rams 18. Four plays later, Favre found Dustin Keller in the end zone for a 1-yard touchdown to make it 37-0 with 28 seconds left in the half. Instead of kneeling on the ball, the Rams chose to run — and paid for it. Kenneth Darby, starting for the injured Steven Jackson, had the ball knocked out and Eric Barton recovered it. Feely kicked a 55-yarder two plays later, tying Pat Leahy and John Hall for the longest in team history. The Jets had two interceptions and three fumble recoveries, including Pace’s 50-yard touchdown return.

Things were so bad for the Rams that Trent Green, who replaced the ineffective Marc Bulger at halftime, hit umpire Bill Schuster in the head with a pass. Green led the Rams to their only points on Josh Brown’s 37-yard field goal. He was later intercepted by Hank Poteat, and Jones dragged a few Rams into the end zone a few plays later for his third touchdown from 6 yards to make it 47-3. Jones had 26 carries for 149 yards, and Favre was 14-of-19 for 167 yards and a touchdown before being replaced by Kellen Clemens in the fourth quarter.

Game Summary

The Jets took sole possession of first place for the first time since Nov. 19, 2001 after surviving a comeback by the New England Patriots. The Jets got off to a fast start, scoring on their first three possessions. Leon Washington opened the scoring on a 7-yard pass from Brett Favre before the Patriots cut the lead to 7-3 on their first series on the first of Gostkowski’s three field goals, a 42-yarder. Jay Feely then kicked a 22 yard field goal to leave the Jets up 10-3 at the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter, New England would answer with Gostkowski making a 31-yard field goal, but Washington took the ball back 92 yards on the ensuing kickoff. It was his first kickoff return for a touchdown this season after he tied a team record last year with three. Favre then threw a 15-yard scoring pass to Jerricho Cotchery, and the Jets led 24-6 with 4:57 left in the first half. After the Patriots then went for it on fourth down and blew it, the Jets then proceeded to go all conservative, and let the Patriots get back into the game. Cassel threw a 19-yard scoring pass to Jabar Gaffney with 15 seconds left in the half and a 10-yarder to Benjamin Watson on the final play from scrimmage of the third quarter, and made the two point conversion. The Patriots tied it at 24-24 on Gostkowski’s 47-yard field goal with 10:16 left in the fourth quarter. The Jets then had a long time consuming drive culminating in a 1 yard touchdown run by Thomas Jones with just over three minutes left. The Patriots went three and outm and punted, yet the Jets, with the chance to close out the game, went back into conservative mode again, went three and out, giving the Patriots the ball at their own 38, with 1:04 left. The Patriots, aided by very soft Jets defending marched down the field, tying the game on a 16 yard pass from Cassel to Randy Moss with one second left.

The Jets would win the overtime coin toss and elected to receive. On the first play, Favre was sacked, followed by an incompletion. On 3rd and 15, Favre hit Justin Keller for 16 yards and a first down. Keller would make two more receptions for first downs on the drive, and Favre hit Laveranues Coles for 16 yards to get the Jets within field goal range. Four plays later, Jay Feely would kick a 34 yard field goal to win the game. Favre made his 263rd consecutive regular-season start, an NFL record, and went 26-of-33 for 258 yards and, on the only drive of overtime, marched the Jets 64 yards on 14 plays in 7:50.

The Jets spread out Tennessee, Favre threw fast and often, and they wore the Titans’ defense down by keeping it on the field for more than 40 minutes. New York overcame two turnovers and two sacks in the first half by outgaining Tennessee on offense 409-281. Once again the Jets started out well, Favre completing his first eight passes for 89 yards, the sixth a 10-yard TD pass to Thomas Jones on the opening drive. Jay Feely kicked a field goal to put the Jets up 10-0. The Titans went three-and-out on three of their first five drives and had only 55 yards offense until a final drive just before halftime when Rob Bironas finally put Tennessee on the scoreboard with a 43-yard field goal. A second Feely field goal and a Coles touchdown reception had the Jets up by 17 going into the fourth quarter. Bironas kicked a second field goal to get the Titans back within 14, but then Leon Washington broke a 61 yard run to make it 27-6. Kerry Collins tossed a 6 yard touchdown pass to Ahmard Hall with just under ten minutes to go, but a 14 play seven minute drive, capped by a 4 yard run by Washington killed off the game.

This was only the third game in NFL history featuring two starting quarterbacks with more than 100,000 yards combined yards passing in Favre and Kerry Collins.

Game Summary

The Jets' five game winning streak came to an end in a rain sodden Meadowlands. Broncos safety Vernon Fox gave the Broncos an early lead when he returned a fumble 23 yards for a touchdown on a controversial play midway through the opening period. Wide receiver Brad Smith took a direct snap and tried to hand off to Jerricho Cotchery, but the ball squirted away. Cotchery jumped on top of it, seemingly securing it, but then was hit. Fox picked it up and returned it for a touchdown.

Coach Eric Mangini wanted to challenge the call, but the officials ruled Cotchery had never gained possession so it was still a fumble, and not a reviewable play. It was the first of some questionable calls on a poor day by the officials. Thomas Jones got the Jets right back in it with a 59-yard touchdown run on the opening play of the possession. But Denver came right back four plays later when Eddie Royal scored on a 59-yard touchdown pass with 6:44 left. Eddie Prater then added a field goal for the Broncos. Jones scored his second touchdown early in the second quarter on an athletic, heads-up play to put the Jets within three at 17-14. He took the handoff and went down, but his body rolled over the Broncos' Kenny Peterson without touching the ground. Jones bounced up and zipped into the end zone for a 29-yard touchdown. The Broncos replied with Peyton Hillis getting a 1-yard TD run, along with Prater getting a 35-yard field goal, just before half time. The second half descended into near farce with Denver players seemingly suffering career endiong injuries after every couple of plays, before making miraculous recoveries. Feely added a field goal in the third quarter, and Denver finished the scoring with Brandon Stokley scoring on a 36 yard completion from Jay Cutler.

The Jets maintained a one-game lead in the AFC East over New England and Miami despite the loss.
