Al Davis could've been talking about tonight's victory when he proclaimed "Just win baby!"
This may be our ugliest victory in a long, long time.
These type of games usually ended with us losing.
You block a kick and then throw a freak interception.
You kick a long field goal and then boot the kick off out of bounds.
But after each mishap we found a way to suck it up and make a play.
Usually by a big sack to push the Jets into two longer field goal attempts which drifted just left.
I wasn't sure who was going to lose this game since no one seemed willing to win it.
And the fourth quarter arrived and Ryan Tannehill, who threw for his 5th consecutive game of at least a 70% completion rate, mixed in some good throws with some great running by Lamar Miller.
The O Line made enough creases for Miller to slip through and kept Tannehill upright dispite having Samson Satele sidelined in that last drive for the go ahead field goal.
Just as I thought "Yes" another "No" would soon follow. But the last "Yes!" will carry the day as a perfectly thrown ball by Geno Smith was tipped into an interception and victory formation.
You have to give Joe Philbin some props for running the ball inside the red zone and winding that clock down to 2 minutes left because after the Jets gashed us for 277 yards rushing it would have to be Geno Smith who would have to win it for the Jets and those odds were long.
Probably longer than the anguish of that first half. Too many "No!"s
So we leave NJ with a 7-5 record. Good enough for the sixth seed in the AFC Playoff race.
One that's a long way from over but she is looking better each day.
