Jets clutch in OT again, defeat Browns in thriller
CLEVELAND — Santonio Holmes scored on a 37-yard touchdown pass from Mark Sanchez with 16 seconds left in overtime, giving the New York Jets a 26-20 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. It was the Jets’ eighth consecutive regular-season road win.
It also was the second consecutive overtime victory for the Jets (7-2), who won 23-20 in Detroit a week ago. New York overcame three missed field-goal attempts by Nick Folk, including a 47-yarder in OT.
On first down, Sanchez whipped a quick pass to Holmes, who, after catching the ball, stepped inside of Browns rookie safety T.J. Ward and sprinted into the end zone.
