NEW YORK — These nerve-racking New York Jets sure have a flair for the dramatic lately.
Maybe that deflating loss to Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos nearly three weeks ago rubbed off a little.
Since allowing Tebow to march down the field 95 yards for a winning touchdown, New York has pulled out two victories in the fourth quarter. Last week, it was an impressive winning drive with just over a minute left against Buffalo. On Sunday, the Jets scored three touchdowns in the last 5 minutes to pull away from the Washington Redskins 34-19 and keep pace in the AFC playoff race.
The Jets (7-5) are certainly living dangerously. Guard Matt Slauson says it seemed after the Denver loss that "the panic button had been pressed a little bit."
