The New York Jets were at the Cleveland Browns and were trialing by 13 points when about 2 minutes were left on the clock and in one of the most memorable ending in NFL history the Jets socred 2 touch downs in the last 82 seconds of the game to take home the W. The Browns made blunders thoughout the period including a touch down that shouldnt have been scored by Nick Chubb. The win stupefied even Jets Head Coach Robert Saleh who per ESPN called it the comeback ‘something crazy.’
Jets Quarterback Joe Flacco is no stranger to miracles even he seemed surprised and had no parallels for what he and his team pulled off-“I don’t know where it ranks, but it’s up there.” Former president Donald Trump had some words about the victory.
