The opportunities were there for both teams to win the game. Both teams went back and forth, with the Jets screwing themselves with missed field goals and the Browns screwing themselves with a Chansi Stuckey fumble.

After Joe Haden's interception late in overtime, the coaching staff was faced with a tough decision. Backed up with the odds against us to win the game, Cleveland stayed aggressive on first down rather than just running the clock out and settling for a tie. The Browns were forced to punt, and Mark Sanchez continued his solid day with a game-winning touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes on the dreaded slant pattern that I had been fearing all week long.

There were a lot of positives and negatives in this game, but the Browns still played resilient against one of the best teams in football. This wasn't an easy win for the Jets, but they played better than our past two opponents and earned it. It's tough to swallow as a Browns fan, but with a "softer" schedule coming up, hopefully the players on the team can get healthy and continue playing with a chip on their shoulder.

Final Score: Jets 26, Browns 20
