Jets rally puts Giants in big bind
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Tom Coughlin is on the hot seat again after a fateful fourth-quarter decision backfired, hurting the Giants' playoff hopes and helping of all teams, the local rival Jets.
Ryan Fitzpatrick rallied the Jets — on this day, playing as visitors in the stadium they share with the Giants — from a late 10-point deficit and Randy Bullock hit a 31-yard field goal on the Jets' first possession of overtime. The Giants' Josh Brown missed a 48-yard field goal field goal with 6:33 left in OT, his first miss in 26 tries this season.
The Giants, up 20-10, went for it on fourth and 2 from the Jets 4 with under nine minutes to play. Safety Rontez Miles intercepted Eli Manning to start the Jets' rally.
"For us to come from behind, it shows some grit," Jets coach Todd Bowles said.
Fitzpatrick hit Brandon Marshall for a 9-yard score with 27 seconds left in regulation, forcing OT.
