NFL Falcons 28 Jets 30
The 2-2 New York Jets came into the Georgia Dome 9 point underdogs against the 1-3 Falcons. But the Falcons were missing Star Running Back Steven Jackson and Receiver Roddy White injured his Left Hamstring early. The Falcons trailed 17-7 at the half. Then, after a three yard touchdown pass by Matt Ryan, the Jets found themselves down by 1 with just 1:54 left. Rookie QB Geno Smith then led his team 55 yards down the field to set up the game-winning 43 yard kick by Nick Folk. Smith completed 16 of 20 passes for 199 yards and 3 touchdowns and also ran for 21 yards. Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 36 of 45 passes for 319 yards and 2 touchdowns.
