Lions Choke Away 10-Point Lead, Lose To Jets In Overtime, 23-20

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Nick Folk kicked a 36-yard field goal on the final play of the fourth quarter and won it with a 30-yard boot in overtime, as the New York Jets scored the final 13 points to pull off a stunning 23-20 victory over the Detroit Lions at Ford Field.

The Jets trailed 20-10 before Mark Sanchez scored on a one-yard run with 2:46 left in the fourth quarter, then got the ball back after a Lions punt soon after and drove for Folk's game-tying kick.

New York won the toss to start overtime and Sanchez hit Santonio Holmes with a 52-yard pass to set up Folk's winning field goal, as the Jets (6-2) bounced back after a 9-0 loss to Green Bay last Sunday.

Matthew Stafford threw for 240 yards with a pair of touchdowns for Detroit (2-6) before leaving the contest with an apparent shoulder injury.
