Instant Classic

Santonio Holmes catches a TD Pass from Tim Tebow
Browns tie the game with under 30 seconds to go in regulation
Instant Classic
The 2013 Divisional Round will be remembered for this "Instant Classic" between the Browns and the Jets in MetLife Stadium.  The Jets came into the game having lost their last 2 games and losing the #1 seed in the AFC Playoffs.  The Browns on the other hand came off a blowout win of the Dolphins in the Wild Card Round.  The beginning of this one produced a lot of offense as they went back and forth.  With the score 28-14 Jets, right before the half the Browns were faced with a tough decision as the clock was winding down and they faced a 4th and inches from the goalline.  A QB Sneak was the call, but the Jets Defense stood tall and what looked like a TD turned out to be a goalline stand.  The Browns cut the score to 31-24 in the 4th quarter and with under a minute to go in regulation QB Brandon Wheeden needed to have the drive of his life, and he did.  Fozzy Whitiker wound up catching the TD pass to tie the game with under 20 seconds remaining.  The Browns won the toss in OT and were in business on the initial drive of OT.  They got to midfield where the drive stalled and they faced a 4th and 5.  To most people's amazement they decided to go for it.  The result was an incomplete pass and the Jets had the ball needing only a FG to win it.  On a crucial 3rd down Rookie QB Matt Simms found Jeff Cumberland on an out pattern and two running plays later K Greg Zuerlein kicked the 52 yard game winning FG.
