Jets Block Punt, Return For Touchdown, Tie Cowboys 24-24

Isaiah Trufant returned a blocked punt for an 18 yard score as the Jets drew the score to even at 24-24 late in the fourth quarter.

After the Cowboys recovered a Mark Sanchez fumble around midfield, the Cowboys were forced to punt after finding themselves in a 3rd and 22 situation. Dallas' punt, though, was blocked, and returned for a touchdown as the Jets tied the game for the first time since the score was 0-0 in the first quarter.

Tony Romo and Dallas' offense will now have five minutes to respond and take the lead as the game marches towards the end of regulation.
