A pretty good Defense holds a lead in the final 1:37 in a game that is for first place.
I just said that this years D was not as good as he 2009 squad. But if you watched those games you mentioned, you'll notice that the D kept the Jets in the game early, before turnovers and ST mishaps made it a moot point. Also consider it's hard to be more than pretty good when your best player on D is out. D wasn't the problem this year. Drew Brees would've killed to have this Jets defense on his team this year.
