NFL Playoff Scores: Jets Vs. Colts - Nick Folk Field Goal Gives New York 17-16 Victory Over Indy

The New York Jets pulled off a last-second victory over the Indianapolis Colts, 17-16, on a 32-yard Nick Folk field goal with three second left on the clock. The Colts had taken a 16-14 lead on a 50-yard Adam Vinatieri field goal less than a minute earlier, but on the ensuing kickoff the Jets' Antonio Cromartie took the ball 47 yards to his team's 46-yard line. After a booth challenge on a Braylon Edwards catch, Mark Sanchez eventually got the Jets to the Colts' to the Indy 14-yard line on an Edwards 18-yard catch. Running the clock down to three seconds and calling a timeout, the Jets set up Folk for the game-winning field goal.

The second half saw a bit more offense as we saw the Jets' LaDainian Tomlinson and Shonn Greene rush for 82 yards and 70 yards, respectively, at game's end. Tomlinson scored both on the Jet's touchdowns on the night. Sanchez finished 18-of-31.

For the Colts, Adam Vinatieri scored all nine of the team's points in the second half. Peyton Manning finished 18-of-26 for 225 yards and no touchdowns. Pierre Garcon finished with five receptions for 112 yards.

Sanchez is now 3-1 in playoff games and Manning is 9-10.

While the Colts go home, the Jets will face the New England Patriots next weekend.
