Jets Vs. Broncos Score Update: New York Fumble At Goal Line Turns Into TD

The New York Jets didn't waste any time scoring in the second half. After receiving the ball and starting the drive at the 20-yard line, the Jets saw quarterback Mark Sanchez throw a 30-yard strike to Plaxico Burres to bring the ball to midfield. Sanchez found Burress on two more plays later in the drive before the team was on Denver's one-yard line.

Then this happened:

Rookie Bilal Poweel, playing in his first NFL game, couldn't make any forward progress and lost control of the ball (forced fumble credited to Von Miller). But the ball moved forward and right to offensive lineman Matt Slauson, who covered the ball for a touchdown. The Jets made the extra point and took a 10-3 lead.
