New York Jets wide receiver Plaxico Burress hadn't played in a regular season NFL game in nearly three years, but on Sunday night he already has his first touchdown pass since 2008. Burress didn't have his first reception in the game until late in the third quarter, an 18-yard gain, but that was immediately followed by the Sanchez interception.
On the next drive, Sanchez made up for things by throwing a 26-yard pass to Burress. It was mid-air catch that saw him sneak in around the pylon. However, like the previous Cowboys drive, this play had to be reviewed by the booth official. Unlike Lee's repealed touchdown, Burress' touchdown was confirmed, and the Jets are now down 24-17 with 10-plus minutes left to play.
