Every Jets fan will claim to have been in attendance for this Monday-night miracle after quarterback Vinny Testaverde erased a 23-point fourth-quarter deficit by completing 18-of-26 passes for 235 yards and four scores in the final 15 minutes of regulation. His three-yard toss to Jumbo Elliott on a tackle-eligible play with 42 seconds to go tied the game at 37-37, and John Hall's 40-yard field goal in OT won it. What made the outcome most memorable was that it came before a virtually empty stadium, as many in the crowd headed for the exits after Miami took a 30-7 lead.
