Nick Folk got a second chance and made it count, kicking a 33-yard field goal in overtime to lift the New York Jets to a 23-20 victory over the Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium.

After Miami's Dan Carpenter missed from 48 yards, the Jets drove from their own 38 to the Miami 15 with their second possession of the extra period. Mark Sanchez hit Santonio Holmes with a 38-yard pass on the second play to put the Jets in field goal range.

Following a pair of Shonn Greene carries, the Jets set up for Folk's kick. The Dolphins blocked the attempt, but had called timeout just before the snap to give Folk a second chance and he knocked it straight through to give the Jets (2-1) the victory.
