Then in overtime, the ball bounced their way.

First the Miami Dolphins missed a potential game-winning field-goal attempt and then Jets kicker Nick Folk received a reprieve. After Folk's blocked field-goal attempt was negated by a timeout, his retry was a successful 33-yarder with 6:04 left and the Jets won 23-20 Sunday.

“We'll take the win,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said. “We're not going to give it back.”

New York improved to 2-1, and the Dolphins dropped to 1-2.

FinThe Jets' Darrelle Revis and Miami's Reggie Bush left the game with left knee injuries.

The Dolphins' Dan Carpenter was wide left on a 48-yard attempt that would have given them the victory. “I let the team down,” Carpenter said.

New Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano had trouble getting his unit moving much of the day, but in the end he called just enough right plays to beat the team that fired him as head coach last December.

The Dolphins will play the Arizona Cardinals at 4:30 p.m. Sunday in Phoenix.
