A Nick-Name for Today's Amazing Win

They won, are wins so rare that we have to name them now?

When you win in a situation that has only been repeated once in the last 2,230 instances (the last one happening over 20 years ago), I'd say its nickname-worthy.  

When you're the Jets who also don't win often (including 0-13 in the prior September games), even more so.

Of the probably 15 games I have gone to in my life, one was in the early 'naughties' against Cleveland and the Jets were kicking the crap out of them for the first half.  Then at some point, Curtis Martin broke a Jets record and instead of just announcing it and moving in, they stopped the game and did a whole ceremony on the field.  When the game restarted, everything the Browns did worked and they ended up winning.  It sucked.  I think yesterday was karma for that.  Now, I am VERY hazy about the entirety of the story, we were sitting with our back against the wall in the top row of the Meadowlands and Chad was QB.  Man we used to get drunk a lot cheaper back then.

We had the Monday Night Miracle.  

I am SURE the NY paper writers will give this a due title as well.

But before THEY get their shot, you all get your shot.

What would you nickname todays odd-defying amazing win?

Me?  The "Dog Pound Debacle" is the best I've come up with so far.

What about you?

"The Colossal Collapse in Cleveland"

The cleveland steamer game has my vote

While "Cleveland Steamer" is a hilarious name, it's kind of from Cleveland's perspective.  It basically says "Cleveland blew it".  And while Cleveland definitely did blow it, the Jets still took advantage.

That's why I lean toward "The Receipt Rally" (I think Dunnie came up with the name).   That one is much more "Jets-centric".  (The Jets rallied the week after Saleh talked about receipts).
