Another solid drive, this one ends in a field goal for the Cowboys. The Jets defense may be getting a little tired of the 3 and outs by the offense. The Jets offense has looked poor so far tonight. The game is a long way from over but the Jet must start moving the ball.

On queue the Jets offense wakes up and puts together their own TD drive. It was very quick so it was only worth 21 PossessionPoints. Not bad and in truth about all they had time for.

Cowboys open the 3rd quarter scoring with a good PossessionPoints TD. That lifts their PossessionPoints to a yellow 93. Another drive even half this good would push them into the "green".

The Cowboys hold the Jets to a field goal after a 4 minute and 4 second drive. The Jets PossessionPoints are still red, they are definitely going to need more to win this game.

Cowboys score a TD 10 seconds after a Sean Lee interception set the Cowboys up on the 1 yard line. Not a lot in the way of PossessionPoints for that but maybe enough to win the game. Cowboys are still in the yellow.

Jets kick a field goal with just 27 seconds left in the game. They didn't earn many PossessionPoints for the go ahead field goal but in the end this was enough to win the game. This game ended with all indicators yellow, which would mean to us exactly what this game appeared to be. The Cowboys played better but not good enough to win and it became anybody's game in the end.
