Jets Upset Patriots On Late Kick, 30-27

The sort of dramatic, implausible ending that can give a young team instant self-respect finally happened to the Jets yesterday before a Shea Stadium growd that alternately buried its head in its hands and leaped off its feet.

The decisive score was booted between the uprights by Pat Leahy, on a 32-yeard field goal with only 23 seconds left.

“A bunch of kids and we beat these guys. Amazing.”
