Jets Honor 2000 'Monday Night Miracle' Team

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets celebrated the 10-year anniversary of the team that pulled off the "Monday Night Miracle" against the Miami Dolphins 10 years ago.

Quarterback Vinny Testaverde, wide receiver Wayne Chrebet, offensive tackle Jumbo Elliott and kicker John Hall were among the players — wearing their Jets jerseys — honored at halftime of New York's game against Minnesota on Monday night.

The Jets trailed the Dolphins 30-7 after three quarters at the old Giants Stadium on Oct. 23, 2000, before storming back and winning 40-37 in overtime.

Testaverde spoke for his teammates, and rattled off some of the more memorable plays from that night — including the tying touchdown catch by "the sure-handed Jumbo Elliott."
