DENVER (AP) — LaDainian Tomlinson scored his second touchdown from 2 yards out with 73 seconds left after a pass interference flag and the New York Jets rallied past the Denver Broncos 24-20 on Sunday.

On fourth-and-6 from the Denver 48, Denver safety Renaldo Hill and Jets receiver Santonio Holmes jostled near the goal line and the ball fell incomplete as the crowd went crazy. But field judge Gary Cavaletto threw his yellow flag and called Hill for pass interference.

The Broncos (2-4), who led most of the game, let Tomlinson score on the next play so they could get one last shot at the win.

A bad snap by J.D. Walton at midfield, however, was recovered by cornerback Dwight Lowery with 35 seconds left as the Jets (5-1) left Invesco Field with best record in the AFC.
