The New York Jets continued their play-off push in the NFL with a 19-16 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday.

Randy Bullock kicked a late field-goal at AT&T Stadium as the Jets improved to a 9-5 win-loss record courtesy of their fourth straight win.

They are chasing a wildcard in the AFC, while the Dallas Cowboys' play-off chances were ended.

Ryan Fitzpatrick enjoyed a strong outing with 299 yards and a touchdown, while Kellen Moore had replaced the struggling Matt Cassel earlier for the Cowboys.

The Jets took a 6-3 lead at the end of the first quarter on Bilal Powell's 12-yard run, with officials overturning an Eric Decker fumble and that call standing after a challenge by the Cowboys.

After throwing an interception and taking an awful 19-yard sack, the Cowboys benched Cassel in place of Moore.

He threw his first NFL TD pass by hitting Dez Bryant on a 10-yard catch-and-run as the Cowboys took a 10-9 half-time lead.

Trailing 13-9, the Jets regained the lead on a three-yard touchdown pass from Fitzpatrick to Decker before Dan Bailey's 50-yard field-goal tied the game.

But Bullock's 40-yard attempt in the final minute would prove decisive as the Jets claimed an important win.
