EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Alec Ogletree saw the football zipping his way and knew he needed to get his hands on it.
After getting the ball with 2:55 remaining and down by three, Petty tried to lead the Jets (3-7) down the field. But on second-and-7 from the 42, Petty's pass to Quincy Enunwa was picked off by Ogletree, who took it out of the receiver's hands and Enunwa then tried to wrestle it away from the linebacker to no avail.
"I had that area of zone and I was playing the receiver," Ogletree said. "I saw him throw the ball. We kind of tied up and I was able to rip it out from him and make the play."
"We had to fight and scrap all the way to the end," Ogletree said. "That's what it takes to win and I was right there to make the play. We really couldn't get on the plane without winning here."
Petty, a fourth-round draft pick out of Baylor last year, went 19 of 32 for 163 yards with a touchdown and the loss-sealing interception.
"I'm not going to let this define my career," Petty said. "I'm not going to let this define me."
Fitzpatrick was listed as questionable with a sprained left knee , suffered last weekend at Miami. Coach Todd Bowles said throughout the week that Fitzpatrick would remain the starter for Sunday's game - as long as he was healthy enough to play.
After the game, Bowles said Fitzpatrick wasn't "completely healthy." The two split first-team snaps during practice all week.
"No, I'm not going into the quarterback situation," coach Jeff Fisher said. "As I said, I don't believe it's the quarterback play. Collectively, we're just making mistakes here and there."
Nick Folk was wide left on the extra point, his second miss of the season, leaving New York with a 6-3 lead early in the second quarter.
Zuerlein tied it at 6 with 20 seconds left in the third quarter with a 38-yard field goal.
"I thought Case did a nice job," Fisher said. "We didn't get the ball in the end zone, but he scrambled and picked up some key first downs and kept drives alive. That's what you have to do against a defense like this."
