Burress has successful debut with Jets

It was an extremely successful return for New York Jets wide receiver Plaxico Burress. He caught a 26-yard touchdown pass Sunday night in familiar fashion: on a fade route. And he celebrated by throwing the football into the stands.

"I felt like I was moving in slow motion a bit," Burress told reporters. "I was right there, where I was supposed to be."

Burress caught three passes for 65 yards from quarterback Mark Sanchez in one half of play.

This marked a big night for Burress, who signed with the Jets after being incarcerated in a New York prison for two years on a gun charge and being cut by the New York Giants.

Now, the former Giants Super Bowl hero is building a rapport with Sanchez and starting all over again with a fresh start in New York with Gotham City's other football team.

"I can see us really elevating our play," Burress said.
