TMZ Sports has obtained the 911 call made by New York Jets lineman Nick Mangold that seems to have brought down a major NJ crime spree ... and you can hear, Nick made all the RIGHT moves.
We broke the story ... Mangold's home was targeted by burglars last month -- only, he heard the bad guys trying to get into his car and immediately called for help.
During the call, Mangold remains calm and quiet and smartly DOES NOT try to confront the suspects.
Cops raced to the scene and eventually arrested 5 suspects. Cops believe the ring may have been responsible for nearly 50 burglaries in the area.
Props to Nick.
