Jets roll on to Philly


The Jets needed to take out the injury ridden Chiefs at home to stay on track for one of the two wild card spots in the AFC. It did not seem as though it would be much of a tough game for New York and right from the get go it was not. The Jets were able to put up 7 on the first drive of the game as Greene and Sanchez both came out sharp. The defense also came out strong. Not that the Chiefs had much of a threat on offense with Tyler Palko starting at QB. The Chiefs were able to muster up a field goal on their second drive of the game but that was the last score they would put up for quite a while in this one. The Jets offense stalled for a few drives after their first as Wayne Hunter allowed Mark Sanchez to get smacked around quite a bit. There was one scary moment for Jet fans as Sanchez appeared to have injured his shoulder but turned out to be fine. The next offensive drive started with a long screen pass to Greene and then a throw and catch from sanchez to Holmes. It was a beauty of a catch by Santonio. The Jets defense once again stuffed the Chiefs. Calvin Pace was flying around all day, as well as surprisingly, Marcus Dixon getting pressure. But, the story of the day was Shonn Greene. He had one of the best days of his young career. The guy is the key to the Jets season as they go forward in my opinion. He was running with authority today and was even making catches out of the backfield and taking them for big yardage. The first half was all Jets as they took a 28-3 lead into the second. There is not much to talk about from the first half as the Jets really just sat on the ball for the most part. Why Sanchez was dropping back on 4th and 4 with a 35-10 lead is beyond me, he almost got killed. But, he was ok and so are the Jets. With the Titans and Bengals falling the Jets will control their own destiny with a 4 p.m. loss from either Oakland or Denver. This was dominance from the Jets for the first time this season. We have been waiting for a full 60 minutes from this team all year and finally got it. It was refreshing to see Sanchez play well and Greene as well. The charge to the playoffs continues next week in Philadelphia.
