Jets Beat Redskins 34 – 19

The New York Jets kept their playoff hopes alive with a win over the Washington Redskins.  The game was closer than the 34 – 19 score indicates but three 4th quarter touchdowns by the Jets put them over the top.

From the Associated Press:

Mark Sanchez hit Santonio Holmes for a 30-yard touchdown pass with 4:49 to play Sunday, and Shonn Greene added a pair of insurance scores to give the New York Jets a 34-19 win over the Washington Redskins.

It was Sanchez’s 10th career fourth-quarter comeback or overtime victory, including playoffs, and his second in as many weeks.

The win improves the Jets to 7-5 and keeps them in the realistic hunt for an AFC playoff berth.

New York played another mistake-filled game and had only 168 total yards after three quarters. They trailed 16-13 after Washington’s Graham Gano made his third field goal with 7:52 remaining.

Greene ran for 88 yards and three touchdowns.

  • Great job by the Jets fans that took the trip to D.C. (hearing J E T S JETS JETS JETS on TV is always a plus)
  • Here are injury updates on David Harris, Joe McKnight and L.T.
  • Who gets the Game Balls?
  • Update on the AFC Wild Card picture.
