Well, Sanchez and Greene might want to make a habit of breaking bread together more often. Rex Ryan's ''Ground-and-Pound'' offense returned in a big way Sunday as Greene ran for a career-high 161 yards and three touchdowns on 32 carries to power the Jets to a 35-9 rout of Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. ''When you're running the ball that well,'' Sanchez said, ''you never want to stop.''

Jets' running game comes to rescue

The New York Jets finally figured out a way to silence the interminable debate about which of their high profile quarterbacks should be throwing the ball on offense.
