The New York Jets (6-7) beat the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-11) 17-10, yesterday afternoon at EverBank Field from Jacksonville, FL. The Running game wins for the Jets as they kept rushing the football downfield and let Mark Sanchez play as a manageable QB. It was obvious Rex Ryan and Tony Sparano had no faith in Mark Sanchez so they just kept running the football for most of the game. The Jets have won ugly for back-to-back weeks, even though their playoff hopes are still alive despite they have no hope even if they make the postseason. Game Stats: Passing Mark Sanchez played well enough as a managebale QB and that was about it. He went 12 for 19 with 111 passing yards and commited a fumble. Rushing Shonn Greene had an excellent day running the football by getting 20 carries for 77 rushing yards and scored a touchdown. Bilal Powell had a great day as well by getting 19 carries for 78 rushing yards and scored a rushing touchdown too. Receiving Jeff Cumberland only made one reception for 37 yards. Jeremy Kerley made the most catches by getting 4 receptions for 27 yards. Chaz Schilens caught two passes for 27 yards. Mardy Gilyard made his Jets debut catching two receptions for 15 yards. Special Teams Nick Folk made a 44 yard field goal Defense Bart Scott and Ellis Lankster each caught one INT. David Harris had one sack and 10 tackles. Muhammed Wilkerson had one sack and 3 tackles. Quinton Coples had one sack and 2 tackles. Total Stats The Jets offense had 17 first downs, 270 toal yards, 166 rushing yards, went 4 for 13 on 3rd down conversions and scored 17 points. The Jets defense held the Jags offense to 16 first downs, 291 total yards, forced two turnovers, sacked Chad Henne three times and allowed only 10 points. Final Thoughts The Jets are still alive for the second wild card spot in the AFC only trailing the Steelers (who leads 2nd WC) and Bengals by one game. Gang Green would have to win out if they have chance to make the playoffs and hope their defense gets it done for them or the season will be officially done for. Week 15 (Dec 17th) - The New York Jets (6-7) will play the Tennessee Titans (4-9) on Monday night football in LP Field at 8:30 pm on ESPN (TV) and WEPN (Radio).

No Huddle – Jets Still Alive Edition

Are the Jets 6-7 and still alive in the AFC Wildcard race? Yes, if you can believe it. Rex Ryan pulled out some late 2009 magic dust and sprinkled it on Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, after yet another must win over the Jags and an exhausting week playing “Who Is My Quarterback?” The fact that this current roster is in the postseason hunt with three games left is a testimony to someone...

Only in New York? Greg McElroy declared inactive for Jets after leading them to victory in week 13

Per multiple sources including Jason LaCanfora on twitter Tim Tebow is active today for the Jets. Tebow has been the second man on the Jets depth chart all year; so, maybe it was a ‘can’t lose your spot due to injury’ piece; maybe Rex Ryan thinks he’s their best backup quarterback; or maybe it was a marketing ploy by Woody Johnson and/or NFL higherups; either way, McElroy...
