Shonn Greene, the fourth year running back, had a career day rushing for 161 yards on 32 carries with three touchdowns as the New York Jets dominated Indianapolis Colts.
It was Greene’s best day since back in 2009 when he rushed for 144 yards and two touchdowns against the Oakland Raiders.
After four straight games with less than a 50 percent completion percentage, Mark Sanchez didn’t set the world on fire, but didn’t need to.
Sanchez managed the game. He finished 11 of 18 for 82 yards, but he did have two touchdown throws to Stephen Hill and Jason Hill.
“When you’re running the ball that well,” quarterback Mark Sanchez said, “you never want to stop.” According to ESPN.com.… Read more

Shonn Greene was among the NFL's worst rushers entering Week Six, but a career day against the Indianapolis Colts just may have saved his starting job and given the Jets' season new life.
Shonn Greene ran for a career-high 161 yards and three touchdowns to power a rejuvenated ''Ground-and-Pound'' offense that rushed for more than 250 yards, Mark Sanchez was efficient and Tim Tebow made a few big plays in a 35-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
Even the Jets' maligned defense was able to shut down Andrew Luck and the Colts' offense...

It was a virtuoso performance for Shonn Greene and New York's rushing offense as the Jets blasted the Colts on Sunday at Metlife Stadium
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. All they had to do was stop throwing the ball so much.
It didn't really matter who was under center for New York during the team's 35-9 rout of the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday at MetLife Stadium -- though,...
Mark Sanchez was at dinner with his running backs last week when Shonn Greene's meal arrived at the table.
Talk about a heaping helping.
''I think Shonn got the biggest steak you could possibly have,'' the New York Jets quarterback said with a smile. ''He eats like a lineman. He needed it all today, though, so that was good for him.''
I'm guessing a lot of remote controls made their way through television screens yesterday as Shonn Greene owners that kept the plodding Jet sidelined and RG3 owners that were scared by the late game questionable tag and opted for an alternative are likely looking at a fantasy L this week. Today we present a recap of yesterday's goings on with a fantasy perspective (as if...
Running back Shonn Greene answered the bell against the Colts as the Jets earned a much-needed home win on Sunday.
It was an ugly game, but it's time for some links anyway.
Mike Chappell, in his Colts Insider column for The Indianapolis Star, says the Colts had hoped to make the Jets one-dimensional by stopping the run and force the erattic Mark Sanchez to try to beat them. They just couldn't:
"We wanted to put the game in his hands and hopefully get him to make some mistakes...
Week 5 of the NFL season was much calmer for the gunslingers of the league as no one put up a Tony Romo-like 5 interceptions this week. That is still the leader in the clubhouse for best gunslinger performance of the season and I have a feeling that’s going to be a tough one to beat especially considering that Matt Cassel just got injured. However, if I know one thing about gunslingers...
The New York Jets (3-3) beat the Indianapolis Colts (2-3) 35-9, yesterday afternoon at MetLife Stadium from East Rutherford, NJ.
J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets! Shonn Greene played his best game of the season by running all over the Colts defense.
Who needs Mark Sanchez, when you have you ground and pound getting the job done. The Jets rushing offense ran for over 252 yards.
This is going to be a common theme this week. After Richard Sherman's Twitter antics following Seattle's win this past Sunday and the upcoming game against the ever so lovable New York Jets, expect the Patriots to take a lot of heat.Sexy Rexy has already gone on record today stating that "I want them to know and they know that I think we are going to beat them."...
Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez hit rookie Stephen Hill for a five yard touchdown today vs. the Colts. After the score, Hill had a pretty nifty little celebration dance, bringing back some old moves from his childhood.

We are starting to see a new Jets team branding themselves out there, are we not? It’s early in the process we know. After all, Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes just left Gang Green for the year only weeks back. Since then however, this no name bunch of young Jets has teamed up with written off starters like Mark Sanchez and Shonn Greene to battle the then undefeated Texans,...
Monday's film session isn't changing the opinion of Colts interim coach Bruce Arians.
He still saw all those mistakes in full, vivid detail - the missed tackles, the missed blocks, the turnovers and the decision to try and do too much too fast.
So one day after yielding 252 yards rushing and 35 points to a New York Jets offense that had scored only 17 points in the previous...
