The Jets moved to 7-5 yesterday with a 34-19 victory over the Washington Redskins in Landover, MD. New York stayed in the middle of the AFC Playoff race with the win.
It was over when…
Shonn Greene broke a 25 yard touchdown run with 1:59 to go to put the Jets up 34-19. It was Greene’s third touchdown run of the game and second in under two minutes of game time.
Santonio Holmes hauled in a 30 yard touchdown pass, running a brilliant slant and go route to get wide open, with 4:57 left in the fourth quarter to give the Jets a 20-16 lead. Mark Sanchez delivered a perfect throw, but Holmes’ route left him wide open. It was the start of a 21 point New York outburst in the game’s final five minutes.
1. Shonn Greene: Greene only managed 88 yards on the ground, but he scored three times. The last two in the game’s waning moments came with authority and put it out of reach.
2. Santonio Holmes: For the second straight week, he put the Jets ahead late in the fourth quarter with a touchdown grab. He keeps adding to his legend as a clutch player.
3. Aaron Maybin: Maybin got extra snaps and made Rex Grossman uncomfortable throughout the game. His strip sack after Holmes’ touchdown grab set up one of Greene’s touchdowns to give New York a two score lead.
The Jets come home for a game with Kansas City next weekend.
The New York Jets dramatically improved their AFC playoff hopes on Sunday when they defeated the Washington Redskins, 34-19. The Jets (7-5) would still be outside the playoffs looking in if they began today, but record-wise they are tied with sixth-seeded Cincinnati, as well as with the Tennessee Titans and Oakland Raiders.
The Jets would lose a spot to the Bengals as things stand now, based on conference record. The Bengals are 6-4 in AFC games, while the Jets are just 5-5.
The Jets have now won two straight games. Their remaining schedule includes a home game against the Kansas City Chiefs, a visit to the disappointing Philadelphia Eagles, a home game against the New York Giants on Christmas Eve and a season-ending meeting on the road against the Miami Dolphins.

Quarterback Mark Sanchez completed 19-of-32 passes for 165 yards and a touchdown, which featured wide receiver Santonio Holmes scoring with 4:57 remaining in the fourth quarter to help the New York Jets edge the Washington Redskins, 34-19, in a Week 13 NFL match up at FedEx Field in Landover, MD. The Jets improve to 7-5 overall, while the Redskins fall to 4-8.
New York, which trailed 13-10 at halftime, used a 51-yard field goal by kickwe Nick Folk to tie the game at 13 midway through the third quarter and took a 20-16 lead on Holmes' sixth touchdown grab of the season.
The Jets iced the game when linebacker Aaron Maybe sacked and stripped Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman with 4:26 to go, and linebacker Calvin Pace recovered the ball at the Washington nine-yard line. Two plays later, Jets running back Shonn Greene scored his second of three rushing touchdowns of the day when he took a direct snap from the Wildcat formation and ran it into the end zone from one yard out to give the Jets a 27-16 lead with 3:48 remaining.
The Redskins ended up scoring a touchdown and cut the Jets lead to 27-19 with 1:59, but Washington failed to recover the onside kick, which was picked up by the New York's Antonio Cromartie, who ran the ball down to the Redskins' 30-yard line. On the next play, Greene ran in for his third touchdown of the game.
Greene finished with a 68 rushing yards on 22 caries, while Holmes ended the game with a team-best four catches for 68-receiving yards.
A 51-yard field goal by kicker Nick Folk has helped the New York Jets earn a 13-13 tie with the Washington Redskins in a Week 13 match up, which enters the fourth quarter. Folk's second field goal of the day capped a seven-play, 14-yard drive that was setup by good field position by New York's punt returner Jim Leonard, who returned a punt to the Redskins' 47-yard line.
The Jets, who trailed 13-10 at halftime, could have a 16-13 advantage, but Folk missed a 40-yard field goal attempt on New York's next possession. That Folk field goal was setup by a fumble by Washington's running back Roy Helu, who coughed up the ball at the Redskins' 24-yard line. New York's recovered the ball at Washington's 29-yard line. Four plays later, Folk missed the kick.
During the third quarter, the Redskins were held to a three-and-out on all four of their offensive possessions. However, Washington will start the fourth quarter will the ball and at its own 14-yard line.
New York Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson has returned to the Week 13 match up against the Washington Redskins after leaving the game early in the first quarter with a left knee injury. At the time, Tomlinson, who missed the last two Jets games because of a strained knee, was questionable for a return. However, Tomlinson saw some action in the second quarter, which ended with New York trailing Washington, 13-10.
So far, Jets' running back Shonn Greene has a team-best 32-rushing yards on 13 carries. Tomlinson has yet to carry the ball in the game, which is expected as he is being used mostly on third-down situations.
A pair of field goals by kicker Gano Graham has helped the Washington Redskins take a 13-10 halftime lead over the New York Jets in a Week 13 NFL match up at FedEx Field in Landover, MD. Graham's second made field goal of the quarter, a 23-yarder, came with just 24 seconds to go in the half and was set up by a muffed punt by Jets' wide receiver Jeremy Kerley. The Redskins (4-7) recovered the ball at New York's 16-yard line and just five plays later took a three-point advantage after Graham's kick split the uprights.
The Jets lone points of the second quarter came on a field goal by kicker Nick Folk, who nailed a 45-yard field goal with 3:12 remaining in the second and tied the game at 10. Folk's kick answered Graham's first field goal of the day, which was made from 33-yards out and just 3:23 seconds into the second.
Wasington began the game with a eight-play, 82-yard opening drive that ended with a two-yard touchdown run by running back Roy Helu, who helped give the Redskins a 7-0 advantage just 4:33 into the contest. New York answered and tied the game on its next possession when running back Shonn Greene scored a touchdown on a one-yard plunge. Greene's third touchdown of the season capped a 17-play, 74-yard drive that ended with 1:19 to play in the first.
Just when New York Jets fans thought their team was finally getting healthy an injury happened to one of its most productive offensive threats Sunday, as running back LaDianian Tomlinson left the Jets' Week 13 match up with the Washington Redskins with a left knee injury and is now questionable to return.
On the Jets six play of the day, Tomlinson, who missed the Jets last two games with a sprained knee, caught a pass from quarterback Mark Sanchez, ran 16 yards and was tackled by Redskin safety Oshiomogho Atogwe out of bounds. The replay showed Tomlinson's knee was clipped and the 32-year old running back was slow to get up.
New York Jets running back Shonn Greene's two-yard touchdown run with 1:19 to go in the first quarter has helped a Week 13 NFL match up against the Washington Redskins enter the second quarter tied at 7.

The Jets (6-5) are trying to keep pace in the AFC East playoff race, which currently has them on the outside looking in.

Greene's touchdown answered a touchdown drive by the Redskins (4-7), who capped a eight-play, 82-yard, game-opening drive with a two-yard touchdown by running back Roy Helu.

The New York Jets Week 13 injury report for its game against the Washington Redskins is out, and the Jets will be without two starters on defense, as defensive end Mike DeVito and linebacker Jamaal Westerman will not play in the contest. DeVito was ruled out earlier in the week with a MCL tear and will be replaced by Kenrick Ellis, while Garrett McIntyre will replace Westerman.

Good news for the Jets is that running back LaDainian Tomlinson and wide receiver Jeremy Kerley will be active. Both players missed New York's last two games with a sprained knees. ESPN New York.com is reporting to look for Tomlinson to have a strong rule in the Jets third-down game.

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan continues to espouse optimism despite his team’s mediocre 6-5 record and the fact that the Jets would not be in the playoffs if they started today.
“I don’t think we’re playing our best yet. I think the best is yet to come. Obviously, we’re running out of weeks. We have to get it done right now. We recognize that. We’re not ducking from that at all,” Ryan said. “We’ve done a lot of positive things. It’s just we kind of lack consistency. On offense, defense and special teams, we’ve been probably as good as it gets in the league, then there have been moments where we’ve been really poor.”
Ryan continues to believe the Jets can be a dangerous playoff team — if they can get there.
“We have playoff experience and I think that helps us. Obviously, we have to get there. We put ourselves in a big hole, but I know this group, we’re going to do whatever we can to fight out of it and find our way in. We know we have to scrap like crazy to get there,” Ryan said. “We feel very confident that if we get in there, we know what the playoffs are all about and we’ll do some damage.”

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson has been fined $10,000 by the NFL for a touchdown dance Sunday that mocked New York Jets wide receiver Plaxico Burress, a source told the Associated Press on Wednesday.
Johnson did not confirm that he had been fined at the team's practice, noting that he had received an overnight envelope from the NFL and left it unopened.
"If I do, I get fined. But we've got to move on," he said. "It's the Tennessee Titans. I'm not really worried about a fine right now. It's part of the game. People get fined. But we've still got a football game on Sunday."
After scoring a touchdown with a little more than two minutes remaining in the second quarter of Sunday's 28-24 Bills loss to the Jets, Johnson pretended to shoot himself in the thigh, using his hand as a gun. The choreographed celebration was designed to mimic Burress, who was arrested for shooting himself in 2008.
