Jets Vs. Chiefs Halftime Score: Three Second-Quarter Touchdowns Helps New York Take 28-3 Lead Over Kansas City

Three second-quarter touchdowns -- two passing, one rushing -- has helped the New York Jets take a 28-3 halftime lead over the Washington Redskins in a Week 14 NFL match up at FedEx Field in Landover, MD. In consecutive possessions, wide receiver Santonio Holmes caught a four-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Mark Sanchez, running back Shonn Greene scored from seven yards out, while running back LaDainian Tomlinson caught a screen pass and ran it into the endzone from 19 yards to give the Jets (7-5) a commanding 25-point lead heading into the locker room.

The last time the New York scored 28 points in the first half was in Oct. of 2001 at Buffalo.

Holmes seventh touchdown of the season came first and capped a three-play, 38-yard drive that was setup by an interception by Jets' defensive back Jim Leonhard, who picked off a throw by Chiefs' quarterback Tyler Palko and ran the ball down to Kansas City's 38-yard line. Just a few plays later, Holmes helped New York earn a 14-3 lead with 10:07 to play in the first half.

On the Jets next possession, Greene ended a nine-play, 69-yard drive that finished with 4:01 to go in the first half.

Tomlinson's second touchdown of the season came at the tail end of the quarter, as the Jets defense forced a three-and-out and New York's punt returner Jeremy Kerley ran the ball to the Chiefs' 35-yard line. Three plays later, Tomlinson scored on a perfectly executed screen play.
