Behind a solid performance by running back Shonn Greene and four touchdowns from quarterback Mark Sanchez, the New York Jets defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, 37-10, in a Week 14 NFL match up at FedEx Field in Landover, MD. Greene finished the game with 129-rushing yards on 24 carries with a touchdown, while Sanchez tossed for two touchdowns and ran for two more for the Jets, who improve to 8-5 overall and now hold sole possession of the AFC's last playoff spot after the Cincinnati Bengals lost to the Houston Texans, 20-19. The Chiefs fall to 4-9.
Ahead 7-3 after the first quarter, New York blew the game open with three second-quarter touchdowns to help take a 28-3 halftime lead. Greene's lone touchdown run was sandwiched between touchdown receptions from wide receiver Santonio Holmes and running back LaDainian Tomlinson, who helped the Jets take a 25-point lead into the half.
Sanchez gave New York a commanding 35-3 lead after scoring his second rushing touchdown of the game with 4:11 to play in the third quarter. Sanchez completed 13-of-21 passes for 181-passing yards and did not play in most of the fourth quarter.
