Jets Vs. Chiefs Final Score: New York Routs Kansas City, 37-10

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.

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.

Jets Vs. Chiefs Score Update: Mark Sanchez Rushing Touchdown Helps New York Take 7-3 Lead On Kansas City

A one-yard touchdown run by quarterback Mark Sanchez has helped the New York Jets take an early advantage over the Kansas City Chiefs, which trail 7-3 after one quarter of play in Week 14 NFL match up at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Sanchez capped a solid 11-play, 77-yard, game-opening drive with a naked bootleg that allowed him to trot into the endzone untouched.

The march, which was almost halted at the Chiefs three-yard line but a defensive hold call on 3rd-and-3 kept it alive, was highlighted by a 31-yard run by running back Shonn Greene, who busted up the middle on the game's first play. Green has 45-rushing yards on six carries.

Kansas City went three-and-out on its first possession of the game, but good field position on its second drive helped the Chiefs setup a 53-yard field goal attempt, which was made by kicker Ryan Succup with 4:41 to play.

The Jets second possession ended with a punt.

New York Jets Friday Injury Report: Mike DeVito Doubtful

The New York Jets will be relatively healthy Sunday when they take on the Kansas City Chiefs as they continue trying to remain in the thick of the race for a playoff berth in the AFC.

Defensive tackle Mike DeVito remains doubtful with a knee injury, which could mean more snaps for rookie Kenrick Ellis.

Listed as questionable are defensive tackle Marcus Dixon (hip), running back/kick return Joe McKnight (elbow) and guard Brandon Moore (hip).

Kansas City quarterback Kyle Orton is doubtful with a right index finger suffered in his debut with the Chiefs last week.

Jets coach Rex Ryan had this to say about the possibility of Ellis having to play more:

“I think if his role is just at that nose tackle spot, I think he’ll do much better. But, again, you have some growing pains. There have been times when he’s looked absolutely terrific, so I’m excited,” Ryan said. “He works extremely hard, and that means he’s going to (ascend). I think he’s got a bright future. There is no doubt about it.”
