    Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell each had rushing scores and the New York Jets held on for a 17-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

    Greene rushed for 77 yards on 20 carries while Powell amassed 78 yards on 19 rushes for New York (6-7), which was coming off a 7-6 win over Arizona and has strung together consecutive victories for the first time all season.

    A week after being pulled against the Cardinals, Mark Sanchez fumbled in the first half and connected on 12-of-19 throws overall for just 111 yards, but completed a 37-yard strike late in the contest to force Jacksonville to use all three of its timeouts.

    Chad Henne led the Jaguars (2-11) into Jets territory on their final possession, but was intercepted by Ellis Lankster to seal the win for New York.

    Henne passed for 185 yards, but completed just 21-of-43 throws and was picked off twice in Jacksonville's ninth loss in 10 games while Montell Owens ran for the Jaguars' only touchdown, finishing with 91 yards on 14 carries in defeat.

    with the steelers and bengals both losing, the jets are now just 1 game out of the afc wild card spot ......... :wtf1:

    and the jets don't face a team for the rest of the year with more than 5 wins........

    In all honesty, with as bad as the Jets have played all season long, they are exactly where they should be, and should have been from the beginning. The should split with Miami, they should lose both to NE, lose to Pitt, Houston, SF. Seattle was a toss-up on my radar, and they lost. They should have beaten Buffalo, Arizona, STL, and Jacksonville.

    They have played like crap, but they beat who they should and lose to who they should for the most part. They *should* win out the season, probably won't. If they do, Pitt or Cinci will need to close them out.
