The Jets looked bad Monday night against Houston. Six days later the Jets looked like an impressive football team.
On the ground is where the Jets beat the Colts. Shonn Greene was given the ball early and often. The maligned running back toted the ball 32 times for 161 yards and 3 touchdowns. James McKnight offered to be a perfect change of pace getting 3 carries himself and torching the Colts for 71 yards himself.
The passing game for the Jets still looked a tad shaky. Mark Sanchez was not required to do too much for the Jets but did manage 2 touchdown passes on a day he was 11-for-18 with 82 yards passing. Tim Tebow connected on a 24 yard pass on his lone attempt.
The Colts rallied late last week to upend Green Bay but could manage little against the Jets. Quarterback Andrew Luck did not get his completion percentage above 50% until late in the fourth quarter. Hed did not manage a touchdown and tossed two interceptions. Luck also fumbled the ball once which was recovered by David Harris.
Early in the game Adam Vinatieri connected for a field goal. It marked the 38th consecutive game in which he had kicked a field goal. All of Indianapolis’ points came off of field goals by Vinatieri.
