The New York Jets who are fighting for their playoff lives came to visit the Redskins Sunday. This game was very close most of the way but the Jets led by Shonn Greene, and Holmes dominated the 4th. Greene had 3 TD’s, and Holmes had a huge 30 yard TD catch late in the fourth. Gano gave the Skins the lead but the Jets stormed back.
Mark Sanchez was better than Grossman. He has now led the Jets to 10 4th quarter comebacks in his 3 year career. Helu looked good for the skins but he was not enough. The Skins have now lost 7 of 8. They fall to 4-8 with the loss. The Jets advance to 7-5 and are still very much alive in the playoff hunt. The Jets will be back home next week when they host the Chiefs. They will look to continue to run the ball with Greene who has played better despite playing hurt. They are now half way playing through the Skins division. NY will play in Philly in a couple weeks and then they play the Giants on Christmas Eve.
