Sanchez leads Jets to 37-10 rout of Chiefs

Posted: Updated:

Mark Sanchez threw two touchdown passes and ran for two more scores as the New York Jets kept pacein the AFC playoff race by cruising to a 37-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

The Jets, plagued by slow starts all season, got things started quickly in this one by scoring 28 points in the first half and were helped by an inept Chiefs offense that managed 4 total yards in the first two quarters.

Shonn Greene had a season-high 129 yards rushing and a score, and Santonio Holmes and LaDainian Tomlinson each caught touchdown passes for the Jets (8-5), who have won three straight and improved to 6-1 at home.

Tyler Palko was sacked five times for the Jets in a miserable outing by the penalty-plagued Chiefs (5-8), a week after he earned his first victory as a starter against Chicago.
