Game review: Winners and losers

As Rex Ryan noted after the game, this probably was the Jets' most complete game of the season -- a 37-10 rout of the hapless Chiefs. Let's review:


Shonn Greene. He's making a habit of this, appearing in this category. Greene continued his late-season improvement, producing a career-high 187 yards from scrimmage. He even broke a long run -- 31 yards, the Jets' longest of the season.

Mark Sanchez. He had a hand in four touchdowns -- he passed for two and ran for two, becoming the first QB in Jets history to pull off that double-double. He also posted a season-high 121.3 passer rating.

Brandon Moore. We could go in a few different directions here, but we'll give it to Moore, who made his 118th consecutive start despite missing a week of practice with a hip injury. Sanchez gave Moore a shout-out after the game, and we will, too. His downfield blocking on screens was very good, as was C Nick Mangold.


Jim Leonhard. You can't get more down than this. Leonhard, the "quarterback" of the secondary and one of the true leaders on defense, suffered an apparent season-ending knee injury on an interception. Aside from the impact on the team, it's a personal blow because he's in the final year of his contract.

Donald Strickland. The only major glitch on defense was Jerheme Urban's 24-yard TD catch, and Strickland was responsible for the coverage.

Rex Ryan. We're nit-picking here, but we have to call out the coach for the decision to pass on fourth-and-4 from the Chiefs' 32, ahead by 25 points in the fourth quarter. It ended in a strip sack, but it could've ended in disaster, if Sanchez had sustained an injury. Otherwise, Ryan did a fantastic job.
