Jets fly high- find winning ways against Indianapolis

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Shonn Greene ran for a career-high 161 yards and three touchdowns to power a rejuvenated "Ground-and-Pound" offense that rushed for more than 250 yards, Mark Sanchez was efficient and Tim Tebow made a few big plays in a 35-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
Even the Jets' maligned defense was able to shut down Andrew Luck and the Colts' offense as New York snapped a two-game losing streak that had many wondering if the season was about to spiral out of control.
For a week, at least, Sanchez was in total control and the Jets (3-3) had their best overall performance - save for a handful of personal foul penalties - since an opening-week rout of Buffalo.
Indianapolis (2-3) trailed 21-6 at halftime and couldn't erase a big deficit for the second straight week after coming back from 18 points and beating Green Bay last Sunday.
