Not pretty at all- NY Jets beat Buffalo 19-13

The battle for AFC New York bragging rights took place in Toronto. From AP-

Looks like quarterback Mark Sanchez needs to take some more sliding lessons. At least the New York Jets’ bid to make a late-season playoff push is back on better footing.

Sanchez threw a go-ahead touchdown pass to Braylon Edwards before hurting his right knee, and the Jets’ stingy defense finished the job in a 19-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night.

The Jets (6-6) won their second straight game and moved within a victory of AFC East-leading New England (7-4), which plays at Miami on Sunday.

Sanchez was seen wearing a knee brace late in the game. Jets Coach described the knee injury as a mild sprain.

Anyone who talks about the Jets, or matter of fact the Miami Dolphins, as legitimate playoff teams are deluding themselves. Both teams have problems, a sputtering offense led by a apprentice defense in New York and a porous defense in Miami, that have made both teams play .500 so far this year. It just isn’t realistic to talk about either team turning it up and making a playoff run. New England will win the AFC East, the Jets and Dolphins are not going to make the playoffs.
