Jags fall to lowly Jets

Jacksonville hosted the New York Jets on Sunday and held them to just under 280 yards. New York turned it over twice and converted only 4 of 13 third-down chances. Still, the Jaguars lost 17-10. 

Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell combined for 155 yards rushing, each scoring from close in the win. 

"Both those guys found holes because there were holes to be found," Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez said. "It was fun to watch."

Jacksonsville didn't score till late in the 4th quarter to keep it interesting. Chad Henne tossed two interceptions and completed just under 50 percent of his 43 throws on the day. 

"You've got to be the more physical team; to win in the NFL, that's what you have to do," Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny said. "Coming into this game, we felt like the Jets were going to run the ball; we didn't feel like they could beat us throwing the ball and then they rush for over a 100 yards. You have to give them credit. They were the more physical group, and that decided the game."
