East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) – It took six games to materialize, but ground-and-pound football finally returned for the New York Jets.

As part of a 252-yard rushing attack, Shonn Greene ran for a career-high 161 yards and three touchdowns behind the Jets’ best defensive effort of the season, dropping the Indianapolis Colts, 35-9, at Metlife Stadium.

New York’s defense generated four turnovers and didn’t allow a touchdown for the first time all season. With his starting job on the line, quarterback Mark Sanchez passed for 82 yards and two touchdowns on 11-of-18 efficiency, the first time he has completed over fifty percent of his passes since Week 1.

Stephen Hill and Jason Hill each caught touchdown passes for New York, which was able to stave off its first three-game losing streak at home since 2009.

Andrew Luck, who led an inspired Indianapolis team to a 30-27 comeback win over Green Bay last week, struggled on Sunday and could not produce a similar result. He completed 22-of-44 passes for 280 yards and threw two interceptions for the Colts, who lost their second road game of the season in blowout fashion.

Adam Vinatieri scored all of the Colts’ points, converting three field goals from 20, 50 and 47 yards out.
