Jets Shut Out Bengals To Make Playoffs

The Gang Green will see the Bengals again next Saturday, as they shut Cincinnati out tonight in what possibly was the last game played in the Giants Stadium. Many had predicted that the Jets would win, but not many thought that New York would simply annihilate the Bengals, 37-0.

The Jets offense amassed 257 yards on the ground, while the defense limited the Bengals to just 72 total yards and ZERO yards passing. WR Brad Smith led the team with 92 rushing yards on just 4 carries. RB Thomas Jones added 78 yards on 27 carries and scored two rushing touchdowns, setting a new Jets season record - 14 rushing touchdowns in one season.

QB Mark Sanchez played a mistake free game, although he threw only 16 passes. Sanchez finished the game 8 of 16 for 63 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT.

The defense came out with 3 turnovers and recorded 3 sacks. CB Darrelle Revis completely shut out WR Chad Ochocinco, who had zero catches.

Next Saturday the Jets will take on the Bengals again in the Wild Card Playoffs. The teams previously met in the playoffs just once in 1983 and the Jets slaughtered the Bengals 44-17.
