JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell ran for short touchdowns and the New York Jets kept their postseason hopes alive with a 17-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

The Jets (6-7) were shut out at halftime for the second consecutive week, but they didn't need to change quarterbacks to spark the offense this time around.

Instead, they just pounded the Jaguars (2-11) up the middle.

Mark Sanchez, benched last week in a 7-6 win against Arizona, was hardly a factor. Neither was backup Tim Tebow, who spent his homecoming on the sideline.

Greene scored on a 1-yard plunge in the third quarter, and Powell added a 4-yarder early in the fourth. Powell's score made it 17-3 in a game that looked every bit like one featuring two of the NFL's worst offenses.

Greene finished with 77 yards rushing. Powell added 78 yards on the ground.
