Mark Sanchez hit Santonio Holmes for a 30-yard touchdown pass with 4:49 to play Sunday, and Shonn Greene added a pair of insurance scores to give the New York Jets a 34-19 win over the Washington Redskins.

It was Sanchez’s 10th career fourth-quarter comeback or overtime victory, including playoffs, and his second in as many weeks.


The win improves the Jets to 7-5 and keeps them in the realistic hunt for an AFC playoff berth.

New York played another mistake-filled game and had only 168 total yards after three quarters. They trailed 16-13 after Washington’s Graham Gano made his third field goal with 7:52 remaining.

Greene ran for 88 yards and three touchdowns.

The Redskins fell to 4-8. They have lost seven of eight.
