Jets 28, Bills 24

Mark Sanchez threw four touchdown passes, including the winning score to Santonio Holmes with just more than a minute remaining, as the New York Jets kept pace in the AFC playoff race with a comeback victory over Buffalo in East Rutherford, N.J. With the Jets trailing 24-21 and facing a third-and-11 from the Bills 36, Sanchez connected with Plaxico Burress, who made an impressive one-handed grab for the first down. Sanchez quickly ran a quarterback sneak and then, on the next play, rolled out to his right to buy some time and found Holmes alone in the right corner of the end zone to give the Jets the lead with 1:01 left.

It was good enough for their fifth consecutive win, which moved Houston a little closer to clinching the AFC South.
