Jets 34, Redskins 19: Hogmollies Dominate

The Jets’ offensive line, outplayed and underwhelming most of this season, dominated up front to lead Gang Green to a huge victory on Sunday in Landover, MD.

The unit stepped up to protect quarterback Mark Sanchez, created holes for running back Shonn Greene to rumble for three touchdowns, and set the tone for a fourth quarter of domination. Offensive tackles D’Brickashaw Ferguson and Wayne Hunter, the latter who has been beaten much of the season, stepped up to block the dynamic Redskin pass rushing duo of Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan.

Mark Sanchez was not sacked for the second consecutive week. Not coincidentally, he was upright and fresh enough to make enough fourth quarter passes to win the game. He had nothing but praise for the group of hogmollies up front after the game.

“Just a phenomenal job,” Sanchez said. “They’re getting coached hard by Coach Callahan. He isn’t cutting them any slack in practice, and it’s showing. They’ve taken to some tough coaching.”

Ferguson said the team is just trying to get back to the level they are accustomed to over the past few successful seasons.  “We just try to be consistent. This is an offensive line that has had some high success in recent years.”

The group will have to be at their best on Sunday when the Kansas City Chiefs legit pass rush, led by Tamba Hali and Justin Houston, comes to MetLife Stadium.
