MILWAUKEE — Relying on what New York Coach Joe Walton called "an old-fashioned knock 'em down game," the Jets Sunday defeated the Green Bay Packers, 24-3.
"Our pass rush really took them out of their rhythm," Walton said. "It was a big part of this game plan. We intended to go right at their passing game, and we had some success."
The Jets, who had five sacks, held the pass-oriented Packers to 193 yards offense--122 through the air.
An error-prone Green Bay offense--the Jets scored touchdowns off two fumbles and an interception--was at fault, Green Bay Coach Forrest Gregg said.
"When you get three points in a ball game you have to believe something's wrong," Gregg said. "That won't beat anybody. I am disturbed about the ball game, I am disturbed about the offensive production. I have been disturbed about the offensive production all year."
