Jets take week off again

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Ugly. Sloppy. And, perhaps, a little rusty.

It all added up to one big dud for the Jets.

Mason Crosby kicked three field goals for Green Bay, and that was all the Packers needed as they held the Jets off the scoreboard for a 9-0 victory Sunday.

"I wish we could play it again, do it over," Jets coach Rex Ryan said. "But there are no do-overs in this league."

Good thing, since once was bad enough for the Jets.

"It felt embarrassing to be shut out at home," right tackle Damien Woody said.

New York, which entered tied for the league's best record, had its five-game winning streak end and was shut out for the first time since a 10-0 loss Nov. 19, 2006, at home to Chicago.

"We love to be underdogs," Packers safety Nick Collins said. "Everybody thinks the Jets are the team to win the Super Bowl. We wanted to come in here and match their intensity and show them that we can play with anybody."

But quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense didn't exactly light things up, either.

The wind might have caused some problems for both teams' passing and kicking games. Crosby and the Jets' Nick Folk missed field goals; Rodgers and New York's Mark Sanchez misfired often with balls sailing past receivers.

The Jets had a drive end in the fourth quarter when tight end Dustin Keller caught a pass, rolled, then had the ball grabbed out of his hands by Packers cornerback Charles Woodson. Replays showed it should not have been an interception, but New York was out of challenges.

That set up Crosby's 41-yard field goal for a 6-0 lead.

The Jets also lost on a huge gamble early, on fourth and 18 from their 20, as punter Steve Weatherford took off running on a fake but stepped out of bounds a yard short of a first down.
