Jets might've found their way

TORONTO -- The New York Jets have moved the ball however they've chosen against the Buffalo Bills, but it took them almost 30 minutes to get it into the end zone.

The Jets lead the Bills 16-10 at halftime Thursday night in the Rogers Center.

After misfiring for much of the first half, the Jets gathered themselves at the two-minute warning for an impressive touchdown drive. On third-and-5 from their 36-yard line, Mark Sanchez fired a laser to Jerricho Cotchery up the right seam for a 44-yard gain.

Two plays later, Sanchez tossed to Braylon Edwards, who dove into the end zone for a 13-yard touchdown. Edwards apparently has made it his mission to compensate for dropping what would have been an 84-yard touchdown dash in the first quarter. Edwards has made three sensational plays since then and has 45 yards.

Sanchez overcame a shaky start -- he overthrew Cotchery for what should've been an 11-yard touchdown -- to finish the half 6 of 13 for 107 yards and a touchdown. Sanchez has zero interceptions. In case you'd forgotten, he threw five picks the first time he played the Bills.

Jets running back Thomas Jones had 10 carries for 58 yards.

The Bills had one nice scoring drive on the back of Marshawn Lynch, who ran four times for 59 yards, including the final 15 for the touchdown.

Jets cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Lito Sheppard have been alternating between Terrell Owens and Lee Evans and they are doing a fine job. Owens has zero catches. Evans has one catch for 38 yards.
