Cardinals vs. Jets: Full Highlights and Recap

Jesse ReedCorrespondent IDecember 2, 2012

The New York Jets did just enough to beat the Arizona Cardinals at home in Week 13, winning by a score of 7-6.

Mark Sanchez threw three interceptions before Rex Ryan finally benched him, but Tim Tebow wasn't the man he called into duty.

Greg McElroy came into the game and promptly turned things around, completing five-of-seven passes for 28 yards and the game's lone touchdown—a one-yard strike to Jeff Cumberland.

Shonn Greene rushed for 104 yards on 24 carries, Bilal Powell pitched in with 58 yards on 12 carries, and the Jets dominated the time-of-possession battle, holding on to the ball for over 38 minutes.

Rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley suffered through a miserable performance, completing just 10-of-31 passes for only 72 yards, throwing one interception.

The Jets improved to 5-7 on the season and will travel to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14, while the Cardinals fell to 4-8 and will travel to face the Seattle Seahawks next Sunday.
