Jets Beat Bengals for Playoff Victory
CINCINNATI (AP) -- With their rookie quarterback playing mistake-free, the New York Jets turned their surprising playoff appearance into a long-running production.

Mark Sanchez handled single-degree wind chills and the playoff pressure with no problems Saturday, throwing a touchdown pass on a rollout play, and the NFL's top running game took it from there, setting up a 24-14 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Sanchez went 12 of 15 for 182 yards, becoming the fourth rookie quarterback since 1950 to start and win a playoff game. Third-round pick Shonn Greene ran for 135 yards, including a 39-yard touchdown, as the Jets' rookies made plays under the biggest pressure.
