EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) _ Shonn Greene ran for a career-high 161 yards and three touchdowns to power a rejuvenated ``Ground-and-Pound'' offense that rushed for more than 250 yards, Mark Sanchez was efficient and Tim Tebow made a few big plays in a 35-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
 
  Even the Jets' maligned defense was able to shut down Andrew Luck and the Colts' offense as New York snapped a two-game losing streak that had many wondering if the season was about to spiral out of control.
 
  For a week, at least, Sanchez was in total control and the Jets (3-3) had their best overall performance _ save for a handful of personal foul penalties _ since an opening-week rout of Buffalo. 
 
  Indianapolis (2-3) trailed 21-6 at halftime and couldn't erase a big deficit for the second straight week after coming back from 18 points and beating Green Bay last Sunday.
