EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (AP) – Chad Pennington threw for three touchdowns and LaMont Jordan ran for two as the New York Jets showed they belong in the NFL playoffs with a rout of the Indianapolis Colts.

New York (10-7) began the season 1-4, but won seven of its last nine to storm to the AFC East title on the final day of the season. The surge continued against the wild-card Colts (10-7), who never were in the game as the Jets recorded their biggest victory in the playoffs.

It was their first postseason victory since 1998, when they made it to the AFC championship game, and the score matched the last playoff game at Giants Stadium, when the Giants beat Minnesota for the 2000 NFC title.
