EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Chad Pennington stepped into the end zone, spiked the football and then pumped his fist and bumped chests with some teammates.
Jets QB Chad Pennington showed great toughness and resolve playing with limited movement with his previously sprained ankle. The Jets offensive line appeared to protect better and Pennington showed poise and patience in the pocket, especially converting third-down situations. The way that Pennington performed was reminiscent of how he led his team to the postseason in 2006. His vision, accuracy and timing made it tough on a banged-up Miami secondary. Pennington used the no-huddle offense most of the game to keep Miami off balance and make plays when needed to get the Jets the win.

Shaun Ellis' sack in the first quarter was the Jets' first this season, and Rhodes' interception in the third quarter was the Jets' first takeaway. ... Miami's Chris Chambers had six catches for 101 yards. ... The Jets honored former wide receiver Wayne Chrebet during a ceremony at halftime.
this is a test
