Nick Folk kicked a 22-yard field goal and Muhammad Wilkerson blocked a Tennessee Titans field-goal attempt to give the New York Jets a 3-0 lead at the end of the first quarter Monday night. The Jets (6-7) were attempting to keep their faint playoff hopes alive. They entered the night needing to win their three remaining games and to receive some help from others to have any hope of reaching the postseason. The Jets host San Diego and travel to Buffalo in their final two games. New York appeared to reach the end zone on its opening possession when tight end Jeff Cumberland caught a 4-yard pass from Mark Sanchez on third-and-goal, but the original ruling of a touchdown was overturned after replays showed the ball hit the ground. The Jets got plenty of assistance from Tennessee on that field-goal drive. The Titans were penalized three times, including a defensive holding penalty and a face-mask call on safety Jordan Babineaux. The holding penalty on Babineaux gave the Jets an automatic first down on what would have been a third-down incompletion. At least the Jets got points out of their march into the red zone. The Titans also drove inside the 20 on their opening possession and didn't get anything out of it. After a 15-yard reception and a 30-yard catch by Nate Washington helped Tennessee advance to the red zone, Calvin Pace stuffed Chris Johnson for a 10-yard loss on third-and-1 from the 18. Wilkerson then blocked Rob Bironas' 46-yard field-goal attempt. Before the game, a moment of silence was held for victims of the shootings Friday in Newtown, Conn. Twenty children and six adults were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The gunman also killed his mother in her home before committing suicide. Johnson had the names of all the victims written on the two shoes he wore for the game.
