EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Darrelle Revis returned one of the Jets' four interceptions 67 yards for a touchdown and New York overcame an injury scare to quarterback Mark Sanchez before holding on to beat the Carolina Panthers 17-6 on Sunday.
Thomas Jones had a 3-yard touchdown run as the Jets (5-6) won at home for the first time since beating Tennessee in Week 3. New York also kept its slim playoff hopes alive by sending Carolina (4-7) to its second straight loss.
Sanchez left for four plays in the third quarter with an apparent injury to his left leg that at first looked serious. After being worked on by trainers, Sanchez tested the leg and returned for the next series.
Kerry Rhodes, demoted in favor of Eric Smith, intercepted Jake Delhomme twice.
