The New York Jets intercepted Luke McCown four times and sacked him in the end zone for a safety en route to a 32-3 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Antonio Cromartie returned one of his two interceptions to the 1-yard line and Shonn Greene punched it in two plays later for New York’s first rushing touchdown of the season.

The Jets (2-0) scored 15 points off turnovers and Mark Sanchez threw a pair of touchdown passes in the game. Sanchez hit Santonio Holmes on a 17-yarder to open the scoring early in the first quarter.

Sanchez later connected with tight end Dustin Keller for an 11-yard score in the third quarter as New York extended the lead to 22-3 in the third quarter.
