N.Y. heats up on frozen tundra

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- New York coach Eric Mangini showed his team a tape of the "Ice Bowl," and fullback B.J. Askew ran around shirtless in pre-game warmups to prove the cold wasn't so bad.

Then Chad Pennington stoked the Jets' hopes of an improbable playoff run.

Pennington put together three touchdown drives of 70 yards or more in the second quarter and the Jets cruised to a 38-10 win over Green Bay.

"I just think we're starting to click," Pennington said.

New York (7-5) built a 31-0 halftime lead as snow flurries floated to the ground and boos showered down.

The Packers fell to 4-8.
