Spadola shines as Jets beat Giants in overtime

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Lehigh grad Ryan Spadola put on a show in the Jets 24-21 overtime win over the Giants in a preseason game Saturday night.

Spadola caught three passes for a game-high 110 yards, including a 70-yard catch-and-run and a 22-yard touchdown catch.

Billy Cundiff kicked a 32-yard field goal with 8:04 left in overtime to give the Jets the win.

It's the only time the rivals will play this year unless they qualify for the cold-weather Super Bowl here in February. The way the Jets (2-1) and Giants (1-2) played, it's highly unlikely.

The Jets quarterback picture got even murkier, too, despite winning the annual bragging rights game.

Rookie Geno Smith struggled. Mark Sanchez seemingly hurt his right shoulder, and his status is suddenly in question two weeks before the season opener. The only guy who looked good was Matt Simms.

The Jets' quarterback situation has been the No. 1 question mark for Rex Ryan's team since training camp opened. The seriousness of Sanchez's injury was not immediately known, and Smith didn't look ready for prime time.
