~”Excellent road victory, just like we talked about as a team, it was the first time we’ve had a shutout on the road since 1991. I’m very proud of our defense, I thought they were outstanding today particularly with the three turnovers and the two big stops on fourth down.”
— Packers head coach Mike McCarthy

“It’s a credit to our players and I’ll tell you what, it’s a credit to our defensive staff. To have four transactions in one week and to get the players acclimated. Juggling the 53 to the 45, it was really a challenge, particularly for Shawn Slocum, I can’t say enough about the job he has done because that’s the first area that has been affected by our changing of the depth chart week to week and I thought Dom [Capers] did a very good job of inserting those guys.”

“It feels really good to win on the road against one of the better teams in the AFC and NFL on their turf. The defense really held us up, (we) came through with some clutch drives and we got the field goals. It feels real good.”
— Packers receiver Greg Jennings

Greg Jennings beats Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie for a completed pass Sunday in New Jersey.

“It’s a big one, but that’s just the way this season has gone. We’ve had some close games that have come down to the final plays, gone into overtime and we’ve come out on the wrong end of them. Today, (it was) a tough defensive battle and ours came up big and came up with a big win.”
— Packers cornerback Charles Woodson

“We know the type of players we have on this team. We know the type of team that we have. It doesn’t matter what everyone else says or thinks.”
— Packers safety Charlie Peprah

“I think our defense did a really good job today. It was a great effort. They held them to nine points, and we need to help them out on offense. That starts with the quarterback. I can’t give them picks like that. I was happy with the decisions, but the throws have to be better. It was a poor performance by myself, and it’s tough to get an offense going when your quarterback isn’t playing well.”
— Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez

“I think some passes just got away from me. The thing was that I was making the right decisions witht he ball, I just wasn’t putting it in the right spot, and I have to help the receivers out. When I’m not playing well, it’s really hard for (offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer) to make the right calls. It’s hard to get the running game going when we’re not getting completions, and we left a lot of completions out there today. It’s just a poor job on my part.”

“I thought our defense was outstanding. We held them to 14 percent on third-down conversions. We didn’t it done as a team. We had a coulpe of costly interceptions, and that’s all I’ll say about it. I thought Mark (Sanchez) wasn’t throwing the ball very effectively in the first half, I thought he threw it much better in the second half, but we just couldn’t catch it. That’s uncharacteristic of this football team to drop some balls. It’s just frustrating. (Kicker) Nick (Folk) missed a field goal that he’s been making in his sleep. We just weren’t good enough today.”
— Jets coach Rex Ryan

“This was something that (punter) Steve (Weatherford) did on his own. I don’t think he realized we’d just been sacked. We told him before that it needed to be a manageable situation, not fourth-and-20 or whatever it was. As he was running, I was trying to make sure he knew where the first down marker was. I don’t think he was clear on that.”
