Found November 21, 2012 on Patriots Life:
Thursday night will mark the second meeting between the New York Jets and the New England Patriots, which means barring some sort of Tebow Time incident we'll be seeing the second showdown between Mark Sanchez and the Patriots pass defense. Not many glowing things have been said about either of these entities, so it's not exactly a clash of the titans, but an interesting matchup nonetheless. In their last meeting - Week 7 in New England - Sanchez was actually able to have some success besides the Jets' loss. The Jets quarterback went 28-for-41 for 328 yards and a touchdown, which didn't make the Pats pass defense look too good. However, the Pats did sack Sanchez four times, intercept him once and cause two fumbles (one of which Sanchez lost). Obviously, neither was exactly stunning against the other. Let's go to the tale of the tape for Thursday.Mark SanchezQB rating: 73.4 - 29th in the NFLCompletion percentage: 53.5 percent - last among eligible QBsPassing yards...

Video: Mark Sanchez gives us a legendary football folly
