Last week: 27 (+1) Record: 4-6 The Jets were bound to bounce back last week. Teams that lose back-to-back games by 21 or more go 36-16 ATS in their next game. However, it still isn’t a promising sign going forward. For every one good Mark Sanchez performance, he has 3 bad ones. Don’t believe me? This year he’s had 3 games in which he’s had a QB rating over 90 in which he attempted 20 or more passes (including last week). In the game immediately after the first 2, he was a combined 38 of 81 for 421 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception, he led his team to 19 combined points in a 9 point loss and a 21 point loss. In fact, excluding those 3 games and one in which he passed for just 82 yards, but still had a QB rating over 100 somehow, his season high QB rating was 66.6. This week, on short rest, he gets a red hot and pissed off Patriots team that has added a new #1 cornerback since the last time they played. They’re stuck with Sanchez into 2013 because he’s owed 8.25 million fully guaranteed, but let’s hope that once Rex Ryan and Mike Tannenbaum are fired, the new regime will send Tebow somewhere he can start, because he is one of the top-32 quarterbacks in the NFL. Studs QB Mark Sanchez: 15 of 20 for 178 yards and a touchdown, 2 drops, 107.8 adjusted QB rating, pressured on 4 of 24 drop backs (3 sacks, 0 of 1) LT D’Brickashaw Ferguson: Did not allow a pressure on 24 pass block snaps, run blocked for 5 yards on 2 attempts C Nick Mangold: Did not allow a pressure on 24 pass block snaps, run blocked for 52 yards on 13 attempts RG Brandon Moore: Did not allow a pressure on 24 pass block snaps, run blocked for 28 yards on 6 attempts SS Eric Smith: Allowed 2 catches for 17 yards on 7 attempts, 1 interception, 3 solo tackles, 1 stop Duds WR Stephen Hill: Did not catch a pass on 2 attempts on 11 pass snaps, 1 drop, 1 penalty LE Mike DeVito: Did not record a pressure on 10 pass rush snaps, 1 missed tackle MLB Bart Scott: 1 assist, 1 missed tackle, was not thrown on
