Tied at 5-3 heading into last night’s game, the New York Jets and the New England Patriots were both playing must-win football. The Jets needed to win to avenge their Week 5 loss to the Pats and get a leg up in the AFC East standings. The Pats needed to win to basically bury the Jets’ hopes, take the lead in the standings...
Mark Sanchez brushed off the recent criticism from Jets coach Rex Ryan, saying the botched timeout against the Patriots was "a stupid play."
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Mark Sanchez can do the math. While saying he wasn't conceding the AFC East title, Sanchez echoed Rex Ryan in pretty much doing that Tuesday when he said "the writing's on the wall" for the Jets to be battling for a wild-card spot down the stretch.
