On the third down catch that Plaxico Burress made…
I don’t know if words do it justice. It was a big time catch in a crucial situation and it really gave us a chance to take the lead there and either have a gimme field goal or go for the lead like we ended up doing. So if that doesn’t happen we have a real long field goal ahead of us, and he just made it a lot easier on our kick team and gave us an extra chance to win.
On the touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes…
I felt the right side of the line collapse, and they did a good job of keeping them inside. They collapsed the defense, I want to make sure I phrase that right, and just left a wide open hole to the right. So I started running, (and) I’m ready to throw it away or get a couple yards and get out of bounds and save some time. Coach (Matt) Cavanaugh just reminds us to remain a passer and keep your eyes up.

From Rich Cimini’s blog:
Game officials seem to have it out for QB Mark Sanchez. He has been victimized by at least two illegal hits that resulted in fines — the Broncos’ Von Miller ($25,000) and the Ravens’ Haloti Ngata ($15,000) — but no flag was thrown in either case and there have been no roughing-the-passer penalties all season. Sanchez has drawn two personal-foul...

Why Watch: To see which team will fall further faster. Of the two teams, Buffalo is up against it. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick got the big contract just before his performance slipped. His November passer rating is 47.7. Then calamity struck when the Bills put ace running back...
The obituary to the Jets’ season can wait another week — or more — after Mark Sanchez threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes to keep their playoff hopes alive in a 28-24 victory.
Jim Leonhard left no secret that he wasn’t happy with the boobirds directed at Mark Sanchez before the Jets’ 28-24 win to the Bills on Sunday. The veteran safety, one of the most well-respected and fan-friendly players on Rex Ryan’s team, admitted on Tuesday that he took exception to the fans’ ...
Mark Sanchez threw four TD passes as the Jets rallied past the Bills 28-24. The QB was erratic, however, and Chris Burke wonders how long Sanchez can keep his vocal critics at bay.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson celebrated a touchdown reception and mocked opponents Plaxico Burress and Santonio Holmes in the process.
After reeling in a five-yard score in the second quarter during Sunday's game, Johnson pretended to shoot himself in the leg as he began his touchdown celebration.
Johnson then extended his arms and mocked Holmes' touchdown...
I think everyone knows by now that I'm not a big Rex Ryan fan. But that was a nice and also necessary comeback by his Jets on Sunday. They rallied to beat Buffalo and Mark Sanchez passed for four touchdowns. It was a career high for Sanchez, but it wasn't a convincing win for the Jets, that's for sure.
The Bills have been stumbling and are pretty short on personnel....

Stay classy, Stevie Johnson. The young wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills mocked Plaxico Burress after scoring a touchdown against the New York Jets by pretending to shoot himself in the thigh.
