This afternoon, we start a 5 part series, looking back at the career to date of Mark Sanchez. Specifically, we count down the top 5 games or moments in Mark Sanchez’s career so far. It might be specific to an individual throw, or it might be a game that had a major impact for the Jets. Here we go with #5:

Week 2 2009-The Jets Beat the Patriots, 16-9

This was obviously early in Mark’s career. Specifically, the first time the Jets played the New England Patriots in the Rex Ryan/Mark Sanchez era.

The Jets came into this game 1-0, and it was their chance to make a statement against their arch rivals. And a statement was exactly what the Jets made.

The Jets were in Tom Brady’s face all day, and a TD pass from Mark Sanchez to Dustin Keller was the difference in the game as the Jets won 16-9. For the game, Mark went 14-22 passing for 163 yards and the 1 TD. You may look at that stat line, notice that it is a bit pedestrian, not outstanding, and wonder why it made the list. I’ll tell you why on the next page.
