This morning, we continue our countdown of the top 5 games/moments in the young career of Mark Sanchez.
Now we reveal number 3:
2009 Wild Card Game-Jets vs Bengals
Think back to that 2009 season, specifically the end of it. Remember the circumstances? The Jets lost a tough one to the Atlanta Falcons, and Rex told the media after the game that we were out of the playoffs. Everything broke right, including Peyton Manning sitting out the second half of the week 16 game against the Jets. The Jets won the last 2, and broke into the playoffs as the sixth seed.
Mark didn’t play well over those last two weeks, not throwing for a single TD over the final games, and only throwing for 63 yards in week 17, despite the Jets decisive 37-0 win.
So the Jets were rematched against the Bengals on this wild card weekend, turn the page and we’ll talk more about that game, and why it made the list.
