Mark Sanchez came into this game after two poor performances, as we outlined on the previous page. Mark’s performance certainly would not have made anyone think he was ready to perform in the post season.

And everyone would have been wrong.

The Jets were down 7-0 after a late first quarter TD from Carson Palmer to old friend Laveranues Coles. How did Mark respond? He led his offense to 21 unanswered points to put the game away.

Shonn Greene opened the scoring for the Jets with a 39 yard TD run. Midway through the quarter, the Jets were set up near midfield by a Darrelle Revis interception. Four plays later, Sanchez hit Dustin Keller with a 45 yard TD pass that broke the 7-7 tie and the Jets went on to win 24-14.

Mark Sanchez’s stats on the day? 12-15 for 182 yards and 1 TD, a razor sharp 139.4 passer rating. How’s about that for a rookie performance in the playoffs?
