Now we reveal the number 2 game of Mark Sanchez’s career:

2010 Wild Card Game-Jets vs Indianapolis Colts

The Jets faced a daunting task in this one, going into a rematch of the 2009 AFC Championship game against the Colts. Although the Jets did lead the previous year’s game at halftime, going up against the great Peyton Manning is never an easy undertaking.

If you look back at this game, the Jets were losing at half time, and it took a last second comeback for the Jets to win this one at all. The Jets were being shut out until the third quarter, and Mark didn’t throw a TD pass on the game.

Sanchez actually had a mediocre showing that day, going 18-31 passing for 189 yards and 1 INT, a meer 62.4 passer rating.

Why does this make the list, especially at number 2? Turn the page and find out.
