Mark Sanchez impressed everyone with his performance on Sunday, throwing for 266 yards and 3 TDs, vs only 1 INT. Other than the pick, Mark was sharp, making smart decisions, accurate passes with some serious zip. The Jets offense was terrific. But Mark and the team are long past indulging in their performance from Sunday, and ready for a tough go-round in Pittsburgh on Sunday. Here is what Mark had to say about the Steelers, specifically, their defense:

It’s a sound group, it’s a veteran group, like you said. These guys can pattern read, they read the quarterbacks eyes, they are a fast-flow defense and an aggressive front seven and great on backend as well. It’s going to be one of our toughest challenges all year. We’re going to have to hold up well up front. It’s on me to make quick decisions, deliver the ball accurately to the right guy and we have to get open with the wide outs and play well in the run game. It’s going to take a complete effort and our best effort.

Here is Mark’s take on how to beat the Steelers:

Taking care of the football, being accurate, (having) a great plan, which I think we’re still making right now. It took a great week of practice both times. We have to come out and play well, really play sharp. (We) can’t allow any penalties on the road and (we have to) really handle the crowd noise.
