How good has Mark Sanchez been? Let's look at his 3rd down numbers.
On third downs, Sanchez is 17-23 for 228 yards and a touchdown. That's good for a 119.5 quarterback rating, fourth best in the NFL in that situation. However, on 3rd and 7 or longer, he's been even better. He's 13 for 14 for 149 yards and a touchdown on 3rd and long! That's unbelievable.
*With Donald Strickland suffering a quadriceps injury, the Jets re-signed CB Marquice Cole from their practice squad and released TE Matthew Mulligan. Mulligan was inactive for the first two games, so the Jets chose to bolster their cornerback depth rather than keep the extra tight end.
