EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Jets head coach Rex Ryan was asked in his postgame press conference Sunday about the effort of Mark Sanchez in the Jets 28-14 win. The oft-maligned second-year quarterback completed 21-of-30 passes for 220 yards and three touchdown passes to lead the Jets to the comeback victory.
"I thought he played great," said Ryan of Sanchez, who struggled mightily in a Week 1 loss to the Ravens. "There's no question that you're going to get some criticism here [New York], but we've never stopped believing in him. We know this is a guy that's going to do it for us. We've been saying it all training camp and tonight we saw it. He was on the money with every throw."
Sanchez completed 10-of-21 passes for just 74 yards in the opener vs. the Ravens, but Ryan -- who admitted earlier in the week that he was "concerned" with the offense -- said he never worried that his QB was...
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Asked if Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was the best quarterback on the field during New York's 28-14 win over the Patriots Sunday, Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis said, "Oh yeah. No doubt ... Sanchez looked good and he looked comfortable."
Sanchez finished completing 21 of 30 passes for 220 yards, tossing three touchdowns without throwing a single interception. He finished with a quarterback rating of 124.3. Brady, meanwhile, went 20-for-36, accumulating 248 yards. He threw two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions while totaling a 72.5 QB rating.
"[Jets head coach] Rex [Ryan] is smart. We play aggressive defense. That's what we do," said Revis, who was forced out of the game after the first half with a sore left hamstring. "We wanted to be aggressive. Actually, we wanted to get to Brady a lot and make him uncomfortable. I think that's what we tried to do."
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Tom Brady met with the media following the Patriots 28-14 loss to the Jets on Sunday. Brady struggled in the second half, completing just 7-of-16 pass attempts with a pair of interceptions and a lost fumble as the Jets posted 18 unanswered points in the final 24 minutes. The Patriots QB was asked his thoughts on his club's performance Sunday.
"We couldn't run it, we couldn't throw it, we just sucked." said Brady, who finished with 248 yards passing in the loss. "We didn't make the plays, we couldn't connect on anything. It was very frustrating, I think, for us to sit in the locker room after the game knowing we can play a lot better than we played in the second half, and we are going to need to. That was a very frustrating performance by all of us."
Brady was clearly angry with the effort by the Patriots, but did not agree with the notion that this might lead to...
Randy Moss may have removed himself from Revis Island with a spectacular one-handed touchdown catch against the corner, but it wasn't enough as the Pats lost to the Jets, 28-14. "Man, I don’t really know," Moss said after the game. "Some things you really can’t answer. It just seemed like it fell apart in the second half. When you put a lot of hard work in like we did throughout the week – it was really a hard-working week – it’s just disappointing to come out and play a good first half and come out and lay down the second half. It’s very disappointing from my perspective. I’ve just got to do a little bit better. The team relied on me to throw me the ball. I just didn’t really make the plays in the second half. It’s something that really hurts. The good thing about it is that we go to work tomorrow."
"It's how you handle adversity," Moss added. "The Jets...
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Jets scored 18 unanswered, second-half points, with Mark Sanchez connecting on a third quarter, two-yard touchdown pass to Jerricho Cotchery, and a one-yard TD throw to Dustin Keller in the fourth quarter to pull away with a 28-14 win over the Patriots, Sunday afternoon at the new Meadowlands Stadium.
The Patriots had jumped out to a 14-10 lead heading into halftime thanks to a six-yard touchdown pass from Brady to Wes Welker in the first quarter, and Randy Moss' 34-yard touchdown grab -- over cornerback Darrelle Revis (who left with a hamstring injury after the play) -- with 47 seconds left in the first half.
In the second half, however, Brady struggled, throwing a pair of interceptions, while also fumbling after being sacked by Jason Taylor late in the fourth quarter. The Pats' QB finished going 20-for-36 for 248 yards. Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez rebounded from a poor game in his team's...
