The play designed by Tony Sparano in a dark room in Florham Park days earlier was brilliant.
Sparano put his quarterback in an ideal position this time. Sanchez’s play action to Bilal Powell got the Steelers’ four linemen flowing right to left, while he rolled free in the opposite direction.
The Jets formation had two receivers to Sanchez’s right: Stephen Hill in the slot and Holmes split wide just outside the numbers. Steelers safety Ryan Clark lined up in a stack formation behind linebacker LaMarr Woodley, who was covering Hill, in Pittsburgh’s Cover-2 look (two safeties splitting the field).
Sanchez’s misdirection prompted Clark to take a few steps forward to guard against a quarterback run, which left the middle of the field vacant. Holmes froze cornerback Ike Taylor with a textbook double move — faking an out route before running free on a post to the middle of the field. He was open for what should have been an easy touchdown to give the Jets a 14-6 lead and an avalanche of momentum.
But it didn’t happen. Worse yet, it set the tone for later in the game.
With his team trailing, 13-10, Rex Ryan didn’t have enough faith in Sanchez to get the Jets into field-goal range before halftime,
after they took over at their own 31-yard line with 57 seconds left and two timeouts.
By comparison, the Colts trusted rookie quarterback Andrew Luck in a similar situation against the Vikings on Sunday. Indianapolis took over at its 36-yard line with 1:11 left before halftime and two timeouts. Luck went 4-for-6 for 64 yards on the drive, including a 30-yard touchdown pass to extend the Colts’ lead.
