You would be the first one complaining if they took too many chances with a lead and threw a costly INT that allowed the Rams back in the game. The Jets were winning the game in the 4th quarter - it was in their best interest to run the ball and milk the clock so they could win. Not pad the stats of their QB so he could have an acceptable game for a starting NFL QB.
My point is that you can't merely look at numbers from a game and say that it is not acceptable without considering the context of the game - anyone who makes this argument is a fantasy football idiot.
+1, I was calling for Marks head the past couple of weeks but he looked comfortable, confident, and in control on Sunday. He had a good game against the Pats in Foxboro, aside from the fumble obviously. I think we have a really good chance of winning this one especially with Gronk out.
