On the surface of things this was another poor display by Mark Sanchez, with the base stats painting a clear picture of his continuing struggles. A passer rating of only 54.5 and a completion percentage below 50% for the fourth straight week after all that promise he showed in Week 1. Well, base stats don’t paint the full picture and Sanchez is very poorly represented by if you dig no further than this. For starters, six of his passes weren’t “aimed”, with four of them being batted and on two occasions he was hit by a Texan defender rendering the pass incomplete. Add to that a tipped pass turned into an interception (by J.J. Watt), that flipped a scoring drive for the Jets, into a scoring drive for the Texans. Don’t forget a trio of dropped passes and you end up with a picture of Sanchez let down by those around him and simply coming up against an excellent defensive front. One of those three drops led to the Texans’ second interception as Sanchez was again faultless for a turnover. He did not light this game up but he did show that if the players around him did their jobs they can hang with any team in the league. The storyline of another poor game by Sanchez will ratchet up the pressure on him, but for this week at least such talk is unfair and unreasonable.
