Even in Win, Jets Lose One

Sanchez leaves in third quarter

View Comments (


    Mark Sanchez apparently forgot everything Joe Girardi taught him as he barrels headfirst into defenders and picks up a first down in the third quarter. After the next play he took himself out of the game with an injured right knee.

    Mark Sanchez threw a go-ahead touchdown pass to Braylon Edwards before hurting his right knee, and the New York Jets' stingy defense finished the job in a 19-13 win over the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night.

    Sanchez went 7 of 15 for 104 yards and a 13-yard scoring strike to Edwards that put the Jets up 16-10 late in the first half.

    But the rookie first-round pick was knocked out of the game when he injured his right knee diving headfirst on an 8-yard run early in the third quarter.

    Jay Feely hit four field goals, including a 49-yarder, as the Jets (6-6) won their second straight game.

    The Bills (4-8) struggled in the second half, when their offense was limited to 36 yards and four first downs.
