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.
