2. The Sanchez-Holmes/Edwards Connection: Despite not getting the best protection, Mark Sanchez completed 22/38 passes for 315 yards and three touchdowns and an interception on Sunday. Today 212 of his passing yards went to Braylon Edwards and Santonio Holmes. On their first scoring drive that resulted in a touchdown, Sanchez targeted Edwards and Holmes on slants then eventually found Edwards open in the end zone. With Jerricho Cotchery out, Sanchez frequently targeting these two for gains. A slant pattern touchdown to Holmes got the Jets on the board again in the middle of the third quarter. With less than a minute left in the game, Sanchez then did the unthinkable and led the Jets down the field from the Jets own 28 yard line for a game winning touchdown drive. The drive took just five plays to go the 72 yards and was capped off by a Holmes over the shoulder catch with 15 seconds left in the game.
Andre Johnson and Arian Foster Kept in Check: While Arian Foster had a solid first half, he was held relatively quiet much of the rest of the game, adding just 31 rushing yards in the final two quarters. Andre Johnson was invisible until late in the game as he finished with only four catches for 32 yards. No matter the player, the Jets seem capable of shutting down All-Pro receivers week after week (but in the fourth quarter on Sunday, they couldn't stop anyone). We'll see if Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens provide any bulletin board material in the coming days or if the mouthy duo will quietly stay put and respect the Jets defense.
