Saying that it’s been a rough season for the New York Jets would be understating things just a bit. We’re not even to Week 12 yet and there is already a borderline mutiny in the Big Apple, and the Tim Tebow talk has hit an all-time high, as has the hatred for the man. But in all of the dissent, one thing was forgotten, how to score a touchdown.
Well, turns out the Jets remembered that you can actually do that in football and did. Alert the press, the Jets have scored an actual offensive touchdown — and Mark Sanchez was the guy who threw it.
After the Jets forced a Sam Bradford fumble and Bart Scott jumped on it, the Jets offense picked things up as Mark Sanchez hit Chaz Schilens for a 25-yard touchdown that made the score 10-7 in the second quarter. Sanchez hasn’t actually been that bad against the Rams, as he hasn’t thrown a interception as of halftime.
The New York defense is doing all it can to keep the Jets in the game, as they’ve forced two turnovers already, but only one resulted in points.
As for your Tim Tebow update, he came in on a fake punt that was botched in the most horrible was humanly possible. So for those keeping score it’s Mark Sanchez 118, Tim Tebow -1, thus proving that you can indeed score without Tim Tebow’s blessing.
