Sanchez, Defense Lead Jets Past Bills 48-28 [VIDEO]
Mark Sanchez threw three touchdown passes, including two to rookie Stephen Hill, and the Jets eased concerns about their offense with a 48-28 rout of the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
The Jets sprinkled in their wildcat package with Tim Tebow, who was mostly quiet but recovered a late onside kick by Buffalo, and Jeremy Kerley had a touchdown catch and a punt return for a score. Antonio Cromartie also took one of the Jets’ three interceptions of Ryan Fitzpatrick to the end zone.
It was the most points the Jets have scored in a season opener. That’s from a team that had many wondering what to expect after the first-team offense failed to score a touchdown in the first three games of the preseason.
Meanwhile, Mario Williams, the Bills’ big free agent signing, was quiet as the Jets’ offensive line protected Sanchez all game.
