Mark Sanchez is up for one of the NFL’s weekly awards this week, along with one of the quarterbacks he and the Jets lost to this season ad one of the QBs he and the Jets defeated.
Sanchez orchestrated the 12-play, 82-yard drive that concluded with the QB’s rollout TD strike to WR Santonio Holmes in the end zone with 1:01 to play, giving the Jets the 28-24 lead they didn’t lose in their home victory over the Bills.
On the march, Sanchez completed six of eight passes for 61 yards, with four of the completions going for first downs and two — 12 yards to Patrick Turner to the Bills 35, then 18 yards to Plaxico Burress with his leaping one-hand grab to the Bills 18 — converting third downs.
The award is the Never Say Never Moment of the Week and fans can click here to vote for their favorite “moment” from now through Friday at noon ET.
Sanchez’s competitors for this award are Tim Tebow, who rallied the Broncos past the Chargers in overtime on Sunday, and Tony Romo, who guided the Cowboys to Dan Bailey’s game-winning field goal over the Dolphins as time expired on Thanksgiving Day.
