After beating a lackluster Jacksonville Jaguars team, New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez said the team is "catching fire" and may "run the table."

The Jets have now won back-to-back contests, the first of which was a 7-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

New York's remaining three games are against the San Diego Chargers, Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills. Not the most difficult of opponents, but running the table is a tall order.

Do fans and the media agree with Sanchez's viewpoint? Let's check out some reaction from Twitter to find out:

Mark Sanchez said team is catching fire. If fire means Beating terrible teams by little points, then yes, the Jets are on fire

Mark Sanchez says Jets are catching fire. You beat Arizona and Jaguars, you realize that, right? #LOL

The Twitter-verse seems pretty united in the viewpoint that Sanchez was off-base with his "catching fire" remark. Still, at 6-7, New York is far from out of the AFC playoff race.
