The Jets have now won back-to-back contests, the first of which was a 7-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals.
Do fans and the media agree with Sanchez's viewpoint? Let's check out some reaction from Twitter to find out:

Mark Sanchez says Jets are catching fire. You beat Arizona and Jaguars, you realize that, right? #LOL— Ant Tones Ariola(@BigNicksFan77) December 9, 2012
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.
