While it's still early in the second quarter and the score is tied at seven, one disturbing/uplifting trend is emerging. New York Jets Quarterback Mark Sanchez has been on the Mark. Victimized by three drops so far, Sanchez seems to be up to the challenge of having to make plays in a playoff game. Braylon Edwards dropped a sure fire touchdown pass and Dustin Keller a sure fire third down pass that would have been good for a first down. These are huge momentum changing plays and let's just hope the Jets can correct the trend the rest of the game.
