I feel like we discuss this every week, but it's continually a problem. The New York Jets went nearly 30 minutes without scoring any points. During the time span, the Oakland Raiders scored 24 points and went from being down 17-7 to having a 31-17 lead.
The offense only picked it up once they were in hurry-up mode and the Raiders were playing more relaxed coverage on defense and for the third straight game, Mark Sanchez turned the ball over. He only threw one interception, but it was pivotal in this game as it came near the goal-line and the Raiders didn't commit any turnovers.
I don't want to pick on Sanchez too much though. He deserves more credit than he is getting. He has thrown for over 300 yards in two of the three games and is completing over 63 percent of his passes, which is an enormous improvement over his first two seasons. He has done this with barely any running game to speak of and a spotty offensive line.
He does have room for improvement, but this loss wasn't on his shoulders.
