New York Jets Report Card: Grading Each Unit vs. the San Diego Chargers

In a game dominated through much of the first half by visiting San Diego, the Jets left no question about whether they had the collective sand to overcome adversity in what was a critical home win for New York.

It was a tale of two halves as Mark Sanchez worked his way through a rocky start, connecting with Plaxico Burress for three touchdowns, including one for the go ahead score late in the third quarter.

Through the first two quarters of play the Jets were unable to capitalize on the opportunities created by a sloppy performance from San Diego who, somewhat uncharacteristically, committed 13 penalties for 95 yards. The momentum shifted in the second half, though, as New York was able to rattle Rivers into two second half interceptions, allowing Sanchez and Burress to light it up for the win.

While, at least at first, it seemed as though the Chargers could not give the win away if they tried, in the end the Jets found a way to take advantage of San Diego's mistakes, ultimately snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.
