QBR: Mark Sanchez over Tom Brady
By James Walker
The New York Jets are getting the best out of quarterback Mark Sanchez during their late playoff push. So much was the case that Sanchez had the best Total Quarterback Rating in the AFC East for Week 14.
Yes, Sanchez finally bested New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
Sanchez posted a season-high 80.8 QBR in New York's 37-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. He was 13-for-21 passing for 181 yards and four total touchdowns (two passing, two rushing).
Brady was second in the AFC East with a solid 77.2 QBR. He threw for 357 yards, three touchdowns and a late interception in the fourth quarter that drastically impacted his final rating. Still, New England won 34-27 over the Washington Redskins.
The rest of the division was pretty awful this week. Here are the latest QBR scores from this past Sunday in the AFC East:
- No. 1: Mark Sanchez, Jets, 80.8
- No. 2: Tom Brady, Patriots, 77.2
- No. 3: Ryan Fitzpatrick, Buffalo Bills, 11.9
- No. 4: Matt Moore, Miami Dolphins, 3.4
- No. 5: J.P. Losman, Dolphins, 2.9
