Play-action remains Sanchez's friend


To further illustrate the effectiveness of the New York Jets' ground game, quarterback Mark Sanchez was superb again when using play-action.

In the wild-card game against the Bengals, Sanchez had a perfect passer rating when using play-action, finishing 5-of-6 for 107 yards and a touchdown. On Sunday at San Diego, he again found the end zone using play-action.

Sanchez's numbers have improved immensely in the playoffs when using play fakes compared to the regular season.
