Road kings: Staubach, Dawson ... Sanchez?

1/17/2011

Mark Sanchez turned 24 in November.

Already, he has tied the NFL record for postseason road victories.

Sanchez raised his road playoff record to 4-1 with the New York Jets' colossal victory over the New England Patriots in Gillette Stadium.

He's tied with Len Dawson, Roger Staubach, Jake Delhomme and Joe Flacco for the most all-time. Super Bowls aren't factored into the stat because they're neutral-site games with no home team.

Sanchez has won as many road playoff games in his career as Brett Favre (three) and Dan Marino (one) combined.

Sanchez completed 16 of his 25 attempts for 194 yards and three touchdowns. He posted a 127.3 passer rating. He became only the second quarterback to throw for at least three touchdowns without an interception against the Patriots in the postseason. Delhomme did it for the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl XXXVIII.

Only one quarterback had that kind of performance against the Patriots in the regular season. That was Sanchez, too, in a Week 2 victory at the Meadowlands.
