1. Including playoffs, Sanchez has 5 touchdowns and 0 interceptions in his last two road games against the Patriots after throwing 1 TD and 7 interceptions in his first two road games against the Patriots.

2. Tim Tebow has played a total of 45 offensive snaps this season. The most consecutive snaps Tebow has played in a game is three in Week 2, his only three offensive snaps in the game. Tebow has played back-to-back snaps four other times this season (twice in Week 3 and Week 5).

The Patriots have allowed a league-high 16 completions on such throws this season and the second-most touchdowns (5).
