A "Next Level" statistical analysis, courtesy of ESPN Stats and Information:

MARK SANCHEZ: PASSING 10 YARDS OR FEWER

18-for-27 ... 66.7% ... 166 yards ... 1 TD ... 0 INT ... 95.6 rating

Analysis: In terms of accuracy, a significant improvement from last year.

SANCHEZ: PASSING 11 to 20 YARDS

6-for-13 ... 46.2% ... 117 yards ... 0 TD ... 1 INT ... 46.0 rating

Analysis: Interception by Sean Lee ruined his rating.

SANCHEZ: PASSING OUTSIDE THE POCKET

3-for-5 ... 60% ... 40 yards ... 1 TD ... 0 INT ... 125.0 rating

Analysis: Confirms that Sanchez is better when on the move.

SANCHEZ: PLAY-ACTION PASSING

5-for-6 ... 83.3% ... 98 yards ... 1 TD ... 0 INT ... 158.3 rating

Analysis: A perfect rating.

LaDAINIAN TOMLINSON: YARDS AFTER CATCH

6 catches ... 64 yards ... 10.7 average

Analysis: LT's YAC ranks sixth in the league. Wes Welker is first. No surprise.

PASS DEFENSE: 4 OR FEWER RUSHERS

16-for-24 ... 66.7% ... 260 yards ... 2 TDs ... 1 INT ... 113.2 passer rating

Analysis: Generated three sacks, but these numbers won't dispel notion that Jets' conventional rush is subpar.

PASS DEFENSE: 5+ RUSHERS

7-for-12 ... 58.3% ... 82 yards ... 0 TD ... 0 INT ... 79.2 rating

Analysis: Jets sent extra pressure only 33% of the time, way down from last season.

PASS DEFENSE: 1+ DB RUSH

5-for-12 ... 41.7% ... 74 yards ... 0 TD ... 1 INT ... 27.8 rating

Analysis: Jets love to send their DBs -- and it works.
