Inside the Jets' trends

What's with the Jets? An inside look at some trends, with help from ESPN Stats and Information:

MARK SANCHEZ: PASSES 10 YARDS OR LESS

62-for-102 ... 60.8% ... 578 yards ... 3 TDs ... 1 INT ... 82.1 passer rating

Analysis: His completion percentage ranks 29th in the league. Sanchez's numbers took a big hit Sunday night in Baltimore.

JETS OFFENSE: PERCENTAGE OF RUSHING PLAYS UNDE REX RYAN

2011 -- 34.4% ... 27th

2010 -- 47.9% ... 2nd

2009 - 57.7% ... 1st

Analysis: Detect a trend? It doesn't get more obvious than this. The shift to the pass isn't work, so Rex Ryan has declared his intentions to return to Ground & Pound.

JETS: MOST PENALIZED PLAYERS

Antonio Cromartie -- 5 for 51 yards

Wayne Hunter -- 3 for 30 yards

Matt Slauson -- 2 for 15 yards

Marquice Cole -- 1 for 15 yards

Plaxico Burress -- 1 for 15 yards

Analysis: Cromartie running away with this unwanted title.

OFFENSIVE SHORT-YARDAGE RUSHING

(3rd or 4th down with 2 or fewer to gain)

3 rushes ... 3 yards ... 1 first down ... 33% first-down percentage

Analysis: No team in the league has gaines less than a 33-percent conversion rate.

SANCHEZ: SCREEN PASSING

8-for-9 ... 88.9% ... 149 yards ... 0 TDs ... 0 INTs ... 92.1 passer rating

Analysis: Sanchez is one of the most efficient screen-throwing QBs in the league, yet the Jets don't call that many screens. Only eight passers have attempted fewer screens than Sanchez.
