Mark Sanchez

The Jets announced Wednesday that maligned quarterback Mark Sanchez will start Sunday’s game [2] at Jacksonville. Coach Rex Ryan took two days to make his decision, following Sunday’s 7-6 victory over the Cardinals in which Sanchez was pulled in the third quarter for third-stringer Greg McElroy after throwing three interceptions in his first 10 passes. McElroy went on to lead the team on its only scoring drive, throwing a 1-yard touchdown pass. Backup Tim Tebow is recovering from broken ribs.

The New York Daily News [3] reported that owner Woody Johnson preferred McElroy for Sunday’s game but general manager Mike Tannenbaum and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano wanted Sanchez.
