Sanchez To Start Sunday

After missing last week’s win against Tampa Bay with a knee sprain, Mark Sanchez will be back in the starting lineup Sunday when the Jets take on the Falcons. This from SB Nation’s Gang Green Nation:

Mark Sanchez has been named the official starter for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. Not a big surprise by any means, but Rex has removed all doubt as to who would be behind center.

He will, however, be wearing two knee braces which could present some mobility concerns. That being said, with the Jets facing another weak run defense, and 20 MPH winds and snow in the forecast, it’s likely that he will be handing the ball off 40-50 times and Schotty’s gameplan will be conservative as it was for Clemens.

The Jets currently sit in a three-way tie with Miami and Baltimore for the final playoff spot in the AFC, so Sunday’s contest with reeling Falcons is vital to their postseason chances.
