NFL Scores Week 12, Bills Vs. Jets: Mark Sanchez Leads New York To Win

Mark Sanchez is alive and well. Or at least he's alive. The Jets quarterback was far from perfect on Sunday, but did throw for four touchdowns, accounting for all of the Jets scores in a 28-24 win against the Bills in a pivotal AFC East Week 12 game.

Sanchez finished the game 17-of-35 on his pass attempts for 180 yards. He spread the ball around to six receivers and Santonio Holmes, Plaxico Burress and Dustin Keller each caught at least one touchdown pass.

Stevie Johnson was the big story for the Bills. Buffalo's wide receiver went after Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis for eight catches, 75 yards and a touchdown. But it was his TD celebration that sent shockwaves around the Internet after Johnson mocked Plaxico Burress, who accidentally shot himself in the leg three years ago.

The win improves the Jets to 6-5, keeping their postseason hopes alive. The Bills fall below .500 at 5-6.

VIDEO: Stevie Johnson Drop Karma After TD Celebration?

Stevie Johnson made a lot of noise on Sunday against the Jets. But after the Bills wide receiver put up numbers against Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis and drew headline for his controversial TD celebration, his loudest moment could be a simple dropped pass.

With the Bills trailing 28-24 and less than a minute left, Johnson came free across the middle of the field, but couldn't haul in a pass from Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick that could have given the Bills the lead (or at least put them close in the red zone).

Here is video of the missed opportunity:


The Bills went on to lose to the Jets, 28-24.

Of course, this is not the first time Johnson's hands -- or perhaps a higher power -- have forsaken him. The Bills wide receiver became famous last season when he missed a TD catch, then blamed God for his dropped pass on Twitter. After that drop, Johnson tweeted, "I PRAISE YOU 24/7!!!!!! AND THIS HOW YOU DO ME!!!!! YOU EXPECT ME TO LEARN FROM THIS? HOW?!!! ILL NEVER FORGET THIS!! EVER!!! THX THO…" I wonder what he will learn from *this* drop.

VIDEO: Mark Sanchez Throws Game-Winning TD In Jets Win

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez had a tough week leading up to New York's NFL Week 12 matchup against the Bills. But there's no way around admitting that Sanchez was a critical component in the Jets win, throwing for four touchdowns and accounting for all the Jets points in a 28-24 win.

Sanchez orchestrated a successful drive late in the fourth that ended with the go-ahead score. Here's video of Sanchez finding Santonio Holmes in the back of the end zone for the game-winning touchdown.


Sanchez was not perfect on Sunday, throwing a bad pick in deep in the Jets territory that led to a Bills touchdown in the first half. But overall it was a good day for Sanchez, who amassed 180 yards and Holmes, Plaxico Burress and Dustin Keller (twice) for touchdowns.

This has to feel good for Sanchez. The Jets quarterback was the target of much talk (and snark) this week after head coach Rex Ryan gave backup Mark Burnell some first-team reps in practice.

Shawne Merriman Offers To Split Fine For Stevie Johnson TD Celebration

Bills linebacker Shawne Merriman took to Twitter to defend his teammate Stevie Johnson at halftime of the Bills vs. Jets game on Sunday. Johnson provided one of the must-see highlights with his TD celebration (click for video) mocking Jets wide receiver Plaxico Burress and Santonio Holmes.

The celebration mocked Burress, who accidentally shot himself in the leg at a New York nightclub three years ago. The actions could be considered in bad taste and it's possible that Johnson will be issued a fine from the league.

If that happens, Merriman says he'll be there for his teammate. He tweeted the following:

Never tweet during the game but what @StevieJohnson13 did was disrespectful & not needed & should never happen in the #NFL so ill pay half the fine HA!

People need a sense of humor other than us being behind right now that celebration was funny #GoBills

Merriman could receive a fine himself for tweeting during the game. Last season, the NFL fined Chad Ochocinco $25,000 for in-game tweeting. However, as the New York Daily News points out, Merriman is on the injured reserve, and might not be subject to the same rule.

Bills Vs. Jets Score: Brad Smith Crazy Deflection TD Catch

The Bills and Jets are locked up in a tight NFL Week 12 matchup with big implications in the AFC East and postseason race. With the season on the line, Mark Sanchez and Ryan Fitzpatrick have come to play. And while the Jets QB has been bad at times, each quarterback has thrown for three touchdowns in the first three quarters.

Fitzpatrick has been strong throughout. But in the third quarter, he got some help from wide receiver (and former Jet) Brad Smith, who deflected a would-be interception and turned it into a 36-yard touchdown pass.

Video of that play is here, and it's just kind of ridiculous:


After some rough patches, including a bad interception that led to a Bills TD, Sanchez has found a bit of rhythm with help from his tight end Dustin Keller, who has four catches and two touchdowns.

Here's video of the second touchdown pass to Keller:

LaDanian Tomlinson Unlikely To Play With Left Knee Injury

New York Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson missed all of this week's practices and is listed as "Questionable" for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Tomlinson has not practiced in nearly two weeks since suffering a sprained MCL in his left knee. The 32-year-old has reportedly suffered setbacks in his recovery from a knee injury, making it unlikely that he'll play on Sunday.

"He'd do it," Ryan told The Star-Ledger of Tomlinson's status for Sunday. " 'Oh yeah, I'll go,' but what are we going to get? What's going to happen to him if we play him? That's the balancing act there. We absolutely have to win, but we have to win the rest of them, too. That's where I'm at right now. If I was a betting man — like right now, if we had to play tomorrow, I don't think he plays."

Without Tomlinson, and an injured Shonn Greene, running back Joe McKnight had 16 carries for 59 yards in a Week 11 loss to the Denver Broncos.
