Capping off his five-turnover day, Sanchez mishandled the snap as the Jets were preparing for the game-winning drive, the ball was kicked by his own teammate and the Titans recovered.
The snap was low, I'll give him that. But at this point in the game that's a snap he absolutely has to field cleanly.
Drive over and season over. The Jets were officially eliminated from the playoffs with the loss.
Though it wasn't a butt-fumble, Twitter still lit up the moment the Jets lost. I think some variation of "LOL MNF" is the correct reaction here.
