Just like we did last week, we're gonna look here at how the Patriots and Jets came after each other's quarterbacks.

As you'll see, New England was far more varied and aggressive, on average, against the rookie Mark Sanchez, than they were against Peyton Manning. Don't grouse about that -- Manning was 7-for-8 for 99 yards last week when the Patriots brought even one extra rusher. Here are the numbers ...

Second half: 2-2, 17 yards
Total: 6-9, 94 yards

First half: 9-12, 103 yards, TD, Sack
