QB Mark Sanchez has said that he is gaining confidence and comfort in pressure-filled end-of-game situations, as he has led the team to comeback victories in four consecutive games from Weeks 9-12. That is a positive sign for the team heading into the final stretch of the season, but a concern that they keep falling behind early. The Jets scored only six total points in the first quarter of those four wins and have scored 26 total points in the first 15 minutes of the game all year through Week 12, by far their lowest point total in any quarter. The good news is that the comeback margin hasn't been too steep in any of the contests because the team's defense has been tough while the offense struggles. Opponents have only 20 first-quarter points, with half of them coming in Week 10 by the Browns. It has been the fourth quarter that has been the problem for the "D," having allowed 69 points in the final period of play.
