Jets rise above it all

Rex’s team shows maturity in win over rival Dolphins.

1 The Sanchez factor

Mark Sanchez didn't have a single three-touchdown game in his first 19 contests. Now, he has back-to-back three-touchdown games.

“It’s kind of scary to see where this offense can go,” said tight end Dustin Keller, who has 213 receiving yards the last two weeks.

2 Staying focused

The Jets claimed the arrest of wide receiver Braylon Edwards last Tuesday wouldn't distract the team from the task at hand. They were right.

“You’re going to have distractions each and every week, even if they're not in the paper or on TV,” Bryan Thomas said.

3 Bend but don’t break

Last season’s No. 1 defense gave up 363 yards passing to Chad Henne in the dramatic 31-23 win.

“We didn’t execute the way we wanted to,” said safety Eric Smith.

Maybe not the whole game, but they did on the final four plays to seal the win.
