1 Leonhard’s pick — Darrelle Revis had the game’s prettiest pick on the Jets’ 17-yard line, but Jim Leonhard’s interception the Chargers’ next possession put the Jets in prime position to take control of the game.
2 Sanchez’s touchdown — Mark Sanchez was far from dazzling, but once again he did just enough. Following Leonhard’s pick, a scrambling Sanchez lobbed a 2-yard touchdown to Dustin Keller on third-and-goal to give the Jets their first lead, 10-7, early in the fourth. If they just kick a field goal there, the Chargers chalk that possession up as a win. Instead, Gang Green shifted momentum.
3 The onsides kick — After a Philip Rivers 1-yard plunge pulled the Chargers within three with 2:14 left, Norv Turner elected for the onsides kick that Kerry Rhodes recovered. Had San?Diego booted it away, there’s a good chance Rex Ryan would have punted it back to them instead of going for it on fourth down. That’s a call that just might cost Turner his job.
