Exclusive: Jets Quarterback Mark Sanchez’s clipboard

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was lifted during Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals in what might have been the worst game in NFL history, or at least this week. While Greg McElroy led the Jets to a win over the Cardinals, Mark Sanchez was caught furiously scribbling on his clipboard. What could he have possibly been writing? We got a sneak peak with our spy camera.

Kubiak: Yates must beat out Leinart for Texans’ backup QB job

Value of Texans WR Johnson could take another hit

The value of Texans WR Andre Johnson has taken a hit this week because of matchup against Jets CB Darrelle Revis.
