NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Jets’ quarterback controversy has gone from simmering to bizarre to — biblical?

Before New York’s 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans in Week 5, backup quarterback Tim Tebow tweeted, “Looking forward to giving God all the glory in tonight’s 666th Monday Night Football game. Romans 8:37-39.”

With the No. 6 jersey on his back, starter Mark Sanchez connected on 14 of 31 passes, had one touchdown and two interceptions.

File this under “You can’t make it up”: Sanchez’s line means — drumroll please — on the season, he now has a 66.6 passer rating, 6.6 yards per attempt, six touchdowns, six interceptions, and his longest completion of the season was good for 66 yards.

The Bible references 666 as the number of the beast in Revelations 13:18.

WFAN co-hosts Craig Carton and Boomer Esiason made light of the eerie stats on Wednesday morning.

“We now know why the New York Jets brought Tim Tebow in here,” Carton said. “We are gonna have an epic battle … good versus evil!”
