Mark Sanchez has built his own reputation for comebacks — but he couldn’t engineer another Thursday night.
Here’s a guarantee that I feel pretty good about: The Jets will not be AFC East Champions. There will be no changing of the guard. For the Jets to make the playoffs, they will have to go through their familiar route of getting a wild card spot.
