“It’s embarrassing,” Sanchez said (via the New York Daily News). “You screw up the play [and] I’m trying to do the right thing. It’s not like I’m trying to force something. I start to slide and I slide in the worst spot I possibly could: right into Brandon Moore.”
Sanchez told reporters that he hasn’t been razzed terribly by his teammates about the play. After all, there was plenty of shared shame after a demoralizing 49-19 loss in which the Patriots scored 35 points in the second quarter, with three touchdowns coming in a 52-second span.
It was the cheek-to-cheek action with Moore, though, that perfectly captured the Jets’ day.
“I guess [I was] more stunned than anything,” Sanchez said. “Like a car accident. I was like, ‘woah – what just happened?’ And then the ball’s gone. It was weird, it [stunk].”
