Sanchez's streak comes to an end

Mark Sanchez, whose interceptions earlier this season drew sharp criticism, finally threw a pick on his 34th pass of the postseason.

According to Elias Sports Bureau, only one other rookie in NFL postseason history has recorded a streak of 30 or more passes without an interception. Last season, Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco threw 49 consecutive passes without an interception.

Sanchez struggled on third down during the regular season, completing just 51.1 percent of his third-down attempts for a passer rating of 58.0. That number improved dramatically in Sunday's victory over the Chargers, as illustrated by the chart below.
