Jets-Ravens knowledge, part III

We're getting close to kickoff, Monday night at the New Meadowlands Stadium. Here's another "Next Level" nugget, provided by ESPN Stats and Information.

This time, we take a look at QB Mark Sanchez and his ability to stretch the field. This could be a factor because the Baltimore Ravens are banged up in the secondary (no S Ed Reed), making them an inviting target.

But a year ago, as a rookie, Sanchez struggled on his deep throws. Here's a breakdown of his passes -- less than 15 yards and 15-plus yards

Less than 15 -- 15+ yds
