First quarter: Quick analysis

The Jets lead the Texans after the first quarter, 3-0. Thoughts:

Mark Sanchez (6-for-7, 43 yards) was sharp, operating a dink-and-dunk passing attack. His only incompletion was a blatant drop by TE Matt Mulligan. Playing with two backups on the line, the Jets didn't put Sanchez in any dangerous situations, although he was sacked twice.

C Rob Turner, who started for the injured Nick Mangold, was carted off the field with an apparent ankle injury. He was replaced by third-string C Robby Felix, who may not even make the team. It was a scary looking line, with Vlad Ducasse struggling at right guard. In fact, Ducasse allowed the pressure that led to a sack by rookie DE J.J. Watt. Luckily for the Jets, Mangold and RG Brandon Moore are expected back this week.

• New WR Derrick Mason was impressive in his brief debut. On the Jets' second possession, he caught passes on back-to-back plays for a total of 17 yards.

• The Jets received a scare on their first defensive play, when LB Bart Scott limped off with an apparent ankle/leg injury. A player rolled up his leg and it looked like a potentially serious injury on the replay, but he was back for the second series. Oh, by the way, his replacement, Josh Mauga, recorded a sack.
