FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Slow starts are a thing of the past for the suddenly clicking New York Jets.
Mark Sanchez and the once-struggling offense have become an efficient group that has gotten on the scoreboard early during the Jets' three-game winning streak. And, they've done it against some pretty good defenses. Here comes another one this Sunday in the Philadelphia Eagles, who are coming off a nine-sack performance against Miami.
Sanchez says the Eagles (5-8) have "some of the best players I've seen all year on tape," so the Jets (8-5) know better than to take them lightly.
But New York is in a groove offensively, with its 13 touchdowns in the last three games tied with Green Bay, New Orleans and New England for the most in the NFL during that span.
