ST. LOUIS — The Jets saved their season yesterday. They saved it with take-away defense against old friend Brian Schottenheimer and overmatched quarterback Sam Bradford, they saved it with perfect red zone play calls that resulted in a pair of Bilal Powell touchdown runs, they saved it because Rex Ryan kept his team together during a desperate, turmoil-ravaged time.
But mostly, Mark Sanchez saved it.
He kept hope alive, at least until Bill Belichick and Tom Brady show up on Thanksgiving night at MetLife Stadium with their carving knives.
“Absolutely there’s hope,” Tim Tebow said after Jets 27, Rams 13.
