Did Holmes run wrong route? Dan Leberfeld

On a third-and-two in the Jets-Bills game, Mark Sanchez threw a quick out to Santonio Holmes, but the receiver kept running up field.

On Wednesday, Rex Ryan cleared up who made the mistake on this play.

“That third-and-two, the ball should’ve been a quick-out,” Ryan said. “They ended up reading it differently. Mark (Sanchez) threw the ball as a quick-out. That was something that could’ve been a big third-down conversion, but it’s just things like that that we’re trying like crazy to clean up right now.”
