Q)What are your thoughts on the last three weeks?
Sanchez: I’ve just been proud of the last three weeks of the way we really worked through three tough losses at one point in the season. So, this is right where we want to be and there’s no better team that we’d want to play than a division rival and a divisional opponent, for (a game that) looks to set us up real nice in the division if we win.
Q)What does the team need to do different from the first Jets-Pats game?
Sanchez: For us, it’s just (about) coming out maybe a little faster; take care of the football.
Q)Where is the offense at right now?
Sanchez: We’re starting to come into our own as an offense. I think when we take care of the ball and are pretty efficient on third down we really do well. So, that’s kind of been the name of these last three weeks of winning, is taking care of the football and playing well on third down.
From that lockout, we’ve all started to settle in and get used to it. The offense is kind of getting into a groove here. We just want to keep it going and keep taking care of the football, really.
Q)The Pats have the worst ranked pass defense. Might you guys open it up?
Sanchez: I don’t care if we throw it 100 times or run it 100 times, as long as we’re winning. We’re in the winning business and we’ve got to win, so whatever it takes.
Q)What are your thoughts on playing in prime time in such a big game?
Sanchez: They’re all important. They’re all big. We wouldn’t be in this position if we didn’t win against Buffalo, so the most important thing is to not change. The field is the same size, the ball is the same shape.
