Jets | Mark Sanchez better without Santonio Holmes?

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez has been playing better since WR Santonio Holmes (foot) has been out of the lineup. Sanchez, no longer reliant on one receiver, is seeing the field better than before, according to teammates. He's finding the open receiver more often, arguably because he no longer feels a sense of obligation to throw it to Holmes - open or not. Sanchez is trusting the team's other receivers. His completion percentage has also improved from 49 percent to 53 percent over the last three games. Before losing Holmes, Sanchez directed 33 percent of his pass attempts to his No. 1 receiver. Since the injury, the pass distribution between the No. 1 and No. 2 receiver is almost even - 22 percent to 24 percent. Sanchez is also checking down to his backs at a much higher rate than before.
