After the first-team offense was blanked for the entirety of the preseason, Mark Sanchez & Co. set a franchise record for points scored in a season opener.
» Call it a statement game from Sanchez. After an ugly early interception, Sanchez (19-of-27, 266 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT) put on a clinic, including two scoring strikes to rookie wideout Stephen Hill.
» The debut of the Tebowcat was a bit of dud. Tim Tebow opened the game as a slot receiver, but worked mostly behind center on a handful plays. He didn't attempt a pass and finished with 11 yards on five carries. He did recover an onside kick.
