"I knew we were really close in the preseason," Sanchez told reporters after the game. "Did I know it was 48 points? No, I didn't necessarily know that, but that's just a great day of execution."
Kerley, who also returned a punt 68 yards for a touchdown, opened the scoring with a 12-yard touchdown pass on a pretty fade throw by Sanchez. Hill, who seemed to drop every ball thrown his way during the preseason, finished with five catches for 89 yards and two scores.
But this day belonged to Sanchez, who finished 19-of-27 passing for 266 yards and three touchdowns. After an offseason of predictions that the fourth-year QB would be booed as fans called for Tim Tebow, we actually witnessed the opposite at the Meadowlands.
The Wildcat was a dud, and Sanchez powered an offense that silenced its critics ... at least for a week.
