Jets vs Cardinals 2012: After Rex Ryan Benches Mark Sanchez, Greg McElroy Leads New York to a Win

The New York Jets are back in the win column after defeating the Arizona Cardinals, 7-6, in Week 13 of the 2012 NFL season.

Mark Sanchez’s three thrown interceptions got him benched by Rex Ryan, and rather than going to Tim Tebow (who was deactivated), Ryan inserted former Alabama QB Greg McElroy. It wasn’t pretty, but McElroy protected the ball and led the Jets on two FG drives that proved to be the difference.
