East Rutherford, NJ - Mark Sanchez led the New York Jets on five scoring drives in three quarters in an up-and down performance in a 37-13 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday night.

Sanchez, trying to fend off rookie Geno Smith to keep his starting job, threw a touchdown pass to Jeff Cumberland, but also was intercepted at the goal line and cost New York (1-1) an early scoring opportunity. Smith sat out with a sprained ankle suffered in the preseason opener at Detroit.

Blaine Gabbert led the Jaguars (0-2) on two scoring drives and might have secured the starting job before leaving with a sprained thumb. Gabbert, competing with Chad Henne, was 13 of 16 for 165 yards and a touchdown before the injury.

Jacksonville's Maurice Jones-Drew ran for 9 yards and had a 20-yard catch in his first game action since suffering a foot injury last October.
