After an ineffective Mark Sanchez was benched, third string backup and former Alabama star Greg McElroy led Gang Green to a 7-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals in a positively ugly game in the Meadowlands.
McElroy played his first NFL game and threw his first ever big league TD pass to erase a 3-0 Cardinal lead.
The JETS defense was spot on but Sanchez three three picks in the first half and was unable to score following his humiliating 49-19 loss to the Pats on Thanksgiving.
The JETS move to 5-7 and face Jacksonville next week.
The question is, will coach Rex Ryan use McElroy to start against the Jags ?
McElroy had led the Crimson Tide to an undefeated season in 2009 and SEC and BCS championships.
