Jets to Start McElroy at QB, Sanchez Benched

Sanchez threw four interceptions Monday night and couldn’t handle a low snap with the game on the line as the Jets were eliminated from playoff contention with a 14-10 loss at Tennessee.

Ryan said after the game that he wasn’t ready to decide who would start against the Chargers, but chose McElroy over Sanchez and backup Tim Tebow after talking with his staff and others in the organization Tuesday.

McElroy, a seventh-round pick last year out of Alabama, helped lead the Jets to a 7-6 win over Arizona on Dec. 2 when Ryan pulled Sanchez from that game late in the third quarter.
