Mark Sanchez led the New York Jets on an impressive touchdown drive, while Tim Tebow mostly sputtered during the team's intrasquad scrimmage.

Sanchez and Tebow each led four drives Saturday night, with the starting quarterback going 11 of 16 for 82 yards and a scoring toss to Bilal Powell. The touchdown capped an impressive 60-yard drive.

Tebow — the clear crowd favorite judging by the ''Tee-bow! Tee-bow!'' chants throughout — was 0 of 3, including a dropped long pass by Eron Riley. Tebow ran three times for 14 yards, and had two fumbled exchanges with center Caleb Schlauderaff. Tebow also lined up as the punt protector and completed a pass to safety Eric Smith on a fake punt.

Fourth-string quarterback Matt Simms threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to Raymond Webber.
