Reports: Sainz picks Jets to win it all

The Mexican television reporter who accused New York Jets players of harassing her last summer thinks the team will go on to win Super Bowl XLV, according to reports Wednesday.

"They are like a star in the movies," Ines Sainz said in an interview with Steppin' Out magazine. "They win games you truly believe they are going to lose."

Sainz, who works for TV Azteca, said she thinks quarterback Mark Sanchez can lead the Jets to a championship, despite his shaky performance in the Jets' Wild Card victory over the Colts.

The 32-year-old made headlines in Sept. when she said that Jets players whistled and made catcalls at her while she interviewed the Mexican-American Sanchez during practice.


The Jets travel to heavily-favored New England on Sunday, where they suffered a humiliating 45-3 drubbing in early December.
