Mark Sanchez remains the starting quarterback for the New York Jets.

Coach Rex Ryan deliberated before the team made the announcement Wednesday that Sanchez received the nod over Greg McElroy, the third-string quarterback who rallied the Jets to a 7-6 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Sanchez was pulled in the third quarter after his third interception.

Ryan said Monday he would take a day or two to discuss his options with staff before naming the starter for Sunday's game at Jacksonville.

Tim Tebow could be demoted to No. 3 spot on the depth chart with a lingering rib injury.

Sanchez is guaranteed $8.25 million in 2013.
