Zack Sanchez labeled 'worst performer' of Week 6

It was a week to forget for Carolina Panthers rookie cornerback Zack Sanchez.

The former Oklahoma cornerback earned the not-so-great designation on Pro Football Focus' 'Worst Performances of the Week' for the league's Week 6.

Sanchez, making his first career start, came in at 2nd on the list behind only Packers' cornerback Ladarius Gunter.

While Gunter was finding several creative ways to get beat, Sanchez was leaning on an old staple – the double move. This has been his kryptonite for as long as we have graded tape on him, and he was toasted by it again in Carolina’s loss to the Saints, biting on the first move regularly and surrendering 183 yards, including 87 on a single reception.

Luckily for Sanchez, he likely won't be starting again anytime soon. James Bradberry and Robert McClain, who missed the last game with injuries, should be back after the bye week.
