NY Jets Blamed in Breakup

It wasn't another woman that got between Mark Sanchez and Eva Longoria ... it was 52 other men ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to the former couple tell us ... they broke up because Mark was impossible for Eva to be around because he was in such a crappy mood over the NY Jets' horrible season.
As one source puts it, "It's hard to maintain a relationship when one person is upset all the time."
FYI -- the Jets are 3-4 and coming off another heartbreaking loss to Tom Brady's Patriots.
Despite the split, we're told the two are serious about remaining friends -- and have nothing but respect for each other.

New York Jets interception-machine Mark Sanchez might actually have done something right this year ... and her name's Kate Upton -- this according to the super model herself.
Rumors have been spreading like wildfire ... Mark and Kate are an item -- but we asked the buxom Victoria's Secret angel straight up ... are you single ... and she played coy, replying, "What do you think?"
We pressed a little more ... asking if Mark was the mystery man -- Kate hedged, responding, "I don't know!"
As for the real truth -- Kate tells us, "It's whatever you think!"
So here's what we think -- if Mark had any game, he would have AT LEAST made the playoffs.
