The big show starts with a look at the Jets falling short against the Patriots. Despite injuries and turmoil, the Giants dominate the Broncos in Denver. We’ll have a look at Colin Kaepernick’s collusion grievance with the NFL. Finally how do the Yankees figure out the Astros.
So far the Jets D and McCown are up to the task. McCown found Seferian-Jenkins for a 1 yard TD pass and later connected again with Jeremy Kerley for a 30 yard TD. The blemish, and it was a big one, was late interception by The Patriots’ Malcolm Butler with under a minute that led to a Touchdown.
To that point the defense had limited Tom Brady to 91 yards and picked him off once. But Brady marched down the field after the interception and hit Rob Gronkowski to tie the score at 14.
McCown and the Jets must limit the turnovers. As soon as he made one Brady and the Patriots pounced.
Sports are really something, don’t you think? About a month ago the Jets were garbage, Sucking for Sam and heading for an ‘oh-fer’ while the New York Football Giants (NYFG) were the darlings of the tri-state sport scene and picked by many to be a Super Bowl contender. Now as we sit here in NFL Week 6 the Jets are tied for first place in the AFC East and have the same record as the New England Patriots, Sam now Sucks, and the NYFG are imploding.
The Jets are 3-2. The Giants are 0-5. All the while, Ben McAdoo’s hair baffles and bewilders the masses. As the Joker says, it’s a funny world we live in.
No one knows what’s happening in the Big Apple. The Giants have quickly become the NFL’s horror-show dreamscape. They sport a winless 0-5 record and suffered a season-ending injury to their most marketable player, Odell Beckham. It couldn’t get worse for Big Blue.
The Yankees excruciating extra-inning loss to the Indians in Cleveland Friday was everything that baseball should be in October. Excitement, drama and filled with plenty of pressure and second guessing.
Consider this, the Cleveland Indians beat the Yankees in the playoffs in 1997, then again in 2007. Aaron Judge was 15 years old then and Gary Sanchez was just 14 years of age in ’07. The only current homegrown Yankee close to being on the roster back then is Brett Gardner who made his MLB debut a year later in 2008. It is 10 years later and Yankee fans are hoping for a different outcome in 2017.
