Late Interception Takes Luster Off Jets Solid First Half

Metlife Stadium 2:50pm

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.

We have a good one at MetLife!

NFL Week Six Picks

Conor’s Corner

By Conor Green

So last week, due to time restrictions, I wasn’t able to give my picks. A sad, dark day indeed. But we’re back. My tally is 13-15 thus far. So, I picked up one game in the standings from two weeks ago. Like Bill Belichick, I get better as the season progresses. I coach up my boys, mumble some profanities, and win, win, win.

As the year moves, you get a better key on what teams are all about. I’m going at least .500 for the year. Mark my words. But if it doesn’t happen….Well, then I’ll never acknowledge it.

Five national, two local:

NFL Week 5 Recap: A Little This-A Little That

Conor’s Corner

By Conor Green

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.

Off The Cuff

By Rich Bauer

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.

Conor’s Corner

By Conor Green

Week Four of the NFL season featured more of what we’ve come to expect: Parity. We’re only four weeks into the season and have just one remaining undefeated team. That being the Chiefs, who are 4-0 atop the AFC West.

But that’s the beauty of the NFL. Unlike the NBA where the pundits are virtually never wrong, with football, the pundits are virtually never right.
