B&C Morning Show: Jets Remain Relevant; Knicks Keep Rollin’ Right Along
The Jets took their 3-6 record to St. Louis, saddled with the task of saving what was left of their season — and Rexy’s Gang responded with a 27-13 pasting of the Rams.
Because of the win, when the Jets host the Patriots on Thanksgiving night, the game will actually hold so meaning. And for that I think all football fans are thankful, especially those who root for the Green and White.
Boomer and Craig got things started by breaking down the Jets win and what it means moving forward. The Booms was impressed by Mark Sanchez’s performance, citing how decisive the Jets quarterback was with regards to his decision making throughout the game.
The Jets also appear to have caught a break, as Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski reportedly suffered a broken forearm during the New England’s 59-24 blowout win over the Colts and is not likely to play Thursday night.
As for the Giants, they were still licking their wounds after getting beat down by the Bengals in Week 10 and unfortunately for Big Blue, the bye week wasn’t all that kind as far as the standings are concerned. The Cowboys held off the Browns 23-20 in OT and have climbed back to the .500 mark at 5-5 – just one game behind the Giants in the NFC East.
Tom Coughlin’s Giants will be back in action this Sunday night, against the Packers at MetLife Stadium.
Rounding things out, after falling to the Grizzles on Friday night, the Knicks responded by taking care of business yesterday afternoon at the Garden against the over-matched Indiana Pacers, winning 88-76. When you combine the Knicks’ 7-1 record, with the Nets’ – who beat the Kings in Sacramento 99-90 – 6-2 mark and you have people talking about the NBA, Boomer and Craig among them.
And not to be forgotten, after a wild weekend of college football, it’s Notre Dame who find themselves atop the rankings, with a possible matchup against Alabama for a National Championship on the horizon, which isn’t sitting well with Craig. Boomer on the other hand, he was just trying to make sense of Maryland’s possible move from the ACC to the Big 10.
And with all of that to talk about, the Dynamic Radio Duo were off and running…
