Antonio Cromartie has his sights set on playing Sunday. Now, it’s up to the doctors.
New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes might have provided the Carolina Panthers with some bulletin board material.
“I don’t know. We’ll see,” coach Rex Ryan said. “Obviously, we’d like to get him out here if he can play and can be effective.”
Jets coach Rex Ryan knows his team needs a win on Sunday to remain legitimate contenders in the AFC playoff picture. But that won’t be easy against 9-4 Carolina.
The last time the Jets won consecutive games was just a shade over a year ago. If they want to keep their playoff hopes alive they will almost certainly have to do it again, for starters.
It was uncertain exactly when Cromartie was hurt, but he and teammate Ed Reed smacked into each other while trying to defend a pass to Rod Streater in the third quarter Sunday.
Geno Smith took some razzing from his coaches as they watched film of New York’s victory. This time, it wasn’t for a turnover. It was for the rookie quarterback acting like a tough guy.
Giants linebacker Jon Beason could be in for a huge payday. He’s helped hold the Giants’ defense together.
The Carolina Panthers topped the New England Patriots 24-20 Monday night for their sixth straight victory.
Running back Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings is finding comfort on the football field after tragically losing his 2-year-old son.
It’s expected that Beason will challenge Mark Herzlich for a starting spot at middle linebacker with the Giants once he learns the defensive scheme. The Giants rank 21st in overall defense.
The Giants’ offense is a mess, and coach Tom Coughlin knows time is running out to find answers and salvage the season.
After Sunday’s shutout loss to the previously winless Carolina Panthers, no one can argue that Big Blue hasn’t earned its position at the bottom of the NFC East standings. After all, the G-men allowed the Panthers to set a team record with seven sacks of Eli Manning. Panthers quarterback tossed three touchdown passes as Carolina thoroughly embarrassed New York 38-0.
The Giants are in trouble: Of the 161 teams that have started the season 0-3 since 1978, only five made the NFL playoffs.
Hynoski was taken to the locker room for X-rays on his shoulder early in the first quarter.
