Two defensive-minded teams with sub-par quarterbacks produced the lowest-scoring game of the season last night. The Arizona Cardinals improved to 11-3 without scoring a touchdown, winning in St. Louis 12-6.
The Rams have been especially strong, as they are coming off back-to-back shutouts. While three in a row does not look likely, they could very well hold the visitor to less than two touchdowns.
The St. Louis Rams aren’t necessarily out of the playoff race, but one more loss could get them to that point. The Arizona Cardinals have struggled a little since Carson Palmer went down with a season-ending injury. Now, the two NFC West teams are going to battle it out on “Thursday Night Football” and CBS Sports’ Dan Fouts talked about how important the game is for both.
A win Thursday could put Arizona in the playoffs for the first time in five seasons; the simplest combination involves Dallas and Philadelphia not tying.
The 2014 season is beginning like a repeat of the 2013 campaign for the New York Football Giants. Even with Arizona starting quarterback Carson Palmer sidelined with a bad shoulder, the G-men could not take advantage of backup Drew Stanton seeing his first action since 2010 and handed the Cardinals a 25-14 victory at the Meadowlands.
My guess is that the Jets took one look at Tebow during off-season workouts, then another in training camp, and then came to the decision that they made a horrible mistake.
There will be no dramatic Super Bowl return for Darrelle Revis. Head coach Rex Ryan said Revis will have surgery next week to repair the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, suffered almost three weeks ago at Miami.
Drew Stanton’s time as Jets backup QB was brief — one week, to be exact. His reasons for signing and then asking out could provide insight into a franchise mired in Sanchez vs. Tebow.
I respect anyone of faith who takes their deity seriously and treats people with the very respect that their faith demands. But this Tim Tebow throng is beginning to feel creepy and cult-like.
Well that was quite a short tenure in New York. The Jets have traded third-string quarterback Drew Stanton to the Indianapolis Colts for an undisclosed draft pick, the team confirmed on Friday.
Drew Stanton is seeking a departure from the Jets following Wednesday’s trade for Tim Tebow.
To the fan that doesn’t bother to pay attention to salary cap ramifications it appears as if Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum has been asleep at the switch. But, really, it only appears that way.
The Jets addressed a couple of their major needs in free agency Friday, signing wide receiver Chaz Schilens and backup quarterback Drew Stanton.
The Jets’ search for a viable backup to quarterback Mark Sanchez continues.
With NFL free agency now under way, and the Jets seeking a No. 2 gunslinger to back up Mark Sanchez, Gang Green has made a call to ex-Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne, according to sources.
