Atlanta is still undefeated, but I’m not totally buying into them. It’s all about the playoffs with this group.
Seven weeks into the season the Eagles have fired their defensive coordinator and the Panthers have fired their GM. Atlanta remains the league’s only unbeaten team, and only three AFC teams have winning records.
The two-time Super Bowl MVP has been sacked a league-low five times through the first six games of the season, and he’s been hit only 11 times — total.
Six weeks into the NFL season and this is what we know: that old cliche of “any given Sunday” has never been more accurate. Parity, now more than ever.
The Jets are not going to win the division, but they can take baby steps, and that will put them in contention for an AFC Wild Card spot. It looks hopeless right now, but the schedule makers have given them a chance to rise up out of the muck.
“I wasn’t trying to hurt him, obviously,” Jets guard Matt Slauson said. “I must have just caught him by surprise, but unfortunately, things like that happen.”
“He really is that good,” Woody Johnson said of Mark Sanchez. “I wouldn’t look at the numbers too seriously… A quarterback’s job, ultimately, is to win games.”
Rex Ryan says there’s “no question” that Mark Sanchez is the Jets’ starting quarterback. “We’re planning on having success,” he said.
They played hard and they played better, but they fell short against the Texans on Monday night at MetLife Stadium. They were fortunate that the 5-0 Texans didn’t play their best game, but the Jets couldn’t take advantage of the opportunities that were in front of them.
Antonio Cromartie is not Darrelle Revis. Let’s just make that perfectly clear. But for the first time in his two-plus-year tenure with the Jets he appears to want to be.
Five weeks into the season we have two unbeaten teams and one winless team. Drew Brees broke a 52-year-old record once thought to be unbreakable. Everybody is over .500 in the NFC West, and what is wrong with the Packers?
I’m not yet going to root for draft-spot-clinching losses after watching the Jets fall to Houston. But I can see it on the horizon.
Mark Sanchez finished 14 of 31 for 230 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions — but was done in by a few tipped passes.
Arian Foster ran for 152 yards and a touchdown, and the Texans stayed unbeaten by defeating the New York Jets for the first time in team history, hanging on for a 23-17 victory Monday night.
Jet fans — start worrying! Any way you break this game down, it figures to be another struggle for Gang Green.
