San Diego Chargers
After catching his third touchdown pass of the day, Plaxico Burress went wild. Well, at least by his standards.
Rex Ryan may reach downright insufferable levels this week. But that’s OK now, since his Jets are now on the good side of .500 at 4-3.
It was the hang-up heard ’round the Tri-State area — and then the nation. “I don’t dislike Mike,” Revis said on Sunday. “He had his opinion, I had mine.”
If the “x” gets put next to “Jets” in the AFC standings come January, it will be because of some soul searching that was done at halftime of Sunday’s 27-21 win over the Chargers at MetLife Stadium.
No use praising the opponents when you self-destruct. That’s how the Chargers felt Sunday after losing 27-21 to the Jets.
Facing his former team made LaDainian Tomlinson sick. Literally.
On Sunday, Ryan had no reason to apologize as his Jets made an impressive turnaround. It was San Diego that self-destructed, leaving Norv Turner to bemoan his team’s sloppiness.
The Jets have made alterations to their roster ahead of Sunday’s game against the Chargers. Wide receiver Logan Payne to the IR and defensive end Martin Tevaseu is signed for the practice squad.
Francesa wanted to get an opinion straight from Revis regarding a controversial play against Miami. Well, he got it alright. And then Francesa — and listeners across the Tri-State area — got a dial tone.
Jets coach Rex Ryan expects center Nick Mangold to play Sunday after being limited in practice on Friday. For Mike DeVito, the news isn’t as promising.
While the Giants are enjoying their week off and their surprising 4-2 record and more surprising place atop the NFC East, their roommates will be hosting the Chargers in another must-win game at the Meadowlands.
Rex Ryan needs to know that the echo of every promise must eventually land a Lombardi Trophy. Otherwise, he will go from cherubic to chubby, from cute to crude, from winner to loser in a New York minute.
Despite dropping three straight games earlier in the season, the Jets now have a chance to be over .500 going into the bye with a victory Sunday against the Chargers at MetLife Stadium.
LaDainian Tomlinson won’t say he has pointed to this game for 1 1/2 years. He won’t admit facing the San Diego Chargers on Sunday as a New York Jets running back stands out on his calendar.
