This week the Giants go to Atlanta with a chance to do the same thing to the team that has played the best regular-season football in the NFC this year.
The madness continued in Week 14. The Chargers bombed the Steelers in Pittsburgh, the Falcons get Cam’ed in Carolina, the Pats flexed their muscles against Houston and the 9-4 Ravens fired their offensive coordinator after blowing a game in D.C.
Look out. That familiar sight is the New England Patriots romping through December, looking like a Super Bowl team.
It’s gibberish. Beyond the obvious, athletic splendor of pro football, the primary reason we watch it is the palpable, inherent danger. To deny that is to deny us.
These three are notable players already, and RGIII is on the cusp of greatness. By this time next year, they may be challenging Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Tom Brady for the top three spots among quarterbacks in the NFL.
Patriots embarrassed the New York Jets with a 35-point second quarter in a 49-19 victory Thursday night.
As Smith was preparing to leave the 49ers practice late Wednesday and go home to his family the night before Thanksgiving, he was summoned to come in and speak to Jim Harbaugh.
It isn’t one moment or mantra or mistake that felled the Jets this year, or any of the last 43 years. There is a systemic sickness in them, and it’s hard to find a cure.
The Jets’ chances of beating the Patriots are better with Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez both out with injuries. But the problem is that Belichick would like nothing more than making the Jets look like turkeys on Thanksgiving.
Silverman says… if the Jets beat the Pats, they won’t lose again during the regular season.
Is Eli Manning the best quarterback in the NFL? If you were drafting a quarterback not named Griffin or Luck, whom would you pluck?
Ryan insisted on Monday that the Jets “go down to win,” and those who think that the team was playing “scared” in a 29-26 defeat are “ridiculous.”
They won’t be favored when they return from a bye week to play at Seattle in Week 10 or when they host the Patriots the following week, but they have an excellent chance of going 8-1 or 7-2 in the final nine games.
One thing is for sure after watching Sunday’s game — make that two things. The Patriots are vulnerable, and the Jets had no business losing that one.
The Jets snatched defeat from the jaws of victory on Sunday — and they managed to do it in as agonizing a fashion as the hardcore and old school fans have ever seen.
