The Jets (5-4) are back from their bye week and according to their up and down pattern they are scheduled for a loss… or are they? The joke that coach Rex Ryan has been saying all week is that they were supposed to lose on the bye week so they should be on track for a win this Sunday. Lets hope he is right and they can put their first 2 back to back wins together as they take on the Buffalo Bills (3-7) in an away game this Sunday at 1:00 p.m. In other news, the Jets signed All-Pro Ed Reed as a safety after he was released from the Texans. This reunites Reed and Rex Ryan, who he played under in Baltimore.
The big question for the Philadelphia Eagles (5-5) is : Can they break their home losing streak? It’s been going on 1 1/2 years now and is getting to be a broken record as they host the Washington Redskins (3-6) and quarterback RG3 1:00 p.m. this Sunday at home. Quarterback Nick Foles is so far ,lights out, 16 touchdowns and no turnovers filling in for the injured Michael Vick. Despite this, coach Chip Kelly hasn’t established him as a full time starter and is keeping that decision week to week. The Eagles have an excellent road record losing only 1 game to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos but that will only get you so far and opportunities are running out. It would be nice for them to get their first win in a long time and go into their bye week with a winning record.
The New York Giants (3-6) are hosting the Green Bay Packers (5-4) at home this Sunday at 4:00 p.m. Life will be a little easier since the Packers are minus quarterback Aaron Rogers. Green Bay’s back-up quarterback Scott Tolzien is coming off a loss to the Eagles last week but that doesn’t mean that the Giants should take this game lightly. A loss would almost certainly ruin the Giants’ chances at making the playoffs. Can the Giants win 4 games in a row? Eli Manning and the offense still look like hell and the defense has been picking up the slack.
This could be a trap game for the Giants. In other words, they may be looking ahead to next week’s important game against the Cowboys and not pay enough attention their current opponent. Not focusing on the team you are playing is dangerous and the Giants can ill-afford to look past anybody. They are in such a big hole that they realistically need to win out and hope for some help just to have a fighters chance at making the playoffs.
