When the Jets lose, they lose big. This week they suffered a 37-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills (4-7). Geno Smith played his worst game as pro and pretty much single-handedly handed the game over to the other team on a platter. He was responsible for 3 turnovers and a fumble. collectively, the team played lousy but he deserves a good chunk of the blame for the debacle. The only thing you can really count on right now with the Jets (5-5) is their up and down win one lose one pattern. They are beating good teams and losing to bad ones. This isn’t going to get them where they need to be as there are teams breathing down their necks competing for the playoff spot. On top of that the Jets don’t have the tie breakers against at least a couple of teams they are competing with, the Pittsburg Steelers and Tennesse Titans. If their record ties one of those opponents then the other team will get the playoff spot so the Jets need to put a winning streak together and their chances are running out.
The New York Giants (4-6) brought their winning streak to 4 as they keep their slim playoff chances alive . Quarterback Eli Manning is still throwing ball to the wrong team but the Giants get to live another day. It wasn’t pretty but the Giants beat the Green Bay Packers (5-5) with a final score of 27-13. Since putting themselves in a big hole, the Giants have been playing a lot of teams with 2nd and third string quarterbacks. That can make a big time big time difference and has helped their momentum. Their big test coming is coming next week when the Giants host elite quarterback Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys at 4:00 p.m. in a must win game.
After 415 days, the Philadelphia Eagles (6-5) finally won a home game. It’s a miracle! They beat the Washington Redskins (3-7) by a score of 24-16. Quarterback Nick Foles did a good job and has become a solid backup for Michael Vick. It did get a little dicey late in the game but the Eagles held on for the victory. The Eagles now sit atop their division ahead of the Cowboys by half a game.
