Jets-Chargers Preview

January 16, 2010

Kerry Rhodes, Revis and the rest of the Jets look to keep their 'swag' going

Momentum is huge in any sport, and on Sunday both the Jets and Chargers will enter their Divisional Playoff game with plenty.  San Diego has won 11 straight and possesses one of the most lethal offenses in the sport.  Moreover, Gang Green has won 6 of 7, and their top ranked defense has given up just 8.7 ppg in those last 7 games.

Staying alive- Jets remain in playoff hunt with lopsided win

December 14, 2009

 

Thomas Jones had two touchdowns on Sunday

 

Kellen Clemens looked awful throwing the ball, but looked great handing it off as the Jets ran away with a 26-3 victory in Tampa.

Nonetheless, some things worked in the Jets favor on Sunday and some did not.

Giants defense not playoff worthy

November 23, 2009

Thanks to a career day from Quarterback Eli Manning, the New York football Giants defeated the Atlanta Falcons 34-31 in overtime Sunday. The Giants hadn’t won since beating Oakland 44-7 on Oct. 11, so it had to feel good to get a win under the belt.  It was a must win for the G-men, as they are now in good position for a playoff berth, if their offense continues to light it up like it did Sunday.  On the other hand, if their defense continues to play like it has the past few weeks, the Giants are going to be on the outside looking in.
