- Have the Jets lost their swagger? The New York Jets have now lost two in a row with another sloppy performance coming from Mark Sanchez as the Miami Dolphins scored all their points off of Jet turnovers. Sanchez was off-target all night, only completing 17 out of 44 passes for 216 yards and a pick. He has now thrown a pick in eight consecutive games. What’s even worse? The Jets haven’t scored a touchdown in two straight games. Is he finally feeling the pressure? We will find out next week when the Jets visit the Steelers.
- Brody Croyle of the Kansas City Chiefs is now 0-10 as a starting quarterback……yikes.
- The Washington Redskins’ special teams were just disastrous Sunday afternoon as it cost them the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers extending their losing streak to three. First, kicker, Graham Gano missed two chip-shot field goals in the first half; then, holder, Hunter Smith was unable to receive the snap on the game tying extra-point attempt in the final nine seconds. It was just flat out embarrassing to see this from a NFL team.
- Time for a makeover in Cincy? I believe so. The loss to Pittsburgh now extends Cincy’s losing streak to ten. Carson Palmer continues to give the opposition points as he handed touchdowns to Lamar Woodley and Troy Polamalu. He now leads the league with the most interceptions returned for scores. I thought the Dallas Cowboys were a big disappointment, but this Bengal team isn’t too far behind.
- It was an ugly game and loss for the Green Bay Packers. The Packers simply couldn’t muster any offense. They were two for twelve on third downs and turned the ball over three times. Not to mention, the running game was nonexistent. Rodgers led the team in rushing with two carries for 25 yards and he was out for most of the game. That just isn’t acceptable. It was an overall, sloppy performance by the Packers. Even though Rodgers went down, this team has the talent to put up more than three lousy points against an average Lions’ defense. The Packers have three huge games remaining (Patriots, Giants and Bears). For the sake of their season, let’s hope Rodgers returns quickly.
- Like I said before, the Bears’ success relies on their ability to win the turnover margin, but on Sunday that wasn’t the case. The Bears turned the ball over four times resulting in a good old-fashioned butt kicking by the New England Patriots. I think we all know who the best team in the league is…….
