Ours NFL Playoff Calculator Has an updated look at the latest Playoff film.
Time is a flat circle, but we want to help you break it. For that purpose, we have listed two experts – one who is familiar with the nuances of New York’s professional football teams and the other who is a nationally focused football analyst – to answer an essential question as a weekly service to readers: Are the Jets and Giants even better?
Devin Gordon observed, “So many ways to lose: The Amazon’s true story of the New York Mets, the worst team in the game,” from the perspective of focusing on teams domestically.
Diane Lee, an NFL analyst at Pro Football Focus, gave a national perspective.
The Giants (4-7) defense made four turnovers for the Philadelphia Eagles (5-7) and won 13-7 at home on Sunday, including three interceptions thrown by Jalan Hurts.
At the start of this season, the Giants are hopefully “fun” – that rare race of young but agile, fun and athletic, but still scary. The best bad team to watch. Quarterback Daniel Jones was an adventurer in every play, Zacchaeus Barclay returned to hit doubles and triples more than his new season’s home runs, and landed 50/50 off 50/50 balls as paid by free agent acquisition Kenny Collade Giants. He has to do beautifully this off-season. Since the team lost five of its first six games, things did not click right, but the promise came true.
Barkley was then wounded again, and then all the Giants receivers were injured, and Jason Garrett, the coordinator for their attack, revealed that there was no trick.
Barclays returned last week, with coach Joe Judge sacking Carret last week, replacing Freddie Kitchens, who spent an epic fun season in 2019 as head coach of the Cleveland Browns.
In other words, Sunday’s game against the Eagles had all sorts of fun potential: a new offensive coordinator with a wacky past, a hated NFC East rival and a Giants to unleash offense.
It was so dull. Many buns. The Giants won 13-7, but it sounds dramatic, like some bad, low-scoring angry match. It’s not like that. It’s two teams not going anywhere, and the fun is officially over.
Verdict: Successes are not even inspiration.
In my culture, there is a scientific term for laziness after a big holiday party:This.
Every movement, every thought, and the world around you moves one and a half feet slower than normal. All of your body’s generally rejected creaking and cracking feels a little more noticeable, and the only successful treatment is long sleep.
The Giants and the Eagles moved as it did on Sunday ‘Idis’.
The score was sluggish as 3-0 until the middle of the third quarter. Compassionately, the Giants extended their lead to 10, stopping Philadelphia, saving the spectators from an extra football threat or passing out of two footballs.
Johns Hurtz and Daniel Jones put together more than 60 attempts, but were less than 350 yards away. Hurts had nothing to do with their throw to the most entertaining parts of the game, except to throw one of his three interruptions.
Hurts and the two eagles run – Boston Scott and Miles Sanders – each outscored Zagan Barkley, who looked nostalgically at Philadelphia’s line of attack and wondered what it would be like to cross the battle line.
Freddie Kitchens ‘debut as the Giants’ attacking theatrical striker was won by the most minimal logic available – his offense scored more points than the opponent’s points. The bad news of this success? The Giants are technically involved in finding the wild card playoff spot, which is not healthy for anyone involved.
Verdict: More to see than last week, it’s worth it.
Zack Wilson returned to the quarterfinals after missing four games with a knee injury, beating the Jets (3-8), 21-14, in the final 18 points of the game, beating the Houston Texans (2-9).
Half the seats at NRG Stadium in Houston were filled with Texans fans on Sunday, while the other half were empty with frustration.
Both the Jets and the Texans went into the game with 2-8 records, meaning that the loser in the draft match after the undefeated Detroit Lions in April 2022 will be the real winner. In the sad, self-owned way, there was a lot of riding in this game.
The bad news of Sunday’s game is that the Jets are now one step ahead of their second choice of 2022. The good news is that they won 21-14, and their new quarterback Zack Wilson, the second overall pick for the 2021 draft, played the most disciplined game of the season when he returned from a knee injury.
However, primarily taking the ball out of his hands the Jets won. They ran 157 yards 34 times; Wilson tried just 24 passes, finished with 14 runs for 145 yards, and had the same score as the 4-yard quarterback keeper in the third quarter. His white-knuckle performance against a casual Texans defense obscured the existential question facing the Jets’ front office: Will Zack Wilson own this team or create another franchise next year?
Verdict: Magic 8-ball says “ask again later”.
What prevents the NFL from playing the Jets and Texans every week from here?
As Stephen, Bill Hadder’s “Saturday Night Live” character, puts it, the game was Everything.
Fan forums of two bad teams who are not sure whether to root for draft positioning or win? Cheque.
Newcomer Zack Wilson starting the game as if he could not hit the Hudson River from West Side Highway? Cheque.
Whatever actually happens, is the final score suggesting a consistent game for both teams? That was it too.
In the end, the Jets won against the Texans, who had to duck out with Jacksonville for their worst record at the conference.
Wilson’s performance was still far from a franchise quarterback, but the rhythm he played in the third quarter showed some promise. Finishing the Co-Ahead drive with his 4-Yard Rushing Touch Down could stand as the best lineup of the season.
For the first time this season, defensive player Quinn Williams doesn’t seem to have to provide all the run defense and bass rush himself, and combines scenes like creating jets plays and forcing sales.
It takes three months to look like an NFL team, but there are jets.
Verdict: I can’t believe I’m saying this, but … yes?
