New York Jets

The rotating carousel that is the Jets season saw them lose to rival Buffalo 37-13. The Bills were up 34-7 to start the 4th quarter, and chase Geno Smith out of the game. Smith threw three interceptions, fumbled twice (lost one), and was sacked four times. He would be benched for Matt Simms. If the logic continues, the Jets will go to Baltimore next week, and emerge victorious.

Jim Marshall Teams Going the Wrong Way

Woe to the teams having a tough season, well, at least to some of them. The Texans are now losers of 8 in a row, and lead the pack in the loser column streak. After starting 2-0, they’re just a sad site, and you honestly thought the Texans would get things right against the Raiders at least. Nope. Joining their slump? Falcons (4), Chargers (3), Packers (3). Just as everyone thought.

The Ending of Monday Night Football

It’s becoming widespread chaos. The Panthers won on Monday Night Football, but not until a flag thrown in the end zone was picked up. Luke Kuechly did just about what would make any receiver not catch a ball, bear hug holding. The officials gathered, and announced there was no foul on the play because the ball was uncatchable. It was well underthrown, but wow. How ironic that the Patriots lose because of a penalty, again? Karma really does suck.
