New York Jets
The Denver Broncos are coming off a loss, and that means bad news for the winless Oakland Raiders. Peyton Manning loves to dissect a bad defense, and that’s what he’s prepping to do right now—leaving the Silver & Black on the spot for Sunday’s game at the Coliseum against the defending AFC champs.
In the modern NFL, only four teams have gone through a winless season: the 1960 Dallas Cowboys, the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 1982 Baltimore Colts and the 2008 Detroit Lions. If the Raiders can’t win this weekend in Cleveland, they could be looking at an 0-11 start—and that’s when the pressure will start to mount. Avoiding membership in this exclusive club will be paramount for the Silver & Black.
The New England Patriots are going in one direction and the New York Jets are going in another. On “Thursday Night Football,” the teams are going to face off in an AFC East battle that may not be nearly as competitive as it has been in past years. Former NFL quarterback Trent Green took some time to speak with me regarding both teams, injuries, and their direction for the season.
hese divisional rivals are going in opposite directions. After a season-opening victory, the Jets have lost five in a row. While they had a chance against Green Bay and Chicago in Weeks 2 and 3, they’ve gone backwards from there.
The Oakland Raiders have a new head coach, for now, and they’ve just had their bye week. How will they fare against the 4-1 San Diego Chargers at home this week? Well, the Bolts are on a roll, and they look very good. The exact opposite can be said of Silver & Black, so don’t expect things to suddenly get better for Oakland now that Dennis Allen has been fired.
Including Sunday’s Week Five action, the San Diego Chargers are 4-1, the Denver Broncos are 3-1, and the Kansas City Chiefs are 2-3. Each team has a positive points differential, while the Oakland Raiders are 0-4 with a minus-52 differential. Yes, it’s going to be a long season for the Silver & Black.
Let’s take a look at why exactly the New York Jets need to make the switch from Geno Smith to Michael Vick.
There was timeout confusion at a key moment in the New York Jets loss to the Packers Sunday. “Any player on the field can call a timeout, and that’s the way it was forever,” John […]
Let’s break down the New York Jets horror story from Sunday in Green Bay.
Two weak spots from Week One—the running game and the defense—could struggle again in Week Two if Maurice Jones-Drew and Nick Roach can’t get healthy in time to face the Houston Texans at the Coliseum on Sunday.
