Week 2 was pretty good, huh? Another amazing slate is ahead of us.
Here’s to multiple historic fourth-quarter comebacks, Mark Sanchez’s one-liners in the booth and James Harden being gifted balls in the end zone. (How did the Sixers star resist dribbling it 14 times and then shooting the pigskin?)
Let’s get into it:
1. A New York State of Mind
I live in New York City, where there are fans of all 32 NFL teams. Working in Lower Manhattan every day, I get a great opportunity to see thousands of people hustling, bustling and shoving pizza slices down their throats as they pop up from subways and try to avoid walking into traffic while checking their phones.
I also get to see a ton of football jerseys in the wild. And let me tell you, the Giants and Jets jerseys have been pulled out of the back of the closet and are out this week. And that’s understandable considering the long waits those fans have endured to actually wear those jerseys with some morsel of pride.
Jets pull off a stunner!
Craig Carton celebrates after his New York Jets pulled off a miracle comeback in Cleveland.
Ever lose a few pounds and slip into those jeans from five or 10 years ago and just feel great? That’s the 34-year-old Goldman Sachs banker changing out of the shirt and tie and rocking a Saquon jersey to the bar after work right now.
Jets fans are like the Undertaker gif this week, somehow alive and up after being dead and buried before the leaves even started to turn color. Last week was a wild one for the entire franchise, starting with a head coach who had a 4-14 career record insisting he was collecting “receipts” on all those who were mocking his team, and ending with the most improbable Jets victory … ever.
You’ve read or devoured the final 90 seconds of the Jets’ miracle win in Cleveland a million ways, but that victory doesn’t happen if three very important things occur.
A. The two rookie playmakers were fantastic
