Last Week

New England

It was total domination and maybe the worst beat down in recent years as New England went to South Florida and stomped the Dolphins 43-0. Tom Brady had a near-perfect day completing 20 of 28 passes for 264 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The Pats defense pitched a shutout.


  • QB Tom Brady – 264 passing yards, 2 TDs.
  • RB Sony Michel – 21 carries, 83 yards, 1 TD.
  • WR Antonio Brown – 4 receptions, 56 yards, 1 TD
  • DE Chase Winovich – 2 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks.

New York Jets

It couldn’t have gotten much worse for Gang Green last Monday night. Already without starting quarterback Sam Darnold (mononucleosis), the New York Jets lost backup Trevor Siemian to a gruesome ankle injury on a rough tackle by Cleveland’s Myles Garrett. They were then forced into using third-stringer, Luke Falk. Playing under those circumstances the Jets only put up three points for the game. The undermanned defense held in it as long as they could, but the Jets lost 23-3.


  • QB Luke Falk – 20 of 25, 198 yards.
  • RB Le’Veon Bell – 21 carries, 69 yards, 10 receptions, 61 yards.
  • WR Robby Anderson – 4 receptions, 81 yards.
  • LB Neville Hewitt – 8 tackles, 1 sack, 1 pass defended.

This Week

If the New York Jets were fully staffed, this would be a hard game for them to win. Now they enter “the belly of the beast” with their number three quarterback, Luke Falk, running the offense. Gang Green is also missing a few of their best defensive players, linebackers and C.J. Mosley, Avery Williamson, and defensive tackle Quinnen Williams. Does anyone really think the Jets can beat New England so severely shorthanded?
