Jets-Steelers doesn't look good for Gang Green on Sunday
- October 10, 2016

So much as gone wrong for the Jets (1-3) the last two weeks that there's little reason for optimism against the Steelers (3-1), who are coming off a 43-14 drubbing of the Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday night. Week 5 of the National Football League season began with the Cardinals defeating the 49ers and it could be interesting for the New York Jets as they are in a tough spot. (more...)

How Russell Wilson affected Pederson's, Eagles' decision-making with Carson Wentz How Russell Wilson affected Pederson's, Eagles' decision-making with Carson Wentz
- October 07, 2016

The Eagles' 3-0 start has enabled them to reap some individual awards. The defense is legit, Carson Wentz has been outstanding, and they're deep at running back.

Blue Jays rout Rangers in ALDS opener
- October 07, 2016

Marco Estrada was sensational for the Blue Jays in Game 1 . Toronto came close to its first complete game of the season - and the first of Estrada's career. Hamels was the loser that day despite the fact that reliever Sam Dyson gave up the homer. That's entirely what my focus is on. I'm looking forward to the offseason and recovering, but hopefully we get to extend this playoff run. (more...)
