Good morning, Sports fans! Davey Mac here with here with another Sports Report for ya and we’ve got a big one! All kinds of scores and matchups are in the works…but first!
Did you watch any of that Giants-Jets game yesterday? It was not good. The Jets ended up beating the Giants in Overtime…13 to 10…and if you watched the game like I did…my condolences to you. It was some of the worst football we’ve ever seen. Both teams strategy must have been PUNT…because no one could convert a third down into a first down. Meanwhile, more players got injured on the awful turf at MetLife Stadium. It was horrible.
In the first half, on twenty possessions, the teams combined for twenty punts…the most in a half in any NFL game since 2000. After Giants backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor (playing for a sidelined Daniel Jones) got injured himself, the Giants put in the third-string QB Tommy DeVito…and apparently they had not confidence in him. The Giants…who had -9 in passing yards in the first half…ran the ball on 33 of their 34 plays in the second half. My, oh my.
Meanwhile, the Jets were not much better. After coming off of a bye, the Jets looked inept on offensive side of the ball as Jets qb Zach Wilson struggled mightily.
The game was not coached particularly well, either, as this loss is on Giants coach Brian Daboll. With the Giants up three points and 26 seconds to play…the Giants had the ball around the Jets 20-yard line on 4th and 1…meanwhile Sauon Barkley had rushed for 128 yards in the game. He was the ONLY good offensive player on the field. The Jets had no timeouts. A first down ends the game…but Daboll went with a field goal attempt. Well, especially in the rainy and windy weather…Graham Gano missed the field goal…and then Zach Wilson put together a drive to tie the game with no time in the clock. The Jets then won in O.T. when the got the ball. Gang Green improve to 4 and 3. The Giants drop to 2 and 6. At the end of the day…this was one of the most forgettable games we’ve seen in a long time. NO BUENO to both teams! Now on to the Scoreboard!
