HOLBROOK, NY – Sorry for the tardy post today – Management and the MTM Edit Staff are in Paris for the Rugby World Cup. But we’re all still here, so let’s talk sports we understand. Here’s the slate: Giants Doomed, Hope for Jets, Braves-Phillies Recap.
Coming off an embarrassing 24-3 shellacking at the hands of the Seahawks, the Giants will travel to Miami as massive 12.5 point underdogs to face the NFL’s top offense. It can’t get much worse for the G-men sitting at 1-3 having been outscored a league worse 122-43. Good for a -76 point differential.
Hope for Jets
For the other team that resides at the Meadowlands, the Jets showed signs of life –Taking the defending champs to the wire losing 23-20. Jets QB Zach Wilson gave fans hope when he played, arguably the best game of his young career. The Jets travel to Denver Sunday to play the Broncos as 2.5 point underdogs. This is as good a chance as the Jets will have to get back in the win column against a Broncos team coming off its first win of the season against the Bears, however they have struggled as a team this season. Denver ranks last in almost every single defensive category, giving up a whopping 37.5 PPG on the season. Where Denver has really struggled is defending the run, giving up 5.6 yards per carry. Translation, Breece Hall should be in for a monster day.
Back to the world of baseball...
Us Mets fans are left watching our biggest rivals face off in the National league divisional series. Saturday night the Phillies defeated the Braves 3-0, to take a 1-0 series lead. The Phils stole one on the road from the Braves scratching out just enough off of Cy Young candidate Spencer Strider. The Braves set all kinds of offensive records this season, Ronald Acuna Jr with the first ever 40 homer 70 stolen base season… Matt Olson crushing 54 long-balls… the team scored an incredible 5 or more runs in 104 of their 162 games. The Bravos will turn to Max Fried looking to avoid a 2-0 deficit and the Phillies will send former Met Zach Wheeler to the mound Monday night in Atlanta.
And for something else…
