With Geno Smith struggling can the Jets “ground and pound” Miami?
The New England Patriots have a reputation for playing their best football in December. Beginning with their December 1 meeting against a struggling Houston Texans team, the Patriots will get an opportunity to re-enforce that reputation.
On paper before the season, this game had all the makings of knock-down, drag-out affair as two bitter NFC rivals would meet for the first time in 2013. But reality got in the way for both the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins, as both teams have stumbled through the NFL season. Rather than playoff position, the only thing at stake is pride as theses teams meet on Sunday night.
The confrontation between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning exceeded the hype. After watching the Broncos build a 24-0 lead in the first half, the Patriots came out storming in the second half and came all the way back to get the sensational win.
Another putrid performance by rookie quarterback Geno Smith has the Jets lost on offense.
With a windy MetLife Stadium as a backdrop for a key NFC East matchup, the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys battled for a full 60 minutes. A Dan Bailey field goal from 32 yards out with no time remaining propelled the Cowboys to a 24-21 victory over the Giants.
Whenever a regular season NFL game receives as much hype as Sunday night’s Broncos/Patriots game did, it often seems as if the actual game is anti-climatic. This one, however, may have exceeded the hype.
Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 31-yard field goal for New England after a misplayed punt return by Denver, lifting the Patriots to a 34-31 overtime victory over the Broncos on Sunday night.
Tony Romo threw two touchdowns and led a drive that set up Dan Bailey’ 35-yard field goal on the final play as the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Giants 24-21 Sunday.
Joe Flacco threw a 66-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones, Justin Tucker kicked four field goals and the Baltimore Ravens shut down the sputtering offense of the New York Jets in a 19-3 victory Sunday.
