Bump N’ Run w/ KT: Giants And Jets Lose And Monmouth Blows Out Howard

After a week of coughing and sneezing, Bump N’ Run is back in the midst of a great week of football. For fans of the local teams, it all seems like a dumpster fire as both teams lost this past weekend. Let’s start BNR with the week that was for the New York Football Giants.

Giants Lose To Packers As Losing Streak Hits Three

Many are in full panic mode after the Giants’ 23-16 loss in Green Bay on Sunday night. This was New York’s third loss in a row and the issues for the Giants are two-fold. The running game has been non-existent over the last three games and it continued against the Packers as Big Blue gained only 43 yards on the ground. We saw flashes of a running game in the first two games of the season but since the New Orleans game, the lines isn’t creating holes for the makeshift Giants’ backfield and teams know that the New York running game is non-existent.

The other issue comes on the defensive side of the ball. We saw another Giants game and another Giants game with no sacks and no turnovers for New York and their rebuild defense line. After millions of dollars spent on Olivier Vernon and Janoris Jenkins and the defense is getting no pressure on quarterbacks, which in turns gives receivers time to get open. Against Baltimore, whose offense is hit or miss, its time for the Giants to get it in gear and show where all the money went this off-season.

Jets Goes Down To Steelers In Pittsburgh

So good news is Ryan Fitzpatrick didn’t throw any interceptions on Sunday. The bad news is that the Jets lost to Pittsburgh in a game where the Jet offense just stopped playing in the second half. Brandon Marshall had over 100 yards receiving but similar to the Giants’ defense, the Jet defense allowed over 400 yards to Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers.

At this point, where does the New York Jets go from here? You have a defense that is on the field more than it should and an offense that is average at best. With reports stating that Fitzpatrick’s next bad game means a Geno Smith sighting, the best the Jets can do with their remaining tough schedule is to stay the course and hope that things click in the next few weeks.

Moving The Chains

  • The year of Tennessee and their come-from-behind wins is over as they went down to Texas A&M 45-38 in OT. I still think the Volunteers are a top-five team but there drive the College Football Playoffs may be over.
  • Jet fans may be upset to know that Jeremy Kerley caught eight passes for over 100 yards and a touchdown for the 49ers last Thursday. Who knew, right?
  • Adam “Pacman” Jones is right…anyone can run behind the Cowboys offensive line. Is Ezekiel Elliott that good or is the Dallas line that amazing?
  • Monmouth won their fourth game of the season on Saturday blowing out Howard on the road 59-27. Michael Jolly and Ed Royds both ran for over 100 yards as the Hawks gained 562 yards in total offense and forced three Howard turnovers. At 4-2, Monmouth has to get it in gear for their Big South conference schedule in order to make some noise and possibly receive a FCS payoff berth.
