The Giants and Jets fought off two tough teams to win their games this weekend as Week 2 of the NFL came to a close on Monday night. No stalling, let’s get right to it.

Jets Finally Beat Buffalo

The Jets, after five consecutive losses to the Bills, finally beat their division rival and former coach Rex Ryan. The 37-31 win was highlighted by three touchdowns from Matt Forte and a strong fourth quarter from their defense after an uncharacteristically weak game from that unit. In the end the Jets offense saved the game for New York and the Jets moved to 1-1.

For the second consecutive game Darrelle Revis was beat deep, this time by Buffalo receiver Marquise Goodwin. Goodwin is an Olympic sprinter but Revis was just out of position and smoked. While Todd Bowles is deflecting questions about Revis, I’m thinking you may see Revis in more slot corner situations if this continues. Not saying Revis Island is closed, but it may be closed for repairs right now.

Giants Win Against New Orleans

Last season the Saints and Giants engaged in a shootout, which the Saints won. This year, both offenses took a less aggressive approach as the Giants slugged out a 16-13 victory at MetLife Stadium. The Giants moved to 2-0 for the first time since 2009 and Ben McAdoo picked up his second win at New York head coach. The story of the game was the receivers as Victor Cruz, Odell Beckham Jr., and rookie Sterling Shepard combined for 294 yards, thus creating the most feared receiving corps in the league.

The story of the game was the play from the Giants late as for the second consecutive week, the Giants were able to win a close game and not blow it late. The bg difference from 2015 to 2016 is the amount of confidence the team, offense and defense, has late in games as McAdoo may be the difference in that. Big Blue did cough up the ball up three times and against a better team, that could have came back to bite them. If the Giants hope to compete for a NFC East crown, the turnovers must be cut out.

Moving The Chains

  • After losing RGIII, probably for the remainder of the year, the Cleveland Browns lost their backup quarterback Josh McCown with a shoulder injury. This franchise is snakebitten. Next up in quarterback roulette, Cody Kessler.
  • Adrian Peterson tore his meniscus Sunday night against the Packers and for a normal man, that is 3-4 month injury. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s back in a month because he is superhuman.
  • There are eight 2-0 teams in the NFL and of those teams, the Baltimore Ravens is the worst of those teams. Both of their wins were flukes and in the AFC North with Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, that should change quickly.
  • Three fantasy teams and three losses. Here’s some free advice: never trust Jonathan Stewart….ever.
