Tennessee Titans win in the final minutes

Karen Christensen, Tennessee Titans Reporter

By Karen Christensen // @ksc47

Tennessee Titans 26 – New York Jets 22

It was another ugly start for the Titans.  Their possession of the game ended with quarterback Marcus Mariota being sacked. Since the Titans lost to division rival Houston Texans last week 34-17; one would think that the Titans would come out with guns blazing.

Every Tennessee player on the field looked like they were wishing they were somewhere else or they were in a trance state. Mariota had a pass intercepted in the first quarter; Jets cornerback Trumaine Johnson returned the ball 31 yards and got a touchdown, giving the Jets a 10-0 lead.

A mystery surrounds Dolphins win against the Jets

Dolphins 13 – Jets 6

There is no way I could start this article in any way other than this: I have no idea why All-Pro safety Reshad Jones removed himself from the game.

I watched him closely during the game and he looked like he had a slight limp. I never got confirmation he was injured in any way, leaving a cloud of mystery to why he wasn’t out on the field.

We even saw defensive end Cameron Wake talk to him for about 10 minutes. When Cam was questioned about that conversation, his response was “That is between him and I”.

Bears need to attack Jets with military precision

Wanda Wiedman, Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63 

One of my favorite hobbies is going to air shows and learning all about military air-combat. Pilots who flew during World War II were either the aggressor waiting to attack or sitting ducks waiting to be attacked. Their eyes always had to be scanning the skies for the enemy.

On Sunday, the Chicago Bears will battle the New York Jets in Soldier Field. Even though all games should be a win, this one, at home needs to happen in a big way. After back-to-back losses against the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots, the Bears can’t afford to let another game slip through their fingers by a touchdown or field goal. It is imperative that the Monsters of the Midway attack the Jets with a military method of attack.

The drought is over: Browns WIN!

Browns 21 – 17 Jets 

BROWNS WIN! BROWNS WIN! THE DROUGHT IS OVER!

Never let it be said that I bury the lead! So many things to talk about regarding the Cleveland Browns vs the New York Jets Thursday night game but I figured I’d start with the most important fact of all – BROWNS WIN!

635 days since their last victory. 1,413 days since their last win on a Thursday night. 30 quarterbacks since their return in 1999. Three games into the season and they’ve scored 21 points in all of them. These are just a few of the fun and crazy and sometimes heartbreaking numbers that belong to the Browns.

Hopefully, one of those numbers – 30 QBs – will be held for the next 10+ years. Due to an injury to Tyrod Taylor, fans finally got to see the number one pick from the draft, Baker Mayfield, and they were not disappointed.

Tannehill leads Dolphins to Week 2 Division Win

Official Reporter, Miami Dolphins

By Lisa Johnson // @LJ1303 

Miami Dolphins 20 – 12 New York Jets

The Miami Dolphins are off and running, bringing home a “W” from their division rivals, New York Jets. And as of right now, they hold first place in the AFC East.

The Defense set the tone early and often, pressuring Rookie Sam Darnold into two interceptions that lead to 14 points for the Dolphins. They also harassed the rookie into making several mental mistakes costing the Jets poor field position and points.  Continue reading “Tannehill leads Dolphins to Week 2 Division Win”

For the NY Jets, not where you start but where you finish

NFL Reporter

By Marquita Quinones // @Latinlove729

Jets 48 – 17 Lions

It’s not where you start, it’s how you finish.

That famous quote definitely applied to the Monday Night Football game between the New York Jets and the Detroit Lions. Starting rookie quarterback Sam Darnold proved this to be true in particular in his debut performance.

Already having the pressure of being the first choice of coach Todd Bowles, and then the added pressure of this being your NFL debut, Darnold had a lot riding on the game. Unfortunately for Sam, it looked like it was going to be a long night.

On his very first play, he rolled out, locked on his target and released the ball but regrettably the intended target was nowhere in sight. However, Detroit Lions cornerback Quandre Diggs was, and he returned that pick for the Lions first touchdown.

Undaunted by his dreadful start, Darnold quickly adjusted, leading the Jets to a 48-17 victory at Ford Field. Darnold finished the night with 198 passing yards and two touchdowns.

New York Jets still looking for that head signal caller

Marquita Quinones NY Jets contributor

By Marquita Quinones //@Latinlove729

Unfortunately for the New York Jets, the game on Thursday night against the Washington Redskins left more questions than answers in regards to who will be the Jets starting quarterback.

Both rookie quarterback Sam Darnold and the more experienced QB Teddy Bridgewater are up for the job. Darnold had somewhat of a shaky start. It was not the performance he was expecting, and am sure Coach Todd Bowles was hoping to see more since Sam had missed the first practice at training camp, but this was not Darnold’s night. Although his performance was not bad, the New York Jets would like to see a clearer picture of who will be there starting quarterback.

Darnold went 8 for 11 and 62 yards. He made some impressive throws, but his last one was a turnover in the red zone. Head coach Todd Bowles did, however, absolve Darnold by blaming the mistake on poor play calling.

2018 NFL Draft: QBs to provide big impact for 5 teams

Kate Arhar
Cleveland Browns Reporter

 

By Kate Arhar // @ClvlndK8

Round One of the 2018 NFL Draft saw five Quarterbacks get taken: Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Josh Rosen and Lamar Jackson. These men should have a huge impact on their new teams and could really shake-up their divisions.

The first four all went in the top 10 but it took a while for Jackson to find a home. In what may have been the most joyful moment of the evening for a lot of his fans, the Ravens traded back into the first round to get him at 32. Two went to the AFC North and two went to the AFC East. Both those divisions are going to see the quality of competition rise significantly in the next couple years.

OurTurf’s Mock NFL Draft Part 1

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman//@WandaW63

Free agency is pretty much on the quiet front with some players still trickling on to teams, such as quarterback Blaine Gabbert to the Tennessee Titans, and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to the Los Angeles Rams.  But now it’s all about the draft and filling the holes that will make or break a team. So here is my attempt at Round 1 of the NFL Draft.
