    Although this is Season 3 this was actually the Jets 1st game with the New Owner under full control. The Jets were able to sneak past the New England Patriots 30-23.
    Box Score: http://www.daddyleagues.com/mba/gamerecap/2373140

    With Ryan Fitzpatrick gone Geno Smith once again stepped under center giving every Jet fan in the Tri-State area bad memories, almost as bad as the butt fumble.

    However Geno proved to be serviceable going 17/21 for 238 yds and 2 td's but more importantly he didn't turn the ball over a big problem for him last year after throwing a league high 31 interceptions.... that's not a typo. Yet Geno does have room for improvement three of those incompletions were terribly thrown balls within 10 yards of the LOS. Recently signed Doug Martin was serviceable in keeping the opponents defense honest but could use a lot of improvement as he went for 68 yds on 21 rushes, adding 66 yds on 5 catches and a touchdown. In the receiving corp TE Larry Donnell led the way with 6 receptions amounting to 39 yards while Brandon Marshall had 85 yards, the majority of those came on a 63 yard catch and run the longest play of the day.

    The shining star was definitely the Jets defense although the secondary seemed porous at times, giving up 356 yards through the air. However both safeties Calvin Pryor and Alan Ball came up huge with 2 interceptions, Ball's being a late game pick 6. The rush defense was stout as to be expected with a front three of Muhammad Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson, and Damon Harrison, who seemed to be on a mission after a Pre-Season review listed the Raiders as having the best rushing duo in the MBA. The Patriots only managed a paltry 14 yards on 15 attempts 0.93 yards per attempt. 5th year OLB Quinton Coples added 2 sacks building confidence with the fans in HC Lovie Smith's decision to switch to a 3-4 defense.

    Although a victory this one must be taken with a grain of salt beating this Patriots team isn't the same as it used to be with Tom Brady now out of Foxborough and enshrined in Canton. Jimmy Garoppolo is now under center, although that may change as news out of Foxborough is that Ryan Fitzpatrick has been signed (adding more bad blood to one of the biggest rivalry's in football). Garoppolo threw for 356 yards with 2 touchdowns but 2 big interceptions. Dion Lewis took the bulk of the rush attempts but only managed 10 yards on 13 attempts. Charles Johnson's stock took a big rise in New England as he led the way with 7 receptions 108 yards and a touchdown, keep in mind he played in 9 games last year and only ended up with 188 yards 17 receptions and 1 touchdown, on pace to blow past his numbers from last year. The Patriots almost had a huge momentum swing after an originally ruled Eric Decker fumble but the call on the field was reversed giving the Jets the victory in the turnover battle at +2.

    The Jets (1-0) visit Miami to take on the AFC East division rival Dolphins (0-1) next. New England (0-1) goes home to Foxborough to take on the New Orleans Saints (1-0).

    Week 2 in the NFC North

    Chicago at Green Bay

    The Bears come out with the win in a weird one. The game was back and forth early with the Bears nursing a 17-13 lead in the third quarter. The packers marched downfield and made a terrific play on a high pass to new weapon TE Julius Thomas to have the ball at the 1 yard line. In comes Eddie Lacy, just an elite HB benched for a young guy who's faster but shittier at everything else that matters. Lacy takes the handoff, has a huge hole and dives for the goal line rather than simply walking in. Problem here is that his FB was knocked back and Lacy dives partially into Kuhn and the unexpected impact jars the ball loose into the endzone where the Bears recover. Lacy heads back to the bench never to return.

    On the ensuing drive the Bears are in trouble when they face a 3rd and 22 on their own side of the field and tack a drive stopping sack! Except that the packers player decided to drag Johnny Football down by his grill rather than just tackling him, first down Bears. A couple plays later Manziel hit Beckham Jr on a slant that turned into a 48 yard score to make it a 24-13 game.

    When Rodgers got it back he meant business even scrambling for valuable yardage.... And getting hit.... And fumbling.... And then watching the Bears score again on the sideline and throwing away any tablet that the coaching staff tried to hand him.

    After that sequence it was basically academic. The Pack got another score and failed a two point conversion but a Bears FG after a long drive followed by a relentless pass rush when the game was all but decided led to the Packers coach lamenting the game, himself, even the quality of Sean's mom as he fought through the tears to utter, "if ever there was a game to rage quit during, this was the one!"

    Key stats:
    - Bears D held packers starting HB to just 19 yards on 10 attempts
    - Bears HB Jeremy Langford had a nice game gaining over 100 yards and scoring a TD
    - Johnny Manziel was efficient hitting on over 70% of his throws for 270 yards, 3 TDs and no turnovers
