Thursday night football. Doesn’t have quite the same ring as Sunday or Monday, but it’ll have to do. The Jets blew a 24-6 lead, allowed the Pats to tie the game on a touchdown with one second remaining in regulation, then went on to win in overtime 34-31. As was said in last night’s live-blog at KSK, it was the most boring division rivalry overtime game to determine first place played in primetime, ever.
Matt Cassel somehow threw for 400 yards and three touchdown passes, which is odd, because watching the game the only thing I could think was “career backup.” Don’t ask that guy for anything longer than a 15-yard completion. On the other side of the ball, Brett Favre didn’t even throw an interception, so you KNOW it wasn’t a fun game to watch.
There are only two ways you cared about this game. One was you had fantasy players involved. The other is you’re a douchebag. Sorry. Facts is facts.
