Jets collapse, Giants comeback

The NY Jets (2-2) succumbed to a Giant collapse, 17-34, against the Baltimore Ravens (3-1), and the NY Giants (3-1) came back to enjoy a late fourth quarter victory, 31-27, over the Arizona Cardinals (1-3)! Both NY teams were visiting, the Jets need some work, while the Giants are surprising everyone with late great heroics. Usually it is vice versa. Check out the full NFL Scoreboard!

In the Jets-Ravens game, Jets QB Mark Sanchez was labeled “Sanchize” by majority of Jets fans after an awful outing. Sanchez was giving the ball away with four TO’s, three turned into TD’s for the Ravens! He completed only 11-35 passes for 119 yards, no TD’s, one interception, and three forced fumbles for a bare 30.5 passer rating. The Ravens D was smashing through the Jets offensive line, similar to the Raiders last week, so all the blame cannot go to Sanchez. The Jets offensive line needs a serious tune-up.

“When you get into situations like this, guys get so frustrated and they start missing some easy stuff,” Sanchez said. “I’m as guilty of that myself. I was missing some easy throws at the end of the game. We have all the ability in the world on offense, and now it’s time to put it together.” – foxsports


In the Giants-Cardinals game, Giants QB Eli Manning went to work late in the fourth quarter. With 3:10 left (in the game), Eli connected with WR Julio Cruz on a “controversial” 19-yard catch, putting the Giants at the Cardinals 29-yard line. Cruz caught the ball, stumbled, and fell to the ground untouched. He got right up, and flicked the ball out of his hands. The Cardinals pounced on the ball, acting like it was a fumble. The ref’s make the right call, and concluded that Cruz “gave himself up”, and it was not ruled a fumble. On the next play, Eli connected with WR Hakeem Nicks for a 29-yard pass, and the go-ahead TD! Hakeem Nicks (pic above) had quite a day catching 10 passes for 162 yards and one TD!

Rule 7, Section 2, Article 1 (e) states that “an official shall declare the ball dead and the down ended when a runner is out of bounds or declares himself down by falling to the ground, or kneeling and making no effort to advance.” foxsports
