BIG PLAY SUNDAY------FREE PREVIEW BY "WOW"
The Jets last week had an impressive win in Mark Sanchez's debut! The young kid had 281 yards passing and 2 touchdowns. What was most impressive was the Jets defense, holding the Texans high flying offense to just 183 yards total!! They also were able to sack Matt Schaub twice and get in his face 8 times. The Pats on the other stuggled but were able to escape with a win against the Bills on Monday night. Tom Brady looked a little rusty but gained steam to manage 378 yard passing 2 touchdowns and 1 int. Against the Jets however I dont see him managing the same success.Ryan has had great defenses everywhere he's coached and now with the Jets he has continued that success. The Pats on D struggled against Fred Jackson coming out of the backfield and New York has a guy who is even more dangerous in Leon Washington. I expect the Jets to play New England toug todayh and possibly pull off an upset. TAMPA BAY +4.5.....................10* PLAY Tampa Bay comes into this game on somewhat of a low note after getting thrashed by the Cowboys in Week 1. There were however some bright spots coming out of that game. Byron Leftwich made a statement throwing for 276 yards 1 TD and 0 INT. With that performance he proved that he is ready to play in '09. Also good news for Tampa was their running game they had 174 yards on 31 carries. So this Tampa attack is well equipped to do damage this year. Buffalo last week played New England tough! They actually shouldve won that game if it wasnt for the McKelvin debacle. After such a loss though it is very hard to come out and play with the same effort on a short week against this Tampa team. In short I feel Buffalo pretty much blew their load!!! Also really bad news for the Bills, their best defender Paul Posluszny is out indefinately!! The loss of Paul Posluszny is a double whammy for the Bills who were already missing solid backup MLB John DiGiorgio. Suddenly the Bills have become very vulnerable in the middle of the defense, especially against the run!! Winslow and Cadillac should have big days. Expect a Tampa offense thats hitting on all cylinders to exploit this weakness against the Bills. Buffalo's offense looked good but not great against the Pats and I dont expect Fred Jackson to have the same success against the Bucs D. I expect Tampa to be in full control of this game from start to finish and cruise to a two touchdown victory.
**WOW'S** FREE NFL PREVIEWNY JETS +3.5...............................10* PLAY
NY GIANTS +3..................................10* PLAYThe Giants come into this game off a a home win against division foe the Redskins. In that game the G-men looked impressive shutting down Washington and being able to do whatever they wanted on offense against the talented defense. Eli Manning threw for 256 yards and 1 touchdown. Before the game there were questions about the Giants recievers but last Sunday they answered the call. Dallas on the hand was superior on offense against Tampa. Romo was able to go off against the Bucs throwing for 350 yards and 3 touchdown. However, this week the Cowboys' divisional rivals the New York Giants come to town, hoping to spoil the grand opening of the new Cowboy Stadium. DE's Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck combined for 2.5 sacks last week vs. Washington - Tuck also hit Jason Campbell three times while the unit held Washington to 19/26 for 187 net passing yards, one TD and one interception. The Giants' defense was very good last year - the team averaged just 196.2 passing yards allowed per game, with 17 passing TDs handed over in 16 contests. Overall, the Giants were 5th in the NFL averaging 18.4 points allowed per game - this is one tough unit to score on. The Giants were ninth in the league with 17 interceptions and sixth in the league with 42 sacks - and they enter 2009 reloaded with play makers like the aforementioned Umenyiora. Tony Romo has to be feeling a little nervous this week, folks. Eli Manning and the Giants should be able to do whatever they want against the Cowboys D as Dallas yielded 450 yards last week to the Bucs. I fully expect New York to come away from Big D with a W.
