Happy Monday, everyone!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed the beautiful weather – it is very nice outside today!
And speaking of the great outdoors, the New England Patriots will be outside later today when they visit the New York Jets. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m.
Fans of the Patriots – and yes, the Jets, too – can watch the game on ESPN.
New England enters tonight’s contest with just two wins – they have not won a game since late September when they beat the Las Vegas Raiders at home. Can they snap their four-game losing streak against the winless Jets? Hopefully, but if we have learned anything over these past few weeks, anything is possible these days in the National Football League (NFL).
The second half of the NFL’s 2020 season truly began yesterday with some interesting outcomes, including the Miami Dolphins outlasting the Arizona Cardinals, the Carolina Panthers putting a scare into the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Dallas Cowboys almost beating the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Did you watch last night’s match-up between Drew Brees and Tom Brady? If not, you missed an impressive showing by the New Orleans Saints, which beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 38-3.
And finally, Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills scored an impressive win at home, defeating the Seattle Seahawks, 44-34. Allen tallied four touchdowns, including three through the air, while the defense intercepted Russell Wilson twice.
Here are a few other news and links from another wild and crazy day of professional football:
- Tua Tagovailoa and Kyler Murray put on a show yesterday in Arizona. I can’t wait for these two young quarterbacks to compete against each other in the future.
- Lamar Jackson is showing signs of improvement, even if he is not producing the same numbers from one year ago.
- Dalvin Cook was the player to watch for a second-straight week as the Minnesota Vikings topped the Detroit Lions.
- The Tennessee Titans picked up their sixth win of the season by defeating the Chicago Bears at home by a score of 24-17.
Alright, that will do it for now, but stay tuned for more blogs and social media posts as the day progresses! And remember to smile, but also be good to everyone!
