The Jets have a tough game coming up on Monday. They are playing a team that just lost their first two games with seconds left in both. First the Chargers lost to the Panthers on the last play of the game, with no time on the clock. Week two the Chargers lost to the Broncos on a blown call by the referee with on seconds left on the clock. The Chargers are going to go into the game against the Jets, in the spotlight of Monday Night Football, with fire in their eyes, looking to take no mercy on the Jets. The Jets are coming off of a heartbreaking loss to the Patriots. The Jets and their fans all thought the Jets would beat the Patriots and be on the top of the division. Instead, the Jets left the game shaking their heads. The Jets got the ball to the one yard like and had 3 chances to put the ball in the end zone, but instead they ran the ball 3 times by way of Thomas Jones and got stuffed three times on the line. Call me crazy, but I am pretty sure there is a guy named Brett Favre taking the snaps. Why would the Jets not try throwing the ball? After that point it was all downhill.
This week both teams are looking for a big win. They have the world watching with their game on Monday and both teams want to show everyone that they are contenders. The Jets need a big win this week. If the Jets can pull off a victory against the favored Chargers, it will show that they are not the same team that they were last year. A win will put the Jets at 2-1, with one more game before the bye week. Worst case scenario is to go into the bye week 1-3, and if the Jets do this, there may not be enough in the tank to come back. The AFC East is tougher than ever with the Buffalo Bills showing that they are a ready to fight for first place, and the Patriots are not showing any slowing down with their pro-bowl quarterback Tom Brady done for the year.
This week will prove to be a big test for the underdog Jets. Jet fans are curious if their team has the potential for the playoffs this season and this game will help show if they do or don't.
Kickoff is at 8:30 on Monday night on ESPN. The world is watching, lets see if the Jets can prove themselves worthy to play with the big boys.
