Close night for NY football

It seemed that all hope was lost for NY to make it to the playoffs. Both teams had done very badly in the last three weeks. The Jets had a two game losing streak until last week but the victory was more contributed the careless mistakes made by the Bills rather than the Jets actually playing well. The Giants were on a three game loosing streak. They were making basic mistakes unheard of for the Giants.

The Jets lost badly to the Seahawks 3 to 13 making their record 9 and 6. They were in a three way tie for the division with the Patriots and the Dolphins and both teams won their games so the chances of the Jets making it to the playoffs is slim to nil. It's really sad because I had very high hopes when the Jets signed Bret Farve as their quarterback but as I have seen he has not delivered.

The Giants were lucky to still have their division thanks to the Cowboys losing their game last week. Last night it seemed that the Giants' up hill climb was going to get worse when the Panthers were leading 28 to 20. It wasn't until the last five minutes of the game that the Giants were able to tie up the game and hold up the Panthers offense to bring the game into over time. The Giants were on their third attempt at a first down and it seemed that the Panthers were going to get the ball until Derrick Ward was able to rush the ball to the two yard line. Then Brandon Jacobs was able to power through for the touchdown. The Giants had officially clinched their division last night and hopefully the Giants have gotten their act together and can once again head to playoffs and then the Super Bowl.
