The New Jersey Devils beat the Pittsburgh Penguins today, 3-1. In this hockey world, we hate to give the Devil his due, but Martin Brodeur had the NHL highlight of the day, falling all over the place trying to stop a flying puck heading towards his net.

Devils’ Martin Brodeur Makes a Clumsy Save, Falls All Over Himself in Win Over Penguins (Video and GIF)
We are essentially a week from marking a new era in Jets history. Whether or not Greg McElroy gets the ball for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, we have probably seen the end of Mark Sanchez as “The Sanchize”. Mark Sanchez’s ineffectiveness for most of the 2012 season has sealed his fate as it exists.
The major question at this point is, who will Rex Ryan choose? Continue reading
1. Tom Brady Must Throw Interceptions
The turnover game will be a key to winning. Over the past 2 games, Muhammad Wilkerson has been on fire with two forced fumbles, a sack, and a fumble recovery touchdown. Getting pressure on Brady and making him make mistakes will allow the Jets give the offense easier opportunities to score.
Mark Sanchez has played in a ton of big games so far in his career. In the first two years, he did very well in them, including big wins he played well in during the playoffs that he still does not get enough credit for.
Last year, we saw a bit of a regression out of Sanchez in the clutch, as well as fewer big games for him to play.
Now we are at a possible turning point in the Jets-Sanchez relationship. For all intents and purposes, the season will probably be over if they cannot defeat the Rams this Sunday. It will definitely be over if they cannot come back 4 days later and beat the Patriots on Thanksgiving, but without winning the Rams game, the former is probably unwinnable.
Last time the Jets traveled to Seattle to face the Seahawks, it was a different team with Brett Favre at the helm. It was a loss, which ultimately helped keep the ball rolling for a Jets collapse and them missing the playoffs in Favre’s only season in NY.
But the ball most remember from this game is the large snowball DE Shaun Ellis threw at a fan in the crowd. Here is that video:
I was in attendance for Jets-Texans yesterday and got to watch the almost-destruction, almost-miracle, almost-Sanchez-led-comeback, definite-killer-interception in person. Here are a sprinkling of thoughts both on the live experience and on the game itself.
1. First Texans fans sighting
I have seen 3 Texans games so far and this one was the first where there were a noticeable amount of Texans fans there. They were not nearly as overwhelming as the 49ers fans from the week before, but there were some nice pockets of fans around. I guess finally fielding a playoff team and being a decade in has allowed this team to gain some out-of-state fans.
2. This guy made a great shirt
Luckily, we only have to stop at step 1 of that shirt.
