Look at the state of New York through the first 4 games of the season.

Football fans from across the Empire State – and certain areas of New Jersey, Connecticut and Canada – have reason to enjoy watching their teams during the first month of the NFL season. The three franchises that have spent most of the new millennium avoiding controversy, and often basking in confusion, are doing well nearly a quarter of the way through the 2022 season.

Of course the Buffalo Bills were the favorite championship contenders to start the season, but they lost in swamp-like conditions a week ago in Miami, and had to fight by way of another road game into Sunday. Japan. The New York Giants lost at home to their Dallas Cowboys rivals last week, and the New York Jets fell early to 2021 AFC Champion Cincinnati Bengals and were never heard from again.

All three recovered with tough wins in Week 4. Even with all of their injury problems, the Bills are arguably NFL class, and the Jets and Giants showed that despite their having being able to win ugly, maybe that’s a necessity in an NFL with most coaches throwing gauze and bandages at players and sprinting around the locker room with coaches trying to keep as much of them on the field the better.

Week 4 of the 2022 season proved to be a win for all the teams representing New York.

No midfield, no problem for G-Men

Concussion protocol was on everyone’s mind this week 11 days after Tua Tagovailoa and his back injury/head injury/fencing reaction. So when Tyrod Taylor was forced into action then MetLife Stadium Flipping Daniel Jones’ ankles, Giants and Chicago Bears fans are watching to see how well he will play, more importantly eyes ready to make sure his helmet is worn. shoot if at any time he sees all the boys, as he did with the Giants up five points almost halfway through the fourth quarter. Taylor made a brace from the Bears near the touchline and was forced out of the game. He ended up jogging to the locker room after he was checked in in the blue tent. This forced Jones back into the center, because in today’s NFL it’s more profitable to have an extra line-up or special team player on the active roster than a third-string quarterback.

Jones ended the game for the Giants by doing almost nothing possible for an NFL starting quarterback. After the Taylor injury, Jones actually didn’t line up at midfield for the rest of the trip. The Giants run The Wildcat and kick a target for eight points. Then, once the ball was in his hand, all he did was push it away. With the Bears somehow hitting a new low with their ball in possession with the world’s worst 3rd and 2nd play and a muffled hit, the Giants are currently 3-1. .

Zach Wilson leads the Jets to .500

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Jets both lost 1-2 in their Week 4 games. The Steelers are addressing staffing shortfalls caused by the injury breach of their best player – TJ Watt.

Injury news for the Jets was much more positive in Week 4. Their 2021 overall No 2 pick – Zach Wilson – is back on the field after suffering an injury in the opening game of pre-season. He threw two picks in the game, even though the second pick wasn’t his fault.

The Steelers made their own change in midfield, starting Mitchell Trubisky and putting their first pick of 2022 – Kenny Pickett – in the back of center in front of passionate cheers from the audience. home. When the Steelers scored a quick goal after the Jets’ second pick, you’d think 2016’s Ben Roethlisberger was back on the field according to the crowd’s reaction.

Pickett made Steeler Nation happy, but his three failings doubled into interceptions, showing a lot of room for improvement. It makes sense for a young quarterback to have a lot to learn in the NFL, but doing it behind a foam Steelers attack could be a problem leading to Mike Tomlin’s first season being lost on the reins. head coach.

On the Jets side, no receivers averaged less than 14.8 yards per reception on Sunday, with three receivers averaging 17 or so. Corey Davis has the lowest point average, but leads the team in receptions, and is there for the big games when Wilson needs him.

With Wilson absent for the first three weeks, there’s every reason to believe the Jets will need maximum luck to start this season 1-3. Instead, they were one of eight AFC teams with a score of 2-2 to four weeks – the most competitive of the two games. That’s almost worthy of one of the fascinating celebrations in the MLB playoffs.

The bill is at the top, just like everyone thinks they will

The people of New York consider Bills to be part of New York, of course not. They were quick to remind Long Island and Northern New Jersey that they didn’t live in five counties, and that Staten Island was treated like a cousin who had only come to ask for money.

That’s why I always like to remind everyone from the Big Apple that – technically – the only NFL team to play in New York is the Buffalo Bills. I don’t want to hear that MetLife Stadium is right outside the Lincoln Tunnel. You all know well and well that you’ll have something to say to someone from East Rutherford, NJ, who claims New York.

So, the New York team entered this season with the highest expectations in more than 30 years. They outlast them by two weeks, but being able to throw more than 60 degrees when it’s 100 degrees humidity on a field in South Florida isn’t the best idea.

They continued to face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4, and lost 20-3 in the second half. However, for those whose Sundays are consumed by NFL RedZone, there’s a reason it might feel like you haven’t seen much of Lamar Jackson in two hours. Ravens attack is ineffective for most of the game.

The Ravens only combined two driveways for a total of 40 yards for the entire game, but that 90+ yard drive in the fourth inning looks set to give them the win, especially after the 3rd and 12th. by Jackson. for the first time down. Well, the Ravens made a 4th-place touchdown and goal from the two-yard line, instead of a goal to make it three and when pressured, Jackson threw the ball out his back foot to intercept.

That’s when the Bills do what champions do, and why their clan needs to rally around them even when their fans jump across the tables and one is even ready to cover themselves in tomato sauce and mustard. With just over four minutes of the game left, the Bills took to the field, ate up all the time and won the goal-scoring game on the field, giving them 20 unanswered points for the day.
