If you thought the US Presidential debate was a shit show, wait til you get a load of what’s on Turds-Day night as the NY Jets host the Denver Broncos.
Both teams are 0-3 in what might be known as the ‘Tank for Trevor Bowl’.
Both teams are a mess right now, with injuries riddling so bad, they would likely lose to a CFL team.
The Broncos have tried this season, but losing key players in a difficult division will most likely doom their season.
The Jets have to worry about Adam Gase, as he has a herpes like affect on the whole New York franchise.

Brett Rypien will be making his first NFL start in a ‘what the hell’ kind of decision to start the week. The nephew of the great Canadian QB Mark Rypien will have one of the easiest starts to his career, facing a Jets team that gives up more than an meth head in a police confession.
Rypien took over for Driskell last week in their beating by the Bucs, so he has at least some experience facing a tough D.
Not sure how tough this Jets defence will be in comparison.
Pack your bags Adam, you are the weakest link. Goodbye. This could be the last game for the head coach as fans are calling for him to be beheaded, fed to dogs, then the remains dumped in the East River.
If this is the last game for Gase, you can imagine that he will want to do everything in his power to put on a good showing at home.
Le’Veon Bell has been a ghost this season, and you wonder if it’s to get out of New York, or just to slink his career off to the shadows.
With the kind of money he’s been paid, you would think he would show a bit more gumption.
Thursday night games are always a bit of letdown, as teams are coming off of a short week only to jump in the saddle again. Covid 19 has made TNF even worse, as players are having to go through even more testing, made even worse by the Titans spreading germs all over the league.
The Broncos don’t have a lot of pressure here. Sure, they’re 0-3, but there’s not a lot you can do with a third string QB and loads of your D aching on the sidelines.
All of the pressure is on the Jets to succeed, which given the track record of their head coach could be a bridge too far.
This game will be low scoring, no caring, and be uglier than Joe Biden throwing hate on primetime TV.
The line was originally -3 for the Broncos which made me want to pick the Jets to cover, but I think that the 24 year old Rypien will be looking to prove his name in this one.
