Bill O’Brien not ready to declare Brock Osweiler his 2017 starter

Texans coach Bill O’Brien benched Brock Osweiler this year, and he only got his job back when the backup got a concussion. So it makes sense that O’Brien isn’t ready to declare Osweiler his starter for next season. Via┬áSarah Barshop of ESPN.com, O’Brien stalled when asked about his quarterback’s┬ástatus Monday. “Before I talk about those…

Jets roll over sloppy Bills to end season with a win

From the fake spike to the buttfumble, the Jets have been on the wrong end of some embarrassing plays over the years. They got to feel how the other side lives on Sunday afternoon against the Bills. After a Nick Folk field goal made the score 23-3 with 3:21 left to play, Folk’s kickoff landed…

Jets up 10-3 at halftime

When the Jets faced the Bills in Week 17 last season, they were in position to clinch a playoff berth with a win but they lost 22-17 thanks in large part to three Ryan Fitzpatrick interceptions. The Jets have nothing on the line this Sunday and the results have been better thus far. Fitzpatrick hasn’t…

What the rookie quarterbacks have (and haven’t) done this season

It’s Week 17, and teams out of playoff contention with rookie quarterbacks waiting in the wings might as well get them game experience. At least you’d think they would. The Jets have been out of playoff contention since before the clocks changed. Christian Hackenberg says he’s ready, but Ryan Fitzpatrick will start this weekend’s season…

Hackenberg says he’s ready, but Jets probably won’t play him

The Jets will start Ryan Fitzpatrick on Sunday, a somewhat odd decision given that Fitzpatrick almost certainly won’t be on the team next year, while second-round rookie quarterback Christian Hackenberg could get some valuable game experience that could help the franchise for the future. Hackenberg says he can accept coach Todd Bowles’ decision to start…

PFT’s Week 17 picks

MDS has tripled his lead in the season picks contest, moving from a one-game lead to a three-game lead. In the final week of the season, we coincidentally disagree on three games. A sweep for me results in a tie. Which would sort of stink. But not as bad as losing would. Last week, MDS…

Ryan Fitzpatrick recognizes the obvious realities of his season

The first year of the partnership between the Jets and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was a successful one and the two sides did an extended negotiating dance over the offseason to find a contract that both sides could agree to for a second run. It didn’t go nearly as well. The Jets are 4-11 and 2-8…

Patriots rolling over Jets at halftime

After a health scare on Friday, Jets coach Todd Bowles was feeling well enough to join the team in New England for Saturday’s game against the Patriots. Nothing he’s seen is likely to make him feel any better about his football team, though. The Jets have moved to -22 in turnover differential by turning the…

Bryce Petty hurt, Patriots leading 13-0

If things keep going the same way in New England, Patriots coach Bill Belichick may be doing some caroling come the third quarter. The Patriots are up 13-0 in the second quarter after Stephen Gostkowski’s second field goal of the afternoon. The score was set up by the second Jets turnover of the afternoon. Running…

Bowles: Jets likely “getting killed” if Christian Hackenberg plays

The Jets have already said that Bryce Petty is sufficiently recovered from his chest bruise to play tomorrow, and that veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick will continue to back him up. But even as he admitted it was “possible” that rookie Christian Hackenberg might be active and get a uniform for the first time this season, Jets…

Jets hopeful Bryce Petty can play through chest bruise

The Jets may not have to give Christian Hackenberg a uniform this year after all. Via Rich Cimini of ESPN.com, tests on Jets quarterback Bryce Petty revealed no damage to his lungs, and they’re hopeful the bruised chest he suffered yesterday won’t keep him off the field Saturday against the Patriots. Petty wasn’t able to…
