The Jets are coming off a rollicking come from behind upset win over the Cincinnati Bengals last Sunday. Erstwhile backup quarterback Mike White came through with a performance for the ages, throwing for more than 400 yards in the win. For his efforts White got his jersey installed at the Pro Football Hall of Fame and earned AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors. The White miracle performance was almost too good to be believed. Tonight White and the Jets get the opportunity to begin to prove the doubters wrong. We’ll see if the team and the quarterback have another miracle in them.
The Colts are coming off a devastating overtime loss to their division rivals, the Tennessee Titans, last Sunday. The loss all but ended any hopes for a Colts division title this year. Such an emotional letdown for a Colts team that came so close to knocking off the Titans and climbing back into the divisional race could be difficult to recover from on a short week. On the other hand, the Colts could come out breathing fire, angry at blowing their chance and eager to exact revenge against the Jets.
It’s the New York Jets and the Indianapolis Colts today at 8:15 pm EDT on Thursday Night Football. Please leave your comments in the section cleverly marked “comments” below. Enjoy the game everybody.
