Was this the Most Crushing Weekend Ever for NFL Fans in NY? (PICS)
What a crazy ride it's been for NFL fans in New York already, and we only wrapped up week number 1!
I can't remember a time when all three teams, the Bills, Jets, and Giants, came into a season with higher expectations. Unfortunately for Giant fans, their team barely even showed up on Sunday night as the G Men were thumped against the Cowboys early, and often, and many fans headed for the exits before halftime in a game they would ultimately lose 40 zip.
For fans of the Jets and Bills, anticipation and excitement about the new season were sky-high, but Jet fans were left speechless when off-season acquisition Aaron Rodgers left the game after just 3 plays with an apparent Achilles injury.
Playing with a backup quarterback against Josh Allen and a vaunted Bills offense, the Jets D turned Allen over 4 times en route to a 22-16 overtime victory that left Jet fans thrilled about the win, but cautiously optimistic about the remainder of the season without their Hall of Fame QB.
The OT loss to a division rival with a backup QB surely stings, but worse, for Bills fans, their superhero, Josh Allen, looked average. Actually, he looked worse than average - throwing three picks and fumbling late in the game which led to a Jets game-tying score.
So here we are on Tuesday morning and fans of all three teams are scratching their heads attempting to wrap their head around what went down in a wild opening weekend of NFL games at Met Life Stadium.
