Thursday night football thread: Brett Rypien vs. Sam Darnold

Tonight is a great opportunity to do anything besides watch

The NFL returns, and what better way to follow up a Patrick Mahomes versus Lamar Jackson matchup than a Brett Rypien versus Sam Darnold quarterback battle? If the New York Jets are going to win a game this season, it’ll be tonight. If they can’t, Adam Gase might as well start packing his bags. Gase should start packing anyway, but that’s an entirely different conversation.

The winless Broncos travel to MetLife Stadium to face the winless Jets. Something has to give! The line on this game is a pick ‘em, and the over-under is 41.5. As easy as it is to continue to pile on about this potential terrible matchup, The Titans organization reported 11 positive COVID tests this week, and that has caused their game against the Steelers for Week 4 to be postponed. We’re fortunate that there has only been one outbreak so far, so cherish football while it’s still here.

If you know what’s going to happen tonight, I’ll take the numbers to the next lottery.
