Monday night, New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso had just hit his 18th home run of the season. He was rounding 3rd base and as he faced his teammates in the dugout he began to do an imitation of a Pete Towsend guitar windmill. Alonso was indicating to his fellow Amazin's that they were rockin'. Pete Alonso likes to have fun and he's not afraid to show it. Following his second Home Run Derby Championship, the young first baseman is blossoming into a star. But is Pete Alonso one of the Top 5 Sports Stars in the Empire State, I don't think so. Let's take a look.
Josh Brown missed a 48-yard field goal that would have extended the game, and for the third time this season the New York Giants let another double-digit, fourth quarter lead slip away, allowing the crosstown Jets to score the game's final 13 points and pull-off a 23-20 overtime win in a NY-NY battle at MetLife Stadium.
Chris Ivory rushed for 146 yards and a score, while Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two touchdowns and ran for another as the New York Jets knocked off Washington 34-20 at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, improving to 4-1 on the season.
When one travels, you try to be as comfortable as you possibly can be. You pack things that remind you of home, and hope you can find things where you are staying that will make you feel comfortable. The New York Jets took this to a whole new level. They packed at least 350 rolls of toilet paper to bring with them to London this weekend.
The New York Jets let Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles race out to a 24-0 lead before deciding to show up. But, the Jets' first loss hinged on two terrible plays - a boneheaded lateral-turned-fumble in the first half, and a bad penalty in the final minutes that prevented a final possession for the offense.
Todd Bowles probably couldn't have asked for a better head coaching debut. The defensive minded rookie coach saw his New York Jets defense force five turnovers, and his offense score four touchdowns in a home opening 31-10 win over the Browns.
