10/3/21 WAS THE BEST DAY TO BE A SPORTS FAN IN A LONG TIME
The upcoming schedules for the Jets and Giants aren’t promising seasons, but their wins, coupled with the Yankees heading into the MLB postseason, gave New York sports fans a taste of winning sports they haven’t felt in a long time. . The Giants and Jets each had very different paths to a 0-3 start this season.
The Jets appeared largely uncompetitive in losses to the Panthers, Patriots and Broncos. Conversely, after taking a slam-dunk loss to the Broncos, the Giants had a real chance of taking two wins already until the Washington Football Team and Falcons both scored game-winning field goals. However, each team took upset wins in Week 4 to avoid disastrous 0-4 starts and while neither season holds much promise, at least October 3, 2021 was a memorable day for NY fans bringing some luck.
