Power Rankings: Canadiens climb back to No. 1

The Canadiens are clicking, Rick Nash is doing the dirty work for the No. 2 Rangers and the Blackhawks slip to No. 3. Can Scott Darling hold Chicago's fort until Corey Crawford returns?

Now

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

The Dodgers are "aggressively" checking out alternatives at third base in case free agent Justin Turner goes elsewhere, an MLB source said. Turner is still the team's No. 1 option, but the Dodgers are being careful to protect themselves in case things fail to work out. Luis Valbuena is the second best 3B option on the free agent market this winter, while Todd Frazier and Yangervis Solarte are among the top trade options at the position.

The Jets should give refunds to the fans that came out to watch this slop. They trail at half, 24-3, a sorry display of ineptitude on both sides of the ball. Dumb penalties, busted coverages, bad blocking, etc. Todd Bowles should play Bryce Petty in the second half. It can't get any worse.

Dwayne Allen's three TDs in the first half are two more than all Jets tight ends have had since the start of last season.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Colts TE Dwayne Allen is now up to three touchdowns against the Jets. The first two were the easiest of his career. The third one was a little more challenging because Allen was actually covered. Indy's up 24-3

The Jets cut the Colts' lead to 14-3, but even that was tarnished. They had a first down at the Colts' 13, but went backward in the red zone. RT Breno Giacomini was flagged for unnecessary roughness. That makes three personal fouls. Total lack of discipline.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets played with poor defensive eye discipline and lacked communication in the secondary during the first quarter. That created two easy TD passes from Andrew Luck to Dwayne Allen. A TE delay/throwback and a 7 (corner) route. Colts lead 14-0 at the start of the second quarter.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

Russell Westbrook picks up his sixth straight triple-double, and 11th of the season: 15-11-10 with 6:19 left in the third quarter.

The Jets aren't getting beat physically, they're getting beat mentally. That falls on Todd Bowles. Missed blocked, busted coverages, you name it.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets already are getting booed by the sparse crowd -- and deservedly so. The offense has two three-and-outs and the defense looks lost. Not a good look for Todd Bowles. This team is not ready to play.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

Westbrook with 5 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists at halftime in Atlanta. He's struggling shooting, hitting just 1-7, but the Thunder still lead the Hawks 55-54.

Kevin Seifert NFL Nation 

Plenty of time remaining in this game, but so far, the Jets have put forth the kind of effort tonight that gets coaches fired. Is it possible that the Todd Bowles regime has crashed and burned already?

Monday Night Football about to kick off (ESPN, 8:30 p.m. ET). The ViewFromVegas is the New York Jets are now 1.5-point home favorites over the Indianapolis Colts at the Westgate SuperBook, South Point and MGM books here in Las Vegas (though NYJ -1 is still the most common line) after the Colts opened as short road faves last week. The over/under is 48.5 points.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets had a moment of silence to honor the memory of Joe McKnight, who was fatally shot last week on New Orleans.
