Travel distances can have a slight effect on team fortunes. This season, Oakland, Seattle, and the Chargers each travel about 30,000 round trip miles. At the other end of the spectrum are Carolina, Atlanta, Cincinnati, and the Jets who each travel fewer than 10,000 miles.

The NFL has done a much better job evening out the pain with the schedule this year. Indianapolis has the worst net rest differential with a net of 11 less days of rest than their opponents and 3 games vs. opponents coming off their byes. Last season the Giants had -22 days with 4 opponents coming off byes.

Jets daily draft nugget: One of the biggest heartbreaks occurred in 1997, when they owned the No. 1 overall pick and Peyton Manning decided to stay in school. Citing league rules, Bill Parcells never made an effort to sway Manning into turning pro, but he certainly could've sent a message through his father, Archie. Parcells wound up trading down twice, picking LB James Farrior with the eighth pick. He was a solid player (two Pro Bowls with the Steelers), but Parcells passed on two future Hall-of-Fame tackles — Orlando Pace (first) and Walter Jones (sixth).

About the passed ball that led to one of the two unearned runs CC Sabathia allowed, the pitcher took the blame. "My fault, my mistake, we got crossed up." He said he saw the sign he wanted to see instead of what Gary Sanchez actually put down.

On CC Sabathia's 71-pitch outing, in which he didn't allow an earned run, Aaron Boone said: "He gave us what we needed." The Yankees weren't going to work him much beyond 70 or 80 pitches tonight, Boone added.

A late Aaron Judge insurance home run proved necessary for the Yankees. It came a half inning before the Blue Jays threatened with a rally in the eighth. After limiting Toronto to one run in that inning, the Yankees opened the series with a 4-3 win Thursday night in the Bronx. Aroldis Chapman was lights out in the ninth, striking out the side. Giancarlo Stanton, who had been struggling at home, snapped a 0-for-15 hitting slump when he reached on an infield single. He also avoided striking out for the first time in four games. It's the second strikeout-free game he's had at home this season.
