New York Teams

Pairing Mickey Callaway with the Mets to manage after his success coaching so many talented starters to success in Cleveland seems like a brilliant selection aimed at maximizing what should be their greatest strength -- starting pitching. He's a great communicator to boot, with players and media alike.

The Jets are actually making Jay Cutler look ... like, good.

You keep waiting for midnight to strike and Josh McCown to turn into a pumpkin, but the career journeyman continues to exceed expectations. He's ripping apart the Dolphins with two TD passes.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Second TD pass off the day for Jets QB Josh McCown. Post route to Robbie Anderson. With no safety in the middle of the field, the CB has to squeeze the route.

Jets RT Brandon Shell has a neck injury and his return is doubtful. That means backup Brent Qvale has to block Cameron Wake. Uh, oh.

The Jets have cut down on the number of busted coverages this season, but they had one on Jarvis Landry's 4-yard TD catch. There was a mixup between CB Buster Skrine and S Marcus Maye.

Richard Sherman and the Seahawks have arrived. Giants will have work cut out vs. Seattle secondary. They didn't throw a pass over 19 yards last week vs. Broncos. The Seahawks have only allowed 12 pass plays to go for over 20 yards this season.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets OC John Morton said his goal every week to have a balanced attack, but he added that he'll do whatever it takes to win. Today, that means throwing. Josh McCown came out passing and connected three times, including a 29-yard TD to Jermaine Kearse.

As usual, the Jets are standing for the anthem, arms locked. CEO Christopher Johnson joined them as he always does.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Expectation is that RG D.J. Fluker will be able to play barring a setback, per sources. He was late add to injury report and knee is not 100%.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets' defensive line has yet to record a sack, but they're confident they can rattle Jay Cutler and end the slump. Leonard Williams: "He does get flustered. He will let go of the ball when he gets some pressure in his face. That's when he throws interceptions."

Stan Van Gundy, who is refreshingly honest with the media, candidly questioned the Knicks' coaching staff's defensive strategy late in New York's loss to Detroit. Tobias Harris and Reggie Jackson helped fuel Detroit's comeback with several pick and rolls down the stretch. "They both were going well and we were trying to go at (Porzingis)," Van Gundy told reporters. "(He) kills you at one end and for some reason they were playing him on Tobias, I don't know why, but they were, so we went at that pick-and-roll."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Tim Hardaway Jr. was asked if he just felt out of rhythm on Saturday when he missed 12 of 16 shots in a loss to Detroit: "Yeah I missed a couple of easy ones here and there, shots that I normally make. It's just tough to see those not go down," Hardaway Jr. said. "My teammates did a great job of just keeping me in it. Telling me to keep shooting. That's what I'm here for, just be a burst of energy and help out on the floor in any way I can. I didn't get it done tonight." The Knicks as a whole hit just eight of 30 3-point attempts. Jeff Hornacek said the Knicks need to be around 38 percent from three. He didn't place the blame on Hardaway Jr., who said he got the looks he wanted against Detroit. "Yeah. Transition shots, I just have to find ways. It's still a new offense but at the same time I still have to find ways to get to the line, get to the basket a little more, finish when I'm there. Missed a lot of bunnies today I wish I could take back and I definitely could have helped out on that end of the floor."
