The Jets (3-7) benched Ryan Fitzpatrick for the second time this season, opting to give second year player Bryce Petty (19-for-32, 163 yards, TD, INT) his first National Football League start.
The New Orleans Saints thought they had the game won. "Hate to see a game like that come down to a simple play". It's something you work on all the time. Please be fully informed regarding the risks and costs associated with trading the financial markets, it is one of the riskiest investment forms possible.
"You are always anxious", Kubiak said. "It's a tough way to lose at the end right there", Payton said. The latter-day Saints couldn't, either, although coach Sean Peyton, trying to get past his conniption fit, said the "sky is not falling today". We will never know, but we can all mostly look like this kid if we think he might have stepped out.
"Greatest finish I've even been a part of, " Von Miller, wearing a towel and a grin you could pour on waffles, told me afterward as he emerged from the shower. "I was looking at the same ones you were looking at".

The Denver Broncos broke the New Orleans Saints' hearts on Sunday afternoon. Drew Brees completed 28 of 39 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Saints. But their 25 points and third-down success (11-of-19) will obscure another disappointing outing by Trevor Siemian, who tossed two interceptions and couldn't capitalize on Brees' early missteps. Siemian's left (non-throwing) shoulder injury combined with a string of inconsistent play had ratcheted up calls for rookie Paxton Lynch to take over. They are an extra point away from beating Denver at home at this point and really putting themselves in a good position in the NFC South (the Panthers and Falcons have both essentially lost at this point). The Saints lost a game in the most improbable way imaginable to the Broncos.
The Broncos were in control for the first 29 minutes of the game. We only converted 4 of 9, so they kind of flipped the script.it all came down to time of possession. The second of Stewart's two interception set up a 50-yard field goal by Brandon McManus. The Eagles' suffocating first half, led by an active front seven and big days from Malcolm Jenkins and Leodis McKelvin, among others, helped ground the risky Falcons.
