The Viral Roundup – Jet Powered Edition
The Jets feast on Indy turnovers, multiple NFL clubs are doing with QB health problems and the United States have determined who will be behind their bench for the World Cup of Hockey. Here's the minty fresh world of sports you're waking up to on September 22, 2015.

Did You Hear?

The Indianapolis Colts were in the mood to give and the New York Jets were happy to take. The Jets (a 6.5 point road underdog) feasted on five Colts turnovers in a 20-7 Monday Night Football victory where Darrelle Revis recovered two fumbles and scored a pick. Andrew Luck had another rough outing, this time with three interceptions over 60 minutes. Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for six fewer yards than Luck, but exited with 2 TDs and one INT. New York will aim to go 3-0 on Sunday while hosting the Eagles and the Colts look for W number one in Tennessee.

Did You See?

UFC 192 is just around the corner and that means hype videos for the card will be plentiful until October 3. The MMA giant has released a Daniel Cormier mini-profile clip that’s definitely worth a watch and we have the video plastered below for your convenience. By the way, Cormier is currently listed as a -375 favourite to retain his light heavyweight title against challenger Alexander Gustafsson.

Did You Know?

- The Dallas Cowboys have gotten on some moderately good news on the status of Tony Romo. It appears the QB will not require surgery for his collarbone. The current prognosis has the Cowboys pivot back in approximately eight weeks. The pressure’s now on backup Brandon Weeden to put in strong performances in Romo’s absence. Dallas are currently listed as a 1.5 point home underdog for their Week 3 clash against the Atlanta Falcons.

- Elsewhere in troubling injury talk, New Orleans may be bracing for life without Drew Brees. The Saints QB is dealing with a shoulder ailment that is very serious or just a minor obstacle depending on which source you talk to. ESPN’s Ed Werder says he’s spoken with sources that consider the injury to be not that serious. Meanwhile, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport says his sources indicate that Brees could potentially miss several weeks of play.

- Jay Cutler will be out of the lineup for this week’s game in Seattle. The Bears starting QB is out for (at least) two weeks with a hamstring injury and that places Jimmy Clausen in the working pivot spot. Both the Seahawks and Bears are winless to start the season.

- USA Hockey have unveiled their coach for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey. John Tortorella has been tapped to guide the United States at next year’s international tournament. Tortorella hasn’t coached in the National Hockey League since 2014, but his resume does include a Stanley Cup victory as the bench boss of the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2014. The World Cup is scheduled to make its return next September.
