The Viral Roundup – Pat Attack Edition

The Viral Roundup – Pat Attack Edition
New England tops New York to go to 6-0, Arian Foster suffers another major injury and Winnipeg outguns Minnesota in a wild Sunday affair. Here's the sparkling new world of sports you're waking up to on October 26, 2015.

Did You Hear?

In case you needed reminding, the New England Patriots are a very good football club. The Pats (who came in favoured by a touchdown) improved to 6-0 by beating the AFC East rival Jets 30-23. New York forged a 20-16 lead in the 4th quarter but could not stop Brady and the Patriots who turned things around with TDs snagged by Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola. Gillette Stadium is not an easy place to play in if you’re an opponent visiting in October. New England have won their last 20 home games during the month of October.

Did You See?

If there’s one thing you can count on in this world, it’s that politicans love their impossibly goofy sports based bets. Two U.S. congressmen engaged in one of those wagers over the Mets/Dodgers NLDS series and as a result U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff of California was forced to sing “Meet The Mets” in congress. He’s not particularly enthused about it. Speaking of the Mets, they’ll be facing the Royals tomorrow night in Game 1 of the World Series. Oddsmakers list both teams as -110 options in the Fall Classic.

Did You Know?

- Week 7 was heaven for Fins interim coach Dan Campbell, but absolute hell for Houston Texans fans. Miami, a four point home favourite, crushed Houston 44-26 with the newly installed coach enjoying a 41-0 lead at halftime. Ryan Tannehill tossed 4 TDs for Miami with Jarvis Landry on the receiving end of a pair of those passes. Not only did Houston get smacked down without mercy in the matinee, but star rusher Arian Foster also suffered a torn Achilles tendon in the final quarter.

- Maybe Landry Jones isn’t the caretaker he was made out to be last week. Pittsburgh’s third string QB had an underwhelming starting performance tossing two picks in a 23-13 Steelers loss to Kansas City. (KC was pegged as a three point favourite going in.) The result snaps a five game Chiefs losing streak and Charcandrick West ran for 110 yards and a touchdown in Jaamal Charles’ absence.

- Teddy Bridgewater threw for 316 yards in two touchdowns yesterday to the lead the Vikings to a 28-19 thumping of the Lions. Stefon Diggs caught six passes including one for points as Minnesota improves to 4-2 on the season and Detroit drops to an ugly 1-6 record. 

- We hope you bet the over in last night’s Winnipeg/Minnesota on-ice tilt. The Jets outgunned their southern neighbour 5-4 in a clash that saw Drew Stafford pot a pair for Winnipeg while Zach Parise notched his seventh lamp lighter in a losing cause. Both teams now share a 5-2-1 record in the ultra competitive Central Division.
