“Baby, even the losers get lucky sometimes. Even the losers keep a little bit of pride. They get lucky sometimes.” The Jets are 2-2 with Josh McCown running the show, Bryce Petty in limbo and Christian Hackenberg still looking for the handle on his opportunity to show something. Can it sustain itself? Will we see one or both of the younger guys start at some point this year? Is the Jets’ quarterback of the future on their roster? Going with no, yes, no on those three questions, but in the meantime — and in the absence of confidence — I do hope Jets fans are enjoying watching their team win. Yeah, I know you want a high draft pick to get your hands on one of those 2018 rookie quarterbacks.

Rookie kicker Jake Elliott continued his strong play one week after kicking a franchise-record 61-yard field goal to defeat the New York Giants. Elliott, who connected on a 53-yarder against the Chargers, has made six field goals in a row.
The banged-up Cardinals will be missing left tackle D.J. Humphries, who injured a knee in the first quarter of the season opener.
“He reinjured (his knee),” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told reporters during his Monday press conference. “There’s another slight little tear when we were in pads last week.”
The Cardinals are also without outside linebacker Markus Golden for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.
