The Stack is here today with plenty to talk about. October playoff baseball is alive and well. We have NFL power rankings to get to as well as other interesting thoughts so let’s get right to it and see what made “the stack” for today, Tuesday, October 9:
Texans hang on to beat Jets
Most people, including myself thought this game would be a blowout. After the Texans took the ball down the field and scored on the opening possession, it looked that way. But the Jets played like their backs were against the wall (they are) and almost came away with a big upset win. Mark Sanchez threw a pick off of his tight end’s hands that was picked with just under two minutes to go, all but sealing the Jets fate. Arian Foster was amazing, rushing for 152 yards and a touchdown. But the star of the game was defensive end J.J. Watt. Three pass deflections, a sack, the man does it all. He is thee best defensive player in the NFL hands down and the Texans are the best team in the NFL regardless if they struggled a little bit against the Jets.
