First and 10: It ain’t easy being green

The Jets owe the Eagles a debt of gratitude. If it wasn’t for that nightmare of a “Dream Team” in Philly, the spotlight would be a little hotter on that other green team with high pre-season expectations. The Jets are sinking fast after the Patriots handed them a third straight loss on Sunday, and three veteran wide receivers are denying reports that they’ve gone to coach Rex Ryan to complain about offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.

Here’s what else is on tap for Monday:

  • Sunday might be remembered as the beginning of the Tim Tebow era in Denver. Find out why Pat Kirwan thinks the Broncos should use the bye week to make Tebow their starter.
  • Al Davis‘ spirit was alive and well in Houston on Sunday, where the Oakland Raiders notched an emotional upset over the Texans thanks to a last-minute interception in the end zone one day after Davis’ death at age 82.
  • Adrian Peterson rushed for 122 yards and scored three touchdowns in a 34-10 Vikings victory Sunday, but was he the top fantasy player of Week 5? Cast your vote now.
