New York G at Washington FT
Here we are, in year two of the "Football Team" era, and I am here for it. I think that, rather than try to go through an exhaustive search to find a new name for the team, a name that has no chance of pleasing everyone (especially the devotees of racist cosplay), they should just embrace "Football Team." Have fun with it. Enjoy it. Wear it as a badge of honour.
I look at it this way: In music, any band can call itself the band, but only one can call itself "The Band," am I right?
As for tonight's game, we have a matchup of division rivals both looking to post their first win of the season. New York got trounced at home by Denver, while Washington lost a game to The Bolts that was not a close as the score would lead you to believe. For Washington, "Fitzmagic" has been shelved before it could cast a single spell. Taylor Heinicke has proven to be more than capable of running the offense, the key to which is ball control and ball security. New York was not able to accomplish much against a solid Denver defense, so facing Washington's formidable defensive front should prove to be a daunting task. Daniel Jones needs to start stringing together some solid performances, or the team might start thinking about moving on. I think that would be a mistake. The talent is clearly there. Perhaps coaching is the issue. At any rate, expect a low-scoring affair in which special teams will be a huge factor, and one or two turnovers either way might decide things.
