Winless New York Jets Host the Struggling Arizona Cardinals

Now that the New York Jets know that Sunday’s Week 5 game against the Arizona Cardinals is still on, the matchup still represents an uphill climb back to respectability.

The Cardinals delayed their trip to the east coast for the game when they heard the report that a Jets player had reportedly tested positive for COVID-19. That turned out to be a false positive, and the Cardinals boarded their flight, albeit later than originally planned.

“As now, it’s business as usual,” coach Kliff Kingsbury told Arizona media Friday after practice. “We’re heading out today and getting ready to play on Sunday until told otherwise.”

The Cardinals come into the game looking to snap a two-game losing streak. They started the season with two impressive victories, and the proverbial thought was that they were turning the corner in their own rebuilding process. 

“Whatever happens, happens,” Cardinals tackle D.J. Humphries told Arizona

Cubs clinch NL Central; Brewers, Cardinals and Reds coming down to last day of MLB regular season

A Kris Bryant grand slam in the top of the third Saturday night put the Cubs up, 5-2, and it looked like they might be able to take care of business on their own. Instead, the White Sox stormed back with a funky bottom of the fourth — highlighted by Jose Abreu’s clutch, bases-clearing double — and went on to victory over their cross-town rivals. 

Still, the Cubs’ magic number was one and the Cardinals loss at home to the Brewers did the trick. The Cubs are the 2020 NL Central champions. It’s their sixth Central title and third in the last five seasons. 

There wasn’t a ton of drama here after the Cubs won and the Cardinals lost (one of their two games) on Friday. The question was more when than if after that. The real drama in the NL Central heads into the (maybe!) last day of

Cubs clinch NL Central Division as Cardinals lose to Brewers

While the Cubs were engaged in a back-and forth battle against the White Sox on Saturday, the Brewers did them a favor.

The Cubs clinched the NL Central title when Milwaukee beat St. Louis 3-0 on Saturday. The Cubs will head into the playoffs with the No. 3 seed in the National League and home field advantage through the best-of-three Wild Card Series.

“When you start reaching some of your goals,” Cubs manager David Ross said before the game, “it’s a little badge of honor that you get when you put in the work and are able to reap the rewards on the back end of the season. But the way I feel about this group would not change whether we win the division or not. I’m really proud of these guys.”

When the Cubs clinched a playoff berth earlier this week, they ensured that for the fifth time in

Brian Mitchell says a fast start is key for Washington against the Cardinals

B-Mitch says a fast start is key for Washington against the Cardinals originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Though the Washington Football Team’s Week 1 win over the Philadelphia Eagles was memorable and impressive, the NFL is a “what have you done for me lately” business. That means come Sunday, all that will matter is how the team performs against the Arizona Cardinals.

Arizona itself is coming off an impressive win against the defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers and houses a formidable defense and a talented offense led by quarterback Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins. Week 2 will be anything but easy.

For Washington to leave the desert 2-0, former player and current NBC Sports Washington analyst Brian Mitchell believes three things must happen.

The first relates to the Burgundy and Gold’s talented defensive front. Receiving a lot of hype prior to the season, the unit delivered in Week
