World Series

After St. Louis Cardinal Albert Pujols’
legendary Game 3 performance, the Texas Rangers were looking for a spark to even up the series. Pujols’ three home runs in Game 3 helped St. Louis dominate the Rangers 16-7. So in Game 4, the Rangers needed to reestablish its pitching support if it had any hope of getting back momentum. Pitcher Derek Holland heard that message loud and clear by holding the Cardinals to only two hits over 8 1/3 innings. The 25-year-old had seven strikeouts to aid his 4-0 shuout. The series is tied at 2-2, with Cardinals pitching ace Chris Carpenter on the mound in Game 5.


Denver Broncos vs. Miami Dolphins

Tim Tebow doesn’t play the position like a conventional quarterback, but the guy wins football games. For three quarters, Tebow looked pretty ordinary and fell behind 15-0 to the winless Miami Dolphins in the fourth quarter. But just as it looked grim for the Denver Broncos, Tebow lead his team to two touchdowns and a two point conversion, pushing the game into overtime. Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore gave up a costly fumble, giving the Broncos good field position for a game-winning field goal. Kicker Matt Prater completed Tebow’s comeback to give Denver the 18-15 victory. While accuracy problems still continue to haunt the former Florida Gator, Tebow has heart and competitive spirit which makes him an instant favorite to teammates and fans alike.

NY Jets vs San Diego Chargers

Plaxico Burress has been criticized for dropping balls and not being in tune with the Jets’ offense to start the season. He had only caught two touchdowns prior to the Jets’
matchup with the Chargers. But finally Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez decided to use Burress as a red zone target. Every time New York was in the red zone, Burress was the No. 1 option, resulting in three touchdowns grabs. As Sanchez got stronger, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers faded in the fourth quarter, throwing two costly interceptions. The Jets won 27-21 and have some much needed confidence heading into its bye week to prepare for games with Buffalo and New England.
