Did you spend today curled up in a ball of blankets and sandwiches? Did you brave the elements and crunch your way over the frozen rain painted across the sidewalks? I did both. It was a good day.
You know how you can ruin this good day? By watching the Jets play football on a Saturday night.
That’s right. We’ve reached the part of the calendar when college football no longer owns Saturdays, which means the NFL must grab at any and every available chance to shove its nose-diving product down our collective throats.
Tonight’s game is between the Jets and the Dolphins. The Dolphins just lost their franchise quarterback, Ryan Tannehill, to an injury last week, and he’s out for this one.
It doesn’t much matter, though: the Jets are intentionally starting Bryce Petty. They nearly lost to the woeful 49ers last week. They are miserable to highest degree, and you should not watch this game under any circumstances. If you need alternatives, please refer to this list I put together on Thursday night.
If you must, against all better judgement, watch this game, here’s how you can do it:
