Bantering Points: 10/1/17

News and notes for Sunday, October 1st, 2017

Sunday Funday. Football. The Jets will do their best to mess up their tank and get back to .500 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Giants will try their best to balance not going 0-4 with not letting Odell Beckham Jr. embarrass their entire franchise, which has been a struggle as of late. The Patriots will cruise to 3-1 with the Carolina Panthers being the latest victim in the Blitz For Six™. There's nothing going on in Rangerstown, so this intro is the best I could come up with.
