Aaron Rodgers Finishes Year Strong At Practice

Wednesday, January 17, 7:36 PM

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) lead the way during "competition" periods of the team's late-season practices. Up to that point, Rodgers have been limited to scout-team work, but he was moving so well on his surgically repaired Achilles that coaches decided to let him cook to close out the year. "It's like watching Picasso paint," tackle Mekhi Becton said after one of the practices. Rodgers was in total command during the sessions, and players said the future Hall of Famer was so into it that it seemed like he was trying to make up for lost time. "[I] proved I can maybe still play a little bit," Rodgers said, grinning. At the very least, it gives the Jets hope that the 40-year-old can play closer to his 2021 MVP level than what he showed in his final season in Green Bay in 2022. The Jets offensive line will certainly need to be better -- they allowed 64 sacks in 2023.

Mac Jones Benched For Bailey Zappe In Week 12

Sunday, November 26, 2:42 PM

New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones was benched and replaced by Bailey Zappe during halftime of Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Jones had completed 12 of 21 passes for 89 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions at the time of his departure. He now has a horrendous ratio of 10 touchdowns to 12 interceptions this season. He also fumbled on Sunday, but it was recovered by New England. Week 12 marks the fourth time this season that Jones has been benched for Zappe. It last happened in Week 10 when Bill Belichick made the switch ahead of a decisive fourth-quarter drive versus the Colts. In that scenario, Zappe threw a game-ending interception. Zappe doesn't represent a major drop-off from Jones, so Demario Douglas, Rhamondre Stevenson, and Hunter Henry should continue to warrant fantasy consideration.
