🏈Jets: The Jets beat the Green Bay Packers 23–14 in preseason action on Saturday, and Zach Wilson’s nearly perfect performance has fans buzzin’. The BYU grad and 2021 No. 2 overall draft pick completed 9 of 11 passes with two touchdowns. He read the field quickly and threw even quicker, made solid decisions, and nailed receivers. Talk dirty to us.

  • Especially after learning that defensive end Carl Lawson — a big-name free agent signed in the offseason — will be out this season after rupturing his achilles on Thursday, Wilson’s performance was exactly what Jets fans needed to turn that frown upside down. 

🏀Liberty: The Liberty fell 86–83 in a tight game against the LA Sparks yesterday, marking the fifth loss in the Libs’ last six games. With just under a month left in the regular season, the No. 7 Liberty are fighting hard to hang onto a top-eight spot to make it to the playoffs. Now or never. 

⚾️MLB: The Mets beat the LA Dodgers 7–2 yesterday, earning their only win in the teams’ four-game series. Meanwhile, after three straight wins over the Minnesota Twins, the Yankees’ final game of the series was postponed due to weather. Saving their tears for another day.
