New York Jets wide receiver Corey Davis will have core muscle surgery Tuesday and will miss the rest of the season. Davis left the Jets' 33-18 loss to Philadelphia early in the fourth quarter Sunday with what the team announced was a groin injury. Coach Robert Saleh announced Monday that Davis will have surgery, ending a disappointing first season with the Jets.
The Philadelphia Eagles have already won two more games than last season and are in the middle of the playoff race under rookie coach Nick Sirianni. “I think, obviously, I would like to be in better shape,” Sirianni said Monday, a day after the team improved to 6-7 with a 33-18 win over the New York Jets. The Eagles are a half-game behind Washington (6-6) and San Francisco (6-6) for the last two wild-card spots in the NFC.
As the losses mounted over the course of the season, the New York Giants could always look at the standings in the weak NFC and recognize they were a game or so out of a wild-card playoff berth. The Giants (4-8) are going nowhere in 2021, other than probably back to the drawing board. With their 20-9 loss to Miami, New York is on the verge of a fifth straight losing record, and fifth straight year out of the postseason.
