Before the game on Monday was delayed due to a heavy storm, there was plenty of lightning and thunder leading up to the Jets-Vikings showdown at the Meadowlands. Pick a headline, any headline. There was a boatload you could choose from. From the Randy Moss trade, to Brett Farves return and text message scandal with a former Jets female employee. Or you could go with the debut of two prominent Jets players, Calvin Pace back from injury to bolster an already stingy defense, and Santonio Holmes, back from suspension to aid an on-the-roll offense headed by Mark Sanchez. The best player on the Jets, Darelle Revis, also makes his comeback from a Week 2 injury against the hated Patriots, who just so happened to trade Randy Moss to the Vikings the exact week they play the Jets. Coincidence ? Yeah, thats what I thought.

The game was delayed almost an hour, and by the end of the game, the Jets had prevailed with a 29-20 victory to send Jets nation home with a 4 game winning streak. The game had many memorable moments, as former Jets quarterback Brett Farve hit a few milestones (good and bad) during the game. At the end though, when it mattered, Farve broke another record, a record I am sure he is not proud of. He leads the league in interceptions returned for touchdowns, which is what Dwight Lowery did with just over a minute left in the game to ice it for the home side.

On a personal note, I wanted to say RIP to my Uncle Philly. He passed away this week, and he was a major influence in my life. I miss you and will always love you. I’ll never forget you.
