This Week in Sports| September 14-21

I’d like to take this opportunity to personally thank the sports world for singlehandedly getting me through this shit show of a year. It’s almost eerie how normal sports can make me feel. Like most people, I assumed there would be some difference in the product offered on the field/court/ice when sports returned to play, whether due to the lack of fans, the effect of outside events on players, or some combination of factors. However as the world around us continues to digress in seemingly every way possible, the constancy of yesterday’s NFL slate was a refreshing return to normalcy. The Giants and Jets disappointed fans, Pat Mahomes and Kyler Murray made plays that only they could make, and Sunday Night Football was a nail bitter that came down to the final play. It’s that sense of normalcy that sports have brought to my life that has made this pandemic somewhat bearable. With that being said, here’s a recap of the best the sports world had to bring this week.
