The last week has been one of the worst in recent memories for the City of Brotherly Love and The Big Apple, Philadelphia and New York City. The New York Yankees, favored to win the pennant, were eliminated from the American League Divisional Series on Thursday by the Detroit Tigers. The following day, the Philadelphia Phillies, favored to win the World Series, were shutout by Chris Carpenter and the St. Louis Cardinals and sent home.
On Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles, favored by many to win the Super Bowl this season, fell to 1-4 after a 31-24 loss to the Buffalo Bills. The New York Jets, also predicted by some to win a Super Bowl, including their head coach Rex Ryan, fell to 2-3 after a loss to the New England Patriots 30-21. Finally, the New York Giants, who were highly favored to defeat the Seattle Seahawks, lost 36-25 after committing five turnovers.
