Mets improved by five games and in regards to pitching and a few positions made some promising steps forward this season. They did finish (fwiw) in second place. They still need another bat or two to truly contend. Meanwhile, bad start by NYJ, 0-3 vs. the NFC North. Giants had a good week. Also, Tampa beat Steelers near the buzzer, taking a bit of the bad taste of a whooping by the Falcons. Nats had a no-hitter but no upsets in Game 162.
