Eagles vs. Giants: What's the history?


Philadelphia vs. New York equals intense hatred, in whatever sport or rivalry one chooses. Flyers-Rangers, 76ers-Knicks, Phillies-Mets and even the old Philadelphia A's and Yankees were rivals. In...

What were the Top 5 NY sports stories of 2012?


While trying to whittle down the top New York sports stories of 2012 to a measly five, plenty of worthy stories won't make the cut. The city's most storied franchise, the New York Yankees, did not...

Giants vs. Ravens: What's the history?


Ok, this is going to be short. And painful. There's not much history between the New York Giants and Baltimore Ravens, and what history exists heavily favors the Ravens. There's plenty of history...

Dickey's exit: Can the Mets emulate the Knicks?

Jeremy Lin mesmerized a city, and to a certain extent the world, for a month or so last winter, helping to drag the New York Knicks out of the muck they were stuck in and into contention. He became...

R.A. Dickey may be gone but he won't be forgotten

R.A. Dickey spent three productive -- and at times magical -- years with the New York Mets (of course they weren't magical for the Mets, just Dickey). He was a fan favorite, he was the team's best...

Linsanity returns: What does Houston think of Lin?

Jeremy Lin and the Houston Rockets visit Madison Square Garden to face the New York Knicks Monday, bring Lin back to New York for the first time. With that in mind, here is a Q&A with Patrick...

Knicks-Nets: Classic NY-Brooklyn rivalries of old


The New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets are in the fledgling stages of another New York-Brooklyn rivalry, with round two coming on Tuesday night. The Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants were the No....

Chandler's game meshes with Knick 3-point barrage


The New York Knicks' offense often comes down to long-range bombs behind the three-point line or a Tyson Chandler dunk. And the two are, of course, interrelated. The ball is spread around, with...

Saints vs. Giants: What's the history?


The New York Giants take on the New Orleans Saints this Sunday, and we have to look long and hard to find any real history between these two teams. The Saints were born in 1967, mainly as a quid...

Knicks & Nets both good? It hasn't happened often


The Brooklyn Nets came into existence in the inaugural season of the ABA in 1967-68 as the New Jersey Americans, which gives us 44 seasons of the Nets and New York Knicks coexisting in the area's...

Greg McElroy & other Jet QB debuts


New York Jets coach Rex Ryan was finally bold enough to do something about the woeful production he was getting out of the quarterback position that has been dragging his team down all season, when...

Who is this week's unsung hero?


The Brooklyn Nets won three of four games this past week, and Jerry Stackhouse played a large role in two of the wins. As one veteran signing after another by the New York Knicks was met with...

The New York Giants travel to DC to take on the Washington Redskins on Monday night. The two teams are in the 81st season of their rivalry, with the Giants holding the upper hand in head-to-head...

Will Ryan's days end bizarrely like in Jets past?

To say the New York Jets are a mess these days would be a massive understatement. Their season has been in turmoil for a while now, and the Thanksgiving night massacre at the hands of the New...

Who were the top 5 stars in the Knicks-Nets game?


The first (delayed) shot in the brand-new New York Knicks-Brooklyn Nets rivalry was fired on Monday night, with the hard-fought 96-89 win by the Nets, which of course had to go into overtime just...

This week's unsung hero plays in Brooklyn


The Brooklyn Nets closed out their West Coast road trip with a pair of losses, but they recovered nicely with two wins back at home, defeating the Los Angeles Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers. J...

Packers vs. Giants: A little history & trivia


The New York Giants host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, and the two teams are, of course, two of the most storied franchises in the history of the NFL. The names associated with the Giants...

It's time to give thanks, New York sports-style


Thanksgiving is upon us once again, which means it's time to watch March of the Wooden Soldiers on WPIX on Thursday morning, followed by eating too much turkey, drinking too much booze and watching...

Knicks in New Orleans? Maravich scored 68 in '77


The New York Knicks play the New Orleans Hornets on Tuesday night, which automatically conjures up thoughts of Pete Maravich. Ok, maybe not "automatically," but the creative basketball genius had...

Which Jet is the unsung hero of the week?


The New York Jets are not dead yet, as they stay alive for at least another (shortened) week, with their 27-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams. It turned out to be a pretty easy win for the Jets,...

How are the Knicks winning? The old-fashioned way


The New York Knicks originally went the star route while putting their present team together -- Amar'e Stoudemire, followed by Carmelo Anthony, and then they filled in the pieces from there. They...

Jets vs. Rams? Memories of Gastineau vs. Slater


Yes, the New York Jets' season is swirling in a downward spiral of mediocrity, but they still have to play the games on their schedule. And next up is the St. Louis Rams, this coming Sunday. The...

Who is the unsung hero of the week?


The New York Knicks won two more games this week, as they remain the only undefeated team in the NBA. It's hard to find anything wrong with the Knicks so far. Defense? Good. Offense? Good....

Giants vs. Bengals: What's the history?

The New York Giants and Cincinnati Bengals have only met eight times. Here is a look at each of those eight games.

Is everything good for Knicks & Nets? Almost


The New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets both headed into the season with sky-high expectations and extreme optimism. Both were confident that they could not only contend for a division title but make...
