2022 World Series Preview
The Philadelphia Phillies and Houston Astros will play Game 1 of the 2022 World Series on Friday night at Houston’s Minute Maid Park. The Astros will be vying for their second championship in the last six years and second in franchise history, while the Phillies are looking to reach the top of the MLB heap for the first time since 2008 and for the third time in franchise history.
The Astros reached the Fall Classic by sweeping the Yankees in the ALCS. Across the league, the Phillies took down the Padres in five games in the NLCS.
during the regular season Houston topped Philly by 19 games in the standings and by 157 runs in run differential
the Phillies again split the first two games against the Padres before rattling off three straight victories. Bryce Harper sealed the deal with a two-run, go-ahead home run — his fifth dinger of the postseason — in the eighth inning of Game 4.
Boasting the most balanced roster in MLB, Houston won the AL West by a whopping 16 games over the Seattle Mariners and promptly swept them in the ALDS like they were nothing more than a minor inconvenience.

Jets acquire James Robinson from Jaguars
Breece Hall is out for the season after suffering a torn ACL in the Jets’ Week 7 win over the Broncos. One day later, New York has found a big-name replacement for its star running back, acquiring James Robinson from the Jaguars in exchange for draft-pick compensation, according to NFL Media. Robinson made a speedy return from his own serious injury to open 2022 in Jacksonville’s backfield, but Travis Etienne Jr. has increasingly emerged as the Jaguars’ lead ball-carrier in recent weeks.
The Jets are sending a conditional sixth-round pick to the Jaguars in exchange for Robinson, per ESPN. That pick can become a fifth depending on Robinson’s performance as New York’s new RB1. Michael Carter was previously slated to take over as the Jets’ top back after Hall was carted off Sunday’s win and quickly ruled out.
Colts bench Matt Ryan, Rookie Sam Ehlinger to start
Matt Ryan has an injured shoulder, but that’s not why the Indianapolis Colts are making a switch at quarterback in Week 8.
The Colts made a surprising announcement on Monday after a loss to the Tennessee Titans, saying Ryan wouldn’t start. He has been benched and the team will turn to Sam Ehlinger at quarterback.
The Athletic reported that Ryan had a Grade 2 shoulder separation and won’t practice this week. But Colts coach Frank Reich said the move to Ehlinger would have happened anyway, and the plan is for him to start the rest of the season.
