Yes, one sports pundit actually saw this coming

You gotta see it to believe it.

The New York Jets beat the Los Angeles Rams Sunday 23-20, in a game that absolutely no one could have seen coming.

Well, not absolutely no one. Just almost no one.

No one but one man.

Yes, two days before the winless Jets beat the likely playoff-bound Rams, one sports pundit predicted it would happen. On the show “First Things First,” FS1’s Kevin Wildes listed the Jets as his upset watch for the week.

He even took it a step further, saying that the Jets wanted to win because they want to tank their way to the second pick, not the first pick. Wildes’ reasoning was that the Jets don’t want to risk the embarrassment of having Trevor Lawrence reject them, so they want to slip to second instead.

Please watch. It will ease the pain, at least a little tiny bit.

Wildes couldn’t really keep a straight face while offering his prediction, and his colleagues gave him a lot of flak for it.

Looks pretty good now though.
