the jets are one win away from heading into the post season. offense. the heart of the offense is a pair of guys the jets traded for one week in march. brandon marshall came in with all this hype and he's lived up to it by delivering a jet's single season record 13 touchdown catches. who knew when they traded for ryan fitzpatrick his contribution would be the greatest statistical season in jet's franchise history? today he threw for his 29th touchdown and ties a record long held by vinny testaverde. the last five patriots jets games have been decided by
it was not a surprise that new england erased a lead to tie it and makes this decision so baffling. the patriots just marched down the field to score and choose to kick it in ot. the coaches admitted they were trying to play the field position game. their overconfidence bit them. ryan fitzpatrick is not the same player that's only beaten the patriots once in his career. over the last five games he's thrown one interception and 13 touchdowns. that includes the game winning walk off touchdown to eric decker. jets win 26-20 and once again they sit in that final wild card spot. >> we won the game. we haven't arrived yet. we got things to do next weekend and things to clean up. they fight, they have character and learn how to play together >> we have to work hard this week and go to buffalo with a million different story lines there and you know, we got to

it left a huge hole in new york's game plan. eli manning turned in one of his worst performances of the season. he was picked off three times and one returned for a pick six. new york's pass defense is ranked dead last and got knocked around in the trenches. minnesota ran for three touchdowns and the giants pleading no contest in minnesota. 49-17. their record is now 6-9. we're going to switch things to baseball. not baseball in america. there is a new documentary on netflix about the growth of baseball in the small corner of india. it's called the only real game. i spoke with the director and i started this conversation by asking her the significance of the title. >> the only real game is taken from something that meant so much to me when i discovered where it came from. it was a quote from babe ruth and it was something he talked about when he was leaving the game towards the end of his life and he talked about having been
who played stick ball and who was a nobody and could grow up to be a legend and meaningful to other young people in the world. he said that's what makes baseball the only real game in the world. when we discovered the passion for baseball in this literally unknown to most of us in the west, part of the world, i felt like that connected our story and the story of baseball in india in a great way. >> yeah, perfect explanation for what we saw, which is adults playing this sport like they were kids. watching the sheer joy of throwing a ball and catching a ball. do you understand what you were capturing when you were seeing this? >> chris, when we first went there, we knew that there were people playing but we had no idea the extent of the love for the game and also the skills because of the length of time
so from the first day that we arrived until over the course of several years when we were working on the film, what we saw was a kind of growth of the attachment to the game and team spirit and people's commitment to play this game despite all the hardships they're living with. >> a ton of hardships. in a corner of the world that is from the sports world would be cricket and soccer and now you introduce a new sport, more or less, baseball. do you think the appeal of the sport was what drove people or the appeal of what america represents? >> well, it's a very good question. in one way or another, people have been playing baseball at least since the second world war. one of if sequences in the film
vets in that part of the world. they were in support of the british and people began playing that long ago. the game has had its up's and down's and it's now in a resur about. >> in that country aids is an epidemic and unemployment is at 25%. we complain about 5% here. there are half a million people unemployed. drug addiction is rampant and living under a rule of the army for more than a hundred years. it seems like they've grown up generation after generation feeling helpless. now does this sport give them an opportunity to maybe as all sports give us, a little discipline? a path? a goal to achieve? >> well, i think the sport opens
joy and cohesion and for whatever reason, baseball represents something very free to people in montapour. you hit on something real about the discipline and the team unifying demand of a sport like baseball which honors the achievement of the individual and the achievement of the team. that may be something that they are particularly attracted to given the situation they're living in. i think the situation is somewhat better now than what we're filming. with new policies things have loosened up somewhat. it is still largely under occupation both by the indian army and by various state militias. they feel that they are not
and making their own choices in the way they would like to be able to. sport has a kind of, if you will, spirit shl relevance >> we know baseball has been on the forefront of making changes here. we saw a little hint of that in we? >> yeah. i think baseball is, if we have anything to do with it, is going to be a big thing in india and should be. partly because of cricket. people are familiar with ball and bat sports. i think they enjoy the faster pace of the game and you know, it's unique. it's certainly for them. they're very good at baseball. it makes them unique and it's a good thing for them. particularly also because women are among the best players and the most powerful players.
on this sport really begins with the ambassadors you bring in. two characters that were centralized around this were the two coaches you brought. in very different ways they both shared the same passion for this sport and that seemed to be something that permeates throughout the film. >> phenomenal men, both of them. they are major league baseball coaches, part of the mlb international program, which is a wonderful project that helps bring professional level coaching to communities all over the world who care about baseball. in this case it was the luck of the draw that we happened to draw the two best possible guys for this project. they were just wonderful. >> when you're putting together a documentary you don't get to write the ending. you can't write the ending but this film had joy, pain.
how did you know when you were done? >> that's a very good question. i think many films certainly forever. when the kids were turned down and they were not able to come except for one man who did make it to new york to yankee stadium, to the harlem rbi program, which is a great baseball program, we felt that we had brought everything full circle. we had sent people there and they had come here. we had seen the connection through the second world war with our vets and in a way what i think we did was we tried to do was to leave the door open and hope that in the coming years they'll be more of this
field will get built and maybe these kids will be able to come and learn from players here specifically in new york. we'd love for them to come to new york. >> we hope this story continues and the hopeful message this sport has given continues to evolve. you can catch it on netflix. it's the only real game. it's on netflix. thank you so much for coming into studio. >> tremendous pleasure. thank you. knicks have dropped three straight after losing to the hawks last night. carmelo anthony has led the knicks in scoring 23 times this season. tonight he had 29. new york within five but isaiah thomas continues to kill the knicks. not the former team president. it's the 5-foot 9 guard who has a way of negotiating through the lane.
>> let's get a final look at your wake up weather. >> it's going to be colder when people wake up and now we have winter weather alerts. they don't go into affect until 6:00 p.m. monday but you'll see ice, sleet and snow. here's the high for monday. 42 degrees late monday into early tuesday is when we get the wintery mix. get ready for it. >> a lot of variety. thank you. that does it for cbs 2 news at 112. for the entire news team, thanks
