Sports on TV, 10/8: Yankees, Jets on in primetime

The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Andy Pettitte starts Game 2 for the New York Yankees as they try to keep the Baltimore Orioles from evening up the ALDS, and the New York Jets host arguably the league's top squad in the Houston Texans.

A pair of New York teams are in action on a Monday night without a lot of sports nationally: let's look at how to watch.

MLB: New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles, 8:07 p.m., TBS: Andy Pettitte pitches his 40th postseason game for the Yanks and his first since 2010 as New York tries to jump out to a 2-0 lead in the ALDS. The Yankees had trouble getting to Orioles starting pitching for much of Sunday's game, only pushing across two runs in the first eight innings. However, New York knocked in five runs off of Orioles closer Jim Johnson in the ninth. Wei-Yin Chen takes the mound for the Orioles, and he's exactly who New York wants to see, as they've beaten the Taiwanese pitcher twice in back-to-back starts in early September, scoring 10 combined earned runs against Chen in 11.1 innings.

NFL: Houston Texans vs New York Jets, 8:30 p.m., ESPN: Monday Night Football comes to MetLife Stadium, as the Jets take on the team many consider to be the league's best, the undefeated Texans. Jets fans would probably settle for a respectable performance: they're 2-2 and could be in the lead in the AFC East with a win, but have been blown out in two of their past three games, including a 34-0 romp by the San Francisco 49ers. The Texans have the league's best scoring defense facing off against a team that struggled even when top receiver Santonio Holmes was healthy, and Andre Johnson won't have Darrelle Revis facing off against him.
