The State of Writing

From ESPN.com:

"Sanchez and the Jets, though, were explosive enough to score 10 points in the last 2:46 and on the opening drive of OT."

So they scored 10 points in the last 2:46 and another 10 on the opening drive of OT? That's a lot of points on one drive!

"Detroit got off to a good start and led for much of the game, but couldn't make enough winning plays on both sides of the ball to snap New York's seven-game winning streak on the road."

Not only could Detroit not make "enough" winning plays, they couldn't make any. Because, you know, if you make a winning play, you win. And they didn't win.
