Jets and Giants football Gameday!

Two teams, one gameday thread, can't beat that when Johnny is feeling like a lazy bastard.

By rights and a lots of metrics the Giants should do well today. They have decided advantages at a couple of key positions, not the least of which is quarterback. Eli Manning is better than Grizzly Fitzpatrick, he just is. So why is Johnny leaning Mean Green on this one tight now?

The Jets we have a feeling are going to be able to run today. They're going to have to which means if Johnny knows it the Giants sure do and still the Jets are gonna be able to control the tempo of the game on the ground is Johnny's guess. The Jets average over 100 yards on the ground a game and we see nothing in Big Blue's resume this year that says that won't continue. We also don't think the Giants are going to be able to run, not that they ever seem to make it a priority. Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. will have to have strong days and stretch the field vertically and with no Darrell Revis in the Jets secondary there's no excuse not to. Eli seems to play better against teams outside the division if you ask us.

Again, there are a lot of reasons the Giants could and should win, this game has BIG playoff implications for both teams, ie a December gut-check. The Jets running game though, it'll open enough balls for Brandon Marshall for the Jets to pull off a close win.

Fearless Forecast:
