Week 10 brings the Landfill Bowl for New York with the matchup of the Jets vs. the Giants. Here we have 2 of the worst 6 teams in the league. The Jets are 1-7 while the Giants are 2-7. The Giants should be 1-8. Matt Gay of Tampa Bay missed a 34 yard chip shot PAT distance field goal vs. the Giants in week 3.They would have won 34-32 but lost to New York 32-31. The only other team that the Giants beat were the hapless Redskins. Keenum got hurt in that game and Washington put in Haskins for his first appearance. Obviously, he was not ready for the bright lights of NFL play yet and made victory easy for the Gmen.
In this matchup you have the Jets who have scored the least amount of points in the league at 96 vs. the Giants who have given up 255 points this year to the opposition. The only team that has given up more points has been the Miami Dolphins at 1 point more at 256. However, they gave up half those points, 133, in the first 3 weeks. The Jets have only 16 plays of 20 yards or more. The Giants on the other hand have given up 46 plays of 20 yards or more. 11 of those plays have gone for 40 yards or more including 2 last week vs. the Cowboys. The Jets red zone defense is very bad allowing touchdowns to the opposition 65.4% of the time in the red zone which ranks 29th.Continue reading
