Is it a rivalry? Kind of. Is it an important game this year? Definitely.
The New York Jets and New York Giants square off on Sunday afternoon with one thought in their collective minds; winning. Technically speaking, the Giants are the home team during the non-divisional tilt, but that doesn’t matter quite as much as which squad can put up more points.
Big Blue is fresh off another disappointing performance in last week’s loss to the Washington Redskins, while Gang Green is feeling good after a strong showing against the Miami Dolphins. Of course, there have been some memorable matchups between these two squads, most recently in 2011 when the Giants entered the game with a 7-7 record before a 99-yard Victor Cruz touchdown catch changed their entire Super Bowl-winning season.
