NFL: Giants vs. Jets in New Meadowlands Opener


2010-08-16

The first game ever at the new Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, will feature the two teams that will share the stadium in years to come. Although it is just an exhibition game, you can be sure that both the Giants and Jets want to claim the first “bragging rights” in their new home. According to oddsmakers from Sportsbook.com, the Jets have the better chance of doing that, as they are 2.5-point favorites, with an accompanying total set at 33.

Big things are expected of the Jets and second-year QB Mark Sanchez, as they try to build on last season’s unexpected run to the AFC Championship Game.

The Giants and Eli Manning won the Super Bowl just three years ago, and have shown flashes of being the best team in the sport at times over the last two seasons. But they fell apart in the second half of 2009, losing eight of their final 11 games after starting 5-0.

The Jets will be without CB Darrelle Revis who is in the midst of what could turn out to be an extensive holdout, but newcomers to the Jets in 2010, cornerbacks Antonio Cromartie and Kyle Wilson, have been standouts at camp so far.

Sanchez should only play one or two series, while backups Mark Brunell and Kellen Clemens will see the majority of the action for the Jets. Jim Sorgi and Rhett Bomar should play the majority of the game for the Giants after Eli Manning departs.

These two teams have played every preseason since 1969 with the Jets taking the last three meetings. We expect the streak to continue with the Jets superior talent at backup QB (Brunell and Clemens are both former starters).

StatFox points out that the JETS are 13-3 against the spread versus the GIANTS in the preseason since 1993.

Kickoff is set for 8:00 PM ET and live coverage is brought to you by ESPN’s Monday Night Football crew.
