The defending champion New York Giants keep their preseason slate using a match against the rival New York Jets. As always, expectations are high for the two teams from the media frenzy called New York City, which sport is a building block toward living up to the hype.
Normally it’d be the group coming from a Super Bowl victory which could obtain all the focus, however, the Jets’ purchase of Tim Tebow has changed the attention for their side across the offseason.
Both of these teams faced off in Week 16 final season, and also a Giants victory helped propel the group to its Super Bowl run. Saturday night’s match will not carry quite as much significance, but the two sides will have a few goals in mind since the normal season inches nearer.
