Today, the New York Times asked me to write about why I thought the Jets would win, so in my parsimonious word budget, I discussed the Jets cornerbacks and the Jets running game and why they are key to the Jets outcome.
Here’s all the pieces from this week in case you missed any:

Frank GrayBGB EditorThe New York Giants (6-6) are at a crossroads. They must win out the remainder of their season in order to make the playoffs. They only find themselves in this position after an embarrassing loss last week against Washington. Also losses to the Seahawks, Washington in week one and a four game losing streak didn't help matters either. They are in a dire state...
The New York Jets play the New York Giants on Christmas Eve in what could decide the playoff fate of both teams. The Jets come in at 8-6, the leading candidate for the sixth seed in the AFC.

It isn't often in a football season that players and coaches get a one-game chance to redeem everything that went wrong over the course of the year.
There's almost always too much at stake every single week to say that 60 minutes in Week 16 really matter more than all of the minutes leading up or the minutes that will follow in the final game of the season. Almost always...
No doubt about this one. During the week, Darrelle Revis said he knew zero about Victor Cruz other than the one terrific preseason game he had against the Jets last year. Then Cruz obliterated the Jets yesterday, racking up 164 receiving yards and delivering the game-turning 99-yard touchdown.
