Normally you'd expect that after a week of bashing the Giants, that we'd be looking for the Giants to lose this coming weekend. But that is not the case. We are not predicting a Giants win, but we do believe the Giants have the edge. Here's why:
1) The Giants are a better team on paper. When they play their 'A' game, they will beat the Jets 'A' game.
2) The Giants have more focus and energy when they play as underdogs than when they are favorites. Since they are FG underdogs following a loss, we expect them to bounce back. Week 15 vs the Redskins was abominable. If they dare to not show up in Week 16, it would be despicable. Given all the rivalry w the Jets etc, I cannot imagine the Giants being flat again.
3) Eli Manning and Giants offense is far more potent than Mark Sanchez and the Jets offense.
4) JPP should require a double team. Wayne Hunter will need help. When JPP is doubled, that will mean a Jets offense that is already limited becomes even more limited.
