So there is this little football game that is scheduled to take place on Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium. It will feature the New York Jets and New York Giants. Not a big deal, right?
The battle of New York Bragging rights is a big one this year. Both teams are in dire need of a victory. The Jets are coming off a bye week in Week 7, and are riding high from their thrilling 20-14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles two weeks ago.
Head Coach Robert Saleh boasted after the win that the Jets went through the gauntlet of their schedule, and flustered some of the games best quarterbacks: Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, and Jalen Hurts, more specifically.
Now the Jets see a different kind of quarterback, one that doesn’t have the resume of the aforementioned above. Tyrod Taylor doesn’t jump off the pages. He won’t thrill you with his arm, nor his size. But in two games since taking over for the injured Daniel Jones, Taylor has done enough.
Taylor will join Jets quarterback Zach Wilson at the center of the storm.
It’s ironic, neither quarterback was expected to play this game as recently as Week 1 of this season. It was supposed to be Jones vs. Aaron Rodgers.
The winner will be determined on two simple things: turnovers and running the football. Breece Hall must take pressure off of Zach Wilson for the Jets to succeed. Saquon Barkley must take over the game and make like easier for Tyrod Taylor.
Who will win? Look below!!
