It was the battle for New York or more exactly the battle in or near New York if you want to be more exact. Let’s be real neither is going to the Super bowl and neither team has been to the NFL Playoffs in a while. The Jets at 6-5 were on the up swing having won their last game in impressive fashion and the Giants well, 4 quarter leads and the GMen do go well together. Giants had their way early and often on Gang Green, leading 20-10 at the half . It might have been 24-10 had it not been for a touchdown saving play by Calvin Pryor knocking Odell Beckham Jr with a clean hit which forced Beckham not to hold on to a sure touchdown and the Giants had to settle at that point for a field goal 20-10 halftime.
But the Jets came back scoring 10 points in the second half to tie the game and send it into overtime which the scored a field goal to go ahead 23-20 leaving the Giants a chance to tie but Josh Brown missed the field goal which gave the jets the win putting them at 7-5 and in the thick of the wild card hunt while the Giants fell to 5-7 in a tie for first place with the Washington Redskins. Many questioned Giant coach Tom Coughlin’s decision to go for it with the Giants up by 10, Coughlin set himself up to be second-guessed on Sunday with a decision to go for a game-clinching touchdown instead of a chip-shot field goal with the Giants ahead of the Jets by 10 points. The plan backfired, the Jets rallied to tie the game in the final minute of regulation and won in overtime, sending the Giants (5-7) to their third straight loss.
