The New York Giants defeat the New York Jets in the preaseason

The New York Giants defeated the New York Jets by the score of 26-3 on Saturday night in preseason football. The game took place at both teams home stadium which is Metlife stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. It really didn’t matter if Tim Tebow or Mark Sanchez was starting the Giants defense was very good. Tebow may have even been a little better but he was going up against the backup defense so it’s hard to judge.  Lawrence Tynes the Giants kicker had four field goals, Eli Manning had a pretty good game but the Giants starting offense didn’t do much against the Jets starting defense. The Giants backup offensive players did most of the damage. David Carr led the Giants going 5-9 with 83 yards. The leading rusher for the Giants was David Wilson the rookie who had eight carries for 26 yards and Victor Cruz led the receivers with five catches for 51 yards.
Tebow led the Jets offense going 5-14 with 69 yards. Shonn Greene led the running backs with 11 carries for 36 yards and White led the recievers with three catches for 28 yards.
The Giants defense had seven sacks. Each team had one interception and the Jets had one sack. The Giants are now 1-1 in the preseason and the Jets are 0-2. The preseason doesn’t mean anything though and you can’t take much out of it. The Jets will take on the Carolina Panthers next Sunday at home and the Giants will take on the Chicago Bears on Friday at home.
