The New York City Championship Game is slated to kick-off this Saturday, Dec. 24 when the Giants and the Jets clash at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
This game has taken on a life of its own with Rex Ryan's trash talk and major playoff implications for both teams. The Giants actually need this game the most as a loss combined with a Cowboys' win would end their shot at winning the NFC East. The Jets currently hold the No.6 seed in the AFC with the tie-breaker over Cincinnati and would still have a chance to get in with a win over the Dolphins and a Bengals loss either this week or next.
Both of these teams are actually trying to back-in the postseason after getting waxed last week in games they should have won. The Giants were routed by Washington 23-10 in a game that was not even that close. The Jets were embarrassed by the Eagles 45-19 in game that was over by the end of the first quarter. Whichever one can play anywhere near their capabilities should come away with city bragging rights as an early Christmas present.
