In NFL preseason 2013 live stream online, televised and radio broadcast Saturday, the New York Giants, who defeated their neighborhood rival in the 2011 Super Bowl XLVI to win the championship, is hosting New York Jets at Metlife Stadium in week 3 of the NFL preseason on August 24 at 7:00 PM EST in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Geno Smith, the rookie quarterback, is Jets starter and will be leading the first offense. A Florida native, Smith said he is extremely excited about this game, ‘especially since I didn’t get to play last week. So I get an opportunity to go out there and play and try to win the game with my teammates. Meanwhile, the players who grew up in the New York/New Jersey metro area will have their family and friends cheering for both teams.
“There’s a big divide between diehard Jets fans and diehard Giants fans,” said Rookie free agent Jets player Ryan Spadola. “This week I’ve got a bunch of my friends and family coming up, and obviously they’ll be rooting for their teams. But they’ll all be cheering for me at the same time. For them it’s a big game to come and watch, and being a Jersey guy, it’s an honor to be a part of that rivalry.”
Preseason game stats do not count towards the regular season, and players, including all-stars, have suffered injuries that ended their season. Last week, Miami’s Dustin Keller ended his season through an injury. However, players, coaches, and veterans consider the preseason as preparation for them to get their bodies and minds in a rhythm for the regular season.
“It is a necessary evil,” says Russ Salzberg, the veteran Ch. 5/9 sportscaster and host of the Giants’ postgame TV show, the New York Daily News reports. “Coaches need preseason games to assess younger talent. At the same time they are holding their breath. It’s every coach’s nightmare to lose anyone to injury, let alone lose a key player in the preseason.”
According to NFL.com, New York Jets’ team leaders in passing Mark Sanchez, rushing Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell, receiving Jeremy Kerley, Jeff Cumberland, Dustin Keller, and Chaz Schilens. New York Giants’ team leaders in passing are Eli Manning, rushing Ahmad Bradshaw, Andre Brown, receiving Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Martellus Bennett, and Domenik Hixon.
In the offensive comparison, New York Jets average 299.2 total yards per game while Giants averages 355.4 yards. For the passing yards per game, Jets average 180.7, while Colts average 239. The rush yards per game for both teams are close, where the former has 118.5 and the latter with 116.4. Looking at just the overall offensive stats for both teams, the 2011 Super Bowl championship team has the upper hand in today’s matchup.
