Who’s Season Will Be Worse? Jets or Giants

With both the Giants and Jets not starting off their seasons great, it is hard to tell what team will end up having a rougher season. In preseason, the Jets were ranked 13th and the Giants were ranked 16th, seeming to have an opportunity for a playoff  spot. Now, both teams have suffered multiple injuries and have a losing record of 1-3. The future is not looking so bright this season for both of them, but who will be better?

After having a losing record of 7-10, the Jets made the decision that they needed to improve their team. They decided to form a team with former Green Bay Packers star quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. He signed a contract with the Jets for $112.5 million dollars over the course of the next three seasons, with only $75 million being guaranteed. Not only did the Jets pick up Aaron Rodgers from the Packers, they also got Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb, Malik Taylor, Tim Boyle, and Adrian Amos. Unfortunately, Aaron Rodgers tore his achilles and only got to play 94 seconds in his first ever Jets game. This meant that all the rebuilding was essentially worthless, having to turn back to Zach Wilson as quarterback. Wilson currently has a losing streak of 3, but out performed Chiefs quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, on Monday Night Football. With all this horrible injury talk and losing streak, the Jets hope to turn their season around to secure a playoff spot.

On the other hand, the New York Giants have played awfully in their last 4 games. Losing to their rivals, the Cowboys, 40-0, was not a hot start. In my opinion, they just got lucky when beating the Cardinals by a field goal. They should have lost that game, which would make them 0-4. Like the Jets, some of their players have suffered injuries. Star running back, Saquon Barkley, has been out for two weeks with a high ankle sprain. He is projected to be back pretty soon, however, not having him has been detrimental to the Giants offense. Even when the Giants get Barkely back, their record will probably not be as good as last season. Starting the season getting blown out each game is not good for a playoff spot.

So, Who Will Be Better?

In all honesty, it seems that the Jets will have a better season than the Giants. If the Giants want to start keeping games close like the Jets, they could be considered to at least have a decent season. Thus, the Jets have to learn how to run a successful team without Rodgers being their leader on the field. Hopefully, both the Jets and Giants will take care of their team injuries so we can see who really outperforms the other.
