NY Giants at NY Jets
Saturday, Aug. 18 at 7:00 p.m. ET
There is nothing more intriguing in Week 2 of the preseason than the battle for New York between the Jets and the Giants. While the boys in blue are coming off a Super Bowl win, it is gang green that has stolen all the headlines.
That’s the way Tom Coughlin and the Giants like it, though. With more questions than answers from the Jets, the Giants are expected to walk into this game and destroy the Jets.
The talk will be about when and in what formation Tim Tebow sees the field for the Jets, but the focus of this game should be on the defending world champion Giants and how they react to the hangover.
Either way you look at it, this game is storyline galore!
San Francisco at Houston
Saturday, Aug. 18 at 8:00 p.m. ET
While this matchup is far from the highlight of the rest of the games yet to be played in Week 2, this is one of the sleeper picks for a possible Super Bowl matchup in 2012.
In this battle of SEC-style football, this will be a defensive battle highlighted by the running ability and timely passing by both teams. Defense wins championships and this game will feature plenty of that.
