Jets vs. Giants: 5 Ways This Previews the Christmas Eve Contest

The annual Week 3 matchup between the New York Giants and New York Jets contains more storylines than usual. New Jets WR Plaxico Burress is facing his old team. Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas is out for the season with a torn right ACL, so Bie Blue has to quickly recover. Mark Sanchez made the news (again) for appearing in GQ, channeling his inner Broadway Joe. And the microscope is still on Eli Manning for telling ESPN Radio's Michael Kay in the same elite QB class as New England Patriots QB Tom Brady.

Oh, and Hurricane Irene is making its way up the East Coast.

The game will now be played at 2 p.m. due to concerns over the impending storm, but in four months, the teams may have to worry about an impending blizzard instead of a hurricane before their Week 16 contest on Christmas Eve. Given that NFL teams always turn it up a notch during Week 3 preseason games, this should be a nice preview of what's sure to be an intense battle down the road.
