And by all the marbles, we mean the Snoopy Trophy, which was thrown into the mix for the first time this year. New Meadowlands Stadium was renamed to MetLife Stadium just last week, and in the spirit of tradition, the two Hudson River teams will now face off annually and play for the trophy. The game will be known as the "MetLife Bowl."
But it's the bragging rights that are most important, right?
The New York Football Giants have long been hailed as the more successful, professional franchise. The Jets, on the other hand, were nicknamed "little brother", after sharing Giants Stadium for 26 years as they didn't have a stadium to call home after leaving Shea Stadium.
Times are changing, though. And right now, it appears the Jets are in a better position to win a Super Bowl than the Giants are. Led by a ground-and-pound rushing attack which racks up yards and controls time of possession, and an athletic QB Mark Sanchez who excels in play-action passing. On the other side of the ball, Rex Ryan's aggressive, blitz-heavy defensive unit disrupts even the most potent passing attacks and fields one of the top three defenses in the NFL.
Come to think of it, this Jets team actually resembles the 2007 Giants team that won Super Bowl XLII.
Tonight, Burress will go up against his former team that released him. Could revenge be on his mind?
