In this weekend’s NFL rivalry game, the Giants need a win

When New York City rivals Jets and Giants come together at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, it is a reminder of what may befall the United States of America. The first two months of the year were a flurry of midterm elections, threats of government shutdowns, leaked criminal files, and the blizzard that stopped the State of the Union speech.

But none of that really poses a threat to the New York Jets and New York Giants, who have the same record of 0-5 heading into their clash.

That would be progress from 2018, when each team had losing records and both of them went through miserable 2018 drafts. Last year’s Jets finished with three straight wins and brought quarterback Sam Darnold, the No. 3 overall pick, into the league. But Sam Darnold did not succeed right away. He tossed five interceptions in his first five games, his yardage dropped by nearly 2,000 yards, and he nearly got benched in favor of Teddy Bridgewater.

This year, the Giants drafted the top overall pick, Saquon Barkley, but he has not gotten into the lineup yet and is not expected to do so until Week 6.
