One and One

I figured the Giants were going to have a tough game today against the Redskins. Divisional games are always intense, the Skins have a hard-hitting defense, the G-Men were coming off this huge Plax-shoots-himself distraction, and Washington figured to be sky high off the Sean Taylor anniversary and his induction into their Ring of Honor.

On the other hand, I figured the Jets would win easily. They were at home, the weather figured to help their running game and hamper the Bronco aerial attack, Denver hasn't been able to stop the run all season, and the Jets had just defeated two much tougher teams in New England and Tennessee.

Show what I know.

Or, as Chris Berman likes to say, "that's why they play the games."

It was one and one alright, but just the reverse of the way I had it. Total domination by the Giants, but the Jets got embarassed on both sides of the ball. The only good moment in the Jets game was the amazing Thomas Jones roll-over-a-defender-bounce-up-again-and-score touchdown, which had to be seen to be believed.
