You know, the Jets and the Giants both call MetLife Stadium home.

You know, these teams are crosstown rivals. They have an annual preseason game,  but they only play in the regular season once every four years.

You know, the last time these teams played it was Christmas Eve in 2011. Both needed a win to keep their Playoff hopes alive. A Victor Cruz 99 yard touchdown catch sparked a Giants win. It was the start of a six game winning streak for the Giants that ended in a Super Bowl win.

You know, Shane Vereen played in the AFC East against the Jets as a member of the Patriots from 2011 through 2014. He knows a thing or two about going up against this Jets defense.

You know, Todd Bowles faced the Giants twice a year as a player when he was a member of the Washington Redskins.

You know, Jets defensive line coach Pepper Johnson won two Super Bowls during his playing career with the Giants.
