#Giants vs #Jets Christmas Eve Do-or-Die Game

@SportsBata ..nuff said

The Christmas Eve do-or-die game: Big Blue vs. Gang Green deemed the “Showdown at the Swamp” turned into an early playoff game in past weeks. Ticket prices went through the roof with the average price ($384.25 a seat) increasing 22% since Dec 1! Jets coach Rex (Ryan) is already talking smack on the Giants. The winner has a ‘good’ chance at the playoffs, and the loser is out of the playoffs. The Jets (8-6) need to win the last two games to make a wild-card spot, and the Giants (7-7) need two (too) to win the division.

“We have to win this game, we have to get in the playoffs, and the Giants have to do the same. So it’s going to be huge,” Jets coach (Rex) Ryan said.

“I recognize that they’re an excellent football team, but I think we’re better,” Ryan said on a conference call.

“Certainly, we were the better team the first two years,” Ryan said. “We made the playoffs and went to the (AFC) championship game. To say a team’s better than you that never made the playoffs is ridiculous. Clearly, we were the better  team my first two years. We get to prove it Saturday who the best team is this  year.” – nypost
