2006_08_sjetslogo.jpgIf this were baseball, fans of both teams would care about the other. But it's football, and Jets fans don't worry as much about being better than the Giants as Mets fans worry about topping the Yankees. Both New York teams stand at 6-5, and the Jets travel to Green Bay, where it's never easy to win in December. Despite an up-and-down season, they're only a game out of a wild card spot for the playoffs, but they'll need things to break right for that to be more than a pipe dream.

Everyone loves to point out how much better Chad Pennington plays in Jets wins than he does in losses. What team's quarterback doesn't play better in wins? On the other side of the ball, the team needs to play better defense against the run. The Jets have nine sacks -- and have allowed only 35 points -- over the last three games, but their rush defense is ranked 26th in the NFL. The unit's also allowed 13 touchdowns, tied for the worst mark in the league. Sunday's game won't turn on Pennington as much as it turns on the Jets' ability to contain Packers running back Ahman Green, who has only 127 rushing yards in the past three games.
