Giants Smash Jets 26-3, Prove That Manning Still Owns New York

    There was a minute there a couple of seasons ago, when the Giants were struggling and Mark Sanchez was leading the Jets to the AFC title game, that it seemed the balance of power could be shifting in the world of New York football. Then Sanchez was exposed and Eli got another ring; in a last ditch attempt to stay relevant in the off-season, the Jets acquired human headline generator Tim Tebow to “not” compete with Sanchez and give New York fans another reason to don the green. On Saturday night, however, the Jets could have had Joe Namath at quaterback and it wouldn’t have mattered. While the Jets might have more buzz on ESPN, the 26-3 final score (even in the preseason) indicates that Manning and the Giants are still the top of the heap in the Big Apple. No amount of quaterback controversy is going to change that any time soon. [Yahoo Sports]
