NFL Sneak Peek – Week 1 – Giants vs. Lions

The Giants and Lions both fell short of the playoffs last year each playing in divisions that earned just one postseason slot. Detroit was alive until the Giants beat them 23-20 in overtime during week 16 in Michigan. It also put the final nail in Lions coach Jim Schwartz’s coffin. Detroit seemed on their way to victory leading 20-13 late in the fourth quarter but New York scored a defense touchdown to tie the game, and kicked a game winning field goal on their second possession of overtime. The Lions final five chances with the ball ended with four punts and a defensive score. New York was limited to just 41 yards on the ground on 21 carries while the Lions scampered for 148 yards. The teams combined for five turnovers.

New York Jets 2014 NFL Betting Preview

Rex Ryan begins his sixth season as Jets coach, a milestone that seemed unlikely both at the start of last season and 12 games into it. After going 28-20 and making the playoffs twice in his first three years, New York was just 6-10 in 2012. Most thought 2013 was a make or break year for Ryan and when the team was 5-7 it appeared the coach’s days were numbered. However, the Jets won three of four down the stretch and were an even better 9-6-1 against the spread. The Jets finished 6-2 at home straight up and against the number. They had eight overs last year and eight unders.
