The New York Jets defeated the New York Giants 13-10, in overtime on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
This game gave new meaning to the totals under on NFL lines
First – and lastly – the Giants were getting 3 points from their co-tenants at the New Jersey stadium.
Yes, folks, that means the game wound up as a push. It would have been more fitting if the final score had been a tie, but that would have meant the Giants had somehow covered.
In the first half, the Vegas totals lines closed at 14.5. One had to believe that was a number easily hurdled, right?
At the break, the Jets led 7-3. It would only get, um, more – less? – offensive from there.
The over/under at the sportsbook for the game was 35.
Even with the contest heading into overtime, that wasn’t close as the game finished with 23 points.
How the Giants were in position to win was almost unbelievable. They led 10-7 in the final minute and faced a fourth-and-1 from the Jets 17.
Go for it and the game is over. If you don’t get the first down, the Jets still have to drive the field for a field goal to tie or touchdown to beat yuo.
Coach Brian Daboll opted for a field-goal attempt. Graham Gano missed.
Zach Wilson managed to get the Jets in position to tie the game with 1 second left on a field goal.
The Giants went nowhere on their drive in OT and Greg Zeurlein kicked a field go to win it for Gang Green.
This game will go down as the ugliest of the ugly in 2023.
