OUR PICK: With how off the two starting quarterbacks have looked in recent weeks, the under appears to be a safe bet tonight. The Giants improved their defense this offseason with the additions of Olivier Vernon (who had a sack last week) and Janoris Jenkins (three tackles), while the Jets will once again have a strong defense under head coach Todd Bowles. With the total sitting at 43 points, look for tonight's game to be a defensive struggle throughout.
