Jets Giants Stadium

Weather: Party Cloudy, 81 degrees

Not expected to play: Aaron Ross

Note: Randle El and Rock Cartwright are the current starting PR/KR 

What I am watching for:

1.) Protecting Jason - He took a few good shots this season, and now he faces the best defensive line in the NFL. I've already told me he's going to have to throw the ball in the dirt a lot, but let's try to get out of this game without any jailbreaks where he gets a helmet in the heart.

2.) Discipline. First, no stupid personal foul penalties, ESPECIALLY on 3rd downs (DeAngelo Hall). We racked up a lot of calls this pre-season...hopefully the team is on point.

3.) Horton. - With the less-than-stellar WR corps the Giants have, Horton should have a lot of blitzing opportunities. Eli should be on his back a few times.

4.) Hanesworth vs Jacobs - I mean, first play of scrimmage has to be Jacobs up the middle, right? That or a play action deep ball to Sinorice Moss. If the Redskins stop the run (big task), then the Skins will have a good shot. The Skins secondary is too good to be picked apart.
