The New York Jets are continuing to find success with their rushing game as it's the main formula they will use throughout the season. Expect to see the Jets to continue having a dominating running attack against the Giants as they will get their first glimpse of true smash-mouth football.

Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will get some good playing time in this game as he continues to emerge as one of the top at his position in the NFL. The Giants made a smart move acquiring him during the offseason, and he's been a great acquisition so far on the team. Expect to see him disrupt the Jets' aerial attack every time they attempt to throw his way.

The Jets have a glaring question mark when it comes to what they can expect out of their defensive secondary. They're trying to put a band-aid on the situation at the moment by converting safety Antonio Allen into a cornerback, but so far it hasn't been working at all. The Jets got hit hard with injuries and are now questioning whether they made the right move in not acquiring a solid cornerback via free agency as more insurance.

2. Calvin Pryor Will Continue Dominance

In his NFL debut, safety Calvin Pryor had a phenomenal game and lived up to his nickname of "Bonecrusher". He was knocking players out like there was no tomorrow and played with determination to do whatever it takes to succeed. Expect to see some heavy hitting from one of the brighter spots on the Jets' defensive secondary.

The Giants have been trying to execute their brand new West Coast offense and have been struggling heavily in understanding everything that encompasses it. Expect to see players still have hiccups here and there, especially quarterback Eli Manning who seems unable to get in sync with the fast tempo that comes with what offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo is trying to instill. It will take much more time than expected for everything to gel.
