The Battle of the Meadowlands looms

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

OK, that headline may be a tad over the top, but tonight's Giants-Jets game should be pretty interesting. Both teams will use this third preseason game as a dress rehearsal for the regular season. I think the Giants are hoping to get off to a strong start after being called out by head coach Tom Coughlin last week.

Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger has a nice preview up. This is a big night for the Giants' receiving corps. If Steve Smith and Domenik Hixon can make a few plays, it would help put everyone at ease heading into the regular season.

I'm also anxious to see how Ahmad Bradshaw and Danny Ware perform against a decent front seven for the Jets. We're only about 40 minutes away from kickoff. And for goodness' sakes, stop bragging about the Giants' depth or Coughlin's going to come after all of us. I heard Jim Nantz saying the Giants were "stacked" last night during the Skins-Pats game. Coughlin reportedly has a call into Nantz about the comment.
