Jets Vs. Giants Score Update: Josh Baker's Touchdown Helps Jets Take 7-0 Lead After First Quarter

A five-yard touchdown catch from tight end Josh Baker from quarterback Mark Sanchez has helped the New York Jets take an early lead on the New York Giants, which trail 7-0 after one quarter of play at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Baker's first touchdown of the season capped a 10-play, 53-yard drive that featured Sanchez completing five passes to five different receivers. The winner of this game drastically improves their chances to earn a playoff berth.

The Jets' touchdown came after the Giants (7-7) were forced to a three-and-out on their first possession of the game. In their first offensive three possessions, the Giants' offense failed to move the ball into Jets' territory and punted three times.

On their second possession of the game, the Jets got just one first down, but were forced to punt after a 3rd-and-4 couldn't be converted.

The Giants will begin the second quarter just inside Jets territory.

Before the game, in a show of gamesmanship Jets head coach Rex Ryan sent only wide receiver Plaxico Burress out for the coin toss. Also, according to a Tweet by Newsday's Neil Best, the home-team crowd (Jets) did a good job of showing up and keeping ticket out of the Giants fans' hands.
