The New York Jets host the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football while the New York Giants play the Cleveland Browns Sunday.
The Jets have one of the toughest opponents in the league with the Texans, who come into the game undefeated and looking like perhaps the best team in the AFC. Houston has laid waste to the competition thus far, while New York looked lost last Sunday during a 34-0 thrashing at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers.
As for Big Blue, they'll be desperate for a win following a heart-breaker against the Philadelphia Eagles. Eli Manning and company will seek to beat a Browns team that hasn't shown much punch offensively with rookie Brandon Weeden under center. With a victory, New York could grab a share of the NFC East lead depending on what Philadelphia does.
The Eagles will be on the road to play a Pittsburgh Steelers team that is rested coming off its bye week. Head coach Mike Tomlin has stated he expects a full compliment of players back on defense with Troy Polamalu and James Harrison looking to return.
