The Battle for New York. Big Blue against Gang Green. Rex Ryan against Tom Coughlin. Mark Sanchez against Eli Manning. Sunday's Week 16 game between the Giants and the Jets will certainly be a slugfest with plenty of playoff implications. The Jets (8-6) hold one of the AFC Wildcard slot with Cincinnati, Oakland, San Diego and Tennessee behind them. The Giants, however, are 7-7 and have to win the NFC East to make the playoffs.

So who do you think will win the Battle of New York? Will the Jets back up Rex Ryan's talk? Or will the Giants, who made plenty of trash talk of their own this week, stay in the hunt for the postseason?
