Numbers to know for Week 8 matchup between Giants & Jets

The New York Giants host the New York Jets in MetLife Stadium on Sunday, Oct. 29. Kickoff is set for 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS.

This week's game marks the 15th regular-season meeting between the teams. However, the teams have met every summer in the preseason since 1969, excluding the 2020 pandemic year.
