This may be the Battle for New York, but it's being played in New Jersey. So while the two teams are battling for the hearts and minds of the entire tri-state area, who is the Goarden State's Governor pulling for?

"J-E-T-S! Jets! Jets! Jets!," Governor Chris Christie said today in an appearance on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Radio channel. "Absolutely. Rex and the boys win by seven."

Perhaps Christie and Ryan have hit it off in the Big&Tall stores of New Jersey?

"I like both Coach Coughlin and Coach Ryan, but this is a Jets win," Christie predicted. "The Jets are going to step up. The Jets have been the more consistent team this year. The Jets are going to win.”
