What did Jets special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff do on his weekend off after the Jets' Thanksgiving Day win over the Bengals? He watched a high school football game.

The Giants should take a cue from Westhoff and get back to basics after turnovers plagued them in consecutive losses to Dallas and Philadelphia.

Our folks are mixed on Big Blue in Sunday's matchup against Jacksonville. T-Rock and Glauber are going with the G-Men (-7), while Boell and Boone are going with the AFC South-leading Jags.

As for me, I'm going with the Giants. But who knows? After last week's stellar 13-3 record, I dropped all three Thanksgiving Day games.

Glauber and I are tied for the Newsday lead at 88-72-4.
