07:05 AM ET 12.21 | By late Tuesday afternoon, there were 2,345 tickets left on sale for the big game Saturday on StubHub, priced at anywhere from $38.50 to $6,050 apiece. There were another 1,277 available on eBay, and then 1,998 remaining on NFL Ticket Exchange, selling for anywhere from $199 to $10,000. This is a Jet home game on Saturday, but anybody who pretends to know who will actually show up at MetLife Stadium is kidding himself. It's Christmas Eve. There are bills to be paid, relatives to pick up at the airport, and experience would indicate there will be plenty of enemy jerseys in the stands, rooting against the designated home team. How much do Jet fans love their team? We're about to find out, around kickoff time on Saturday, whether Lawrence Taylor was right years ago when he said Jet fans are just Giant fans who can't get Giant tickets.

No matter who the home team would be, there would be extra tickets available and the visiting team's fans would snatch some of them up. Either way, it should be a great atmosphere for a game.

What's the over/under on empty seats? Then again, after two piss-poor games last week, what's the over/under on people who actually care at this point?

December 21, 2011  07:24 AM ET

I can answer that question--- No one cares.

I'd rather be in Dallas watching the Eagles kick the Cowboys around like punks again.

It could happen. then again, they could do what they did to the Eagles last year and stomp ya good!

The NFL should sell tickets for the press conferences. That's where all the action is. The game should be free general admission.

That's like saying the one who scores the most points will win. Way to be bold.

Compared to what? The only insights you offer involve your neighbors' windows.

Jets fans are just Giants fans who can't get tickets. Not bad. Guess LT had some good lines that weren't white powder on a mirror.
