New York Giants vs. New York Jets – A Scheduling Oddity

Through the year 2007, the New York Giants have played the New York Jets on eight occasions since 1984 (the year the Jets started playing games at the same stadium as the Giants).  The odd thing this causes is that one of these teams, based on which team is designated the visiting team for each game, has to play the game as the visiting team in their own home stadium.

The Giants record in these eight games is 6 wins and 2 losses (which would obviously make the Jets 2-6).  But, who is the more successful visiting team in their own stadium?  That goes to the Giants as well with a 3-1 record as the visiting team in New Jersey, which of course makes the Jets 1-3 “on the road at home”.
