There's no place like home (except New Jersey)

Three upper-middle-sized 'dogs come through for players in our charity pro football pool today: Detroit, Miami, and Arizona prevail.

We know that the New York Jets are a team that likes to be loud and proud about their exploits. They're a team with a lot of swagger even when things are not going well, which they haven't been of late.
