Joyner, for the New York Times' NFL blog, "The Fifth Down," recently attempted to determine which Meadowlands squad had the better O-line group.
In the process, he came to the conclusion the Jets were better than the Giants up front and might be the class of the league.
"Going into this, I would have thought the Giants would have won this hands down, but the metrics show that isn't the case," Joyner writes.
Joyner conducted a position-by-position comparison based on point-of-attack win percentage and yards per carry (run blocking) and a formula that factors sacks allowed, quarterback hits, holding penalties and batted throws (pass protection).
Jets left guard Alan Faneca is a perennial Pro Bowler, but Rich Seubert's numbers were better last year. Jets right guard Brandon Moore is a serviceable starter, but he didn't stand a chance in matching up with All-Pro Chris Snee.
