Poll: Is Connecticut Jets, Giants or Patriots Country?

Update on Oct. 10 at 9 a.m.

On Monday, the question was asked whether you root for the New York Giants, New York Jets or New England Patriots. Considering today's matchup, it's an apt question to ask once again. The Jets (2-2) take on the Patriots (3-1) in Massachusetts at 4 p.m..

Without an NFL team of it's own, Connecticut's allegiances are split. As of Friday, 34 percent of respondents picked Big Blue, nine percent picked the Jets, 18 percent chose the Patriots and the rest root for other teams. Depending on how today's game goes, could the numbers slide in the Jets' favor?

Original Story

The Nutmeg State is a state without a football team. But that doesn't stop Connecticut residents from rallying behind their favorite team on game day.

While there are fans of all stripes, geographic proximity has made the state home to loyal fans of one of the New York teams -- the Jets and Giants -- and New England's tried and true - the Patriots.

In this first poll in our daily series, we want to know who you root for. And don't forget to show some team pride in the comments below and tell everyone why your squad is the best.
