In 2014, North Dakota State’s Marcus Williams found himself without a job after all 32 NFL teams passed on him during the NFL draft. Today, Williams finds himself competing for the starting cornerback job with the New York Jets, thanks to the hard work and dedication he put into his craft. After a 10-6 season, the Jets are NFL betting favorites to make the playoffs, and with Tom Brady sitting out the first four games of the season because of a suspension, they have a great chance to win the AFC East as well.

As you may already know, the MetLife Stadium which is located at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey, US, is one of the most amazing American football stadiums ever built. This is also the only National Football League stadium that is the home to two teams, which are the New York Jets and the New York Giants.
