A new playing surface has been installed at MetLife Stadium, home of the New York Giants and Jets, where the previous turf had become an object of widespread criticism.

While not grass, the new surface is believed to be an improved synthetic turf that will decrease the number of injuries that occur at the stadium.

The two New York teams will now play on an updated version of FieldTurf -- a recent edition called FieldTurf Core system, which is the first multilayer dual-polymer monofilament fiber.
