Jacobs: 'I am on top of the world'
By Matt Mosley
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Perhaps there's no one on the Giants' sideline who enjoys beating the Cowboys more than running back Brandon Jacobs. He was very emotional before the game, but he conserved enough energy to break free for a 74-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter. Jacobs was elated about the Giants' sweep of the Cowboys this season after Sunday's 31-24 victory.
"Oh my god, no question," he said. "This is so good that we came out. This is the first time in five years where we have beaten the Cowboys twice in one season and it makes me feel like I am on top of the world. Now we have to keep going and it is possible that we could play them again. We are not scared of them. We just played a great football game out there. We have Philadelphia in front of us now and we have to go out and do the same."
Jacobs also said that he had been doing a "terrible" job as a leader on offense this season and he's vowed to do better. Seems like Sunday was a pretty good start.
