Jets play early mind games
By James Walker
The New York Jets are not just good at trash-talking. Apparently, they're pretty good at pre-game pranks, as well.
The Jets continued to one-up the Giants this week right up until their 1 p.m. kickoff. According to the Associated Press, the Jets put black curtains over the Giants' four Super Bowl logos Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
A pair of Giants players reportedly removed the curtains, but a Jets official put them back up. Although the two teams share the stadium, this is considered a home game for the Jets. Therefore, the Jets felt free to do whatever they wanted.
The Jets lead the Giants, 7-0, at the end of the first quarter.
