Jacobs: 'The Packers' time was last year'

By Kevin Seifert

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The New York Giants are a confident bunch, aren't they?

They began expressing it early last week, when defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul guaranteed a victory Sunday over the Green Bay Packers. So you won't be surprised to hear that running back Brandon Jacobs turned up the heat this weekend.

"The Packers' time was last year," Jacobs told ESPN's Rachel Nichols. "It's our time now."

My guess is the Packers grin and file away each of these statements. They haven't won 21 of their past 22 games by overreacting to their opponents. Fortunately, everyone involved will have an opportunity to settle this in the only way that matters -- on the field -- later Sunday afternoon.

Back with you soon from Lambeau Field.
