    G-Men Need To Keep An Eye On RG3

    What will the Giants be doing in the locker room before their Sunday revenge match with the Cowboys in Dallas?

    The Jets' Key? Start Fast, for Starters

    Do you want to know if this is really going to be the Jets' year? Here's your clue. It's not whether they beat the Jacksonville Jags this Sunday.
