The Jets and Giants have been trading trash talk most of the week. It started with Rex Ryan saying he believed his team was the best in football.

There was a lot of jawing back and forth between the Giants wideouts and Jets secondary this week. Some one is backing up their **** talk.
The chant started from about 40 feet away from No. 24’s locker, two words lampooning comments made by Giants’ wide receivers Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks on Wednesday. “Revis sucks! Revis sucks!” cornerback Marquice Cole playfully shouted as Darrelle Revis gave his two cents about the latest ...
