But don’t look for their owners to spike the football. Mum was the word about the unexpected local success Tuesday at the NFL’s fall meeting in Manhattan.

As for Daniel Jones’ performance: “He’s doing very well.”
Owner not providing any headlines today.

Jets owner Woody Johnson on both Jets & Giants being up at same time:
“Oh it’s great. I came into the hotel. This hotel is filled, sold out. That’s great news; great news for the city, great news for the country. New York has to win. We’re kinda the center of everything, right?”

This is not all that surprising. All of these guys have had the anvil dropped on their heads so often in recent years. Especially Mara, who has to realize there has been a smoke-and-mirrors aspect to the Giants’ hot start. And they’re all also petrified that if they talk long enough, someone is going to ask them about Dan Snyder.
