Yapping at the New York Giants during the week seemingly wasn't enough for the Jets.

Rex Ryan's team stepped up the annoying tactics hours before their New York City metropolitan area showdown at MetLife Stadium by putting black curtains in front of the Giants' four Super Bowl logos outside their locker room.

Giants placekicker Lawrence Tynes and running back Brandon Jacobs both removed the curtains, only to have a Jets official move them back in front of the logo. A security guard was put in front of the curtains to prevent further tampering.

Because it's a Jets' home game, they control the displays seen in the stadium, which is co-owned by both teams. Both end zones had the Jets' logo and the MetLife logo was lit in green.

"They just decided to cover the logos," Giants co-owner John Mara said.

When asked if the Jets might have taken the higher road, Mara smiled.

"No comment," he said.

The Jets did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
