This is the game Jerry Jones has been waiting for. He delivered the invitation heard ’round the NFL — and the Giants are set to RSVP.
Robert Griffin III scrambles. He executes the option. He has a whole package of other designed runs. One has to wonder whether even the Giants’ rejuvenated group can handle him.
