The 2021 NFL season is in full swing, and just about every fan of either the Giants, Jets, or Eagles, is disappointed in one way or another with their team's performance so far.

As if you needed another reason to watch: Below is a list of active NFL players who were born right here in New Jersey. I also threw in two Jersey-born head coaches as well.

Without any further ado...
