This weed..I think.. is growing in my lawn in central jersey. How can I get rid of it without killing the good grass?

The weed looks like nutsedge. See the attached photo and control from our website http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/yellow-nutsedge

Nutsedge is difficult to control because of the nutlets in the ground that germinate throughout the summer. For this reason more than one application of an herbicide may be needed and control may not be achieved in one season.
