The New York Giants talked a lot of trash to the Dallas Cowboys this week and found themselves in a 14-3 hole. The talk came mainly from the defensive players.
“No doubt. We’re gonna win this game. You can tell ‘em, put it on the bulletin board, it doesn’t matter because we have to win this game. Our season is on the line right now,” cornerback Terrell Thomas said on SiriusXM NFL Radio, via Pro Football Talk.
“We’re going to put it on them, man,” defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said, via Dan Graziano of ESPN.com. “I’m pretty sure the offense is going to get going. The defense is going to get going even more. And the special teams will contribute to it.
“It’s going to be a fight. It’s going to be a dogfight. There’s going to be a lot of blood spilled out there.”
Running back Brandon Jacobs is doing his part. He broke off this 36-yard run and almost got into the end zone. Unfortunately, it didn’t lead to a touchdown.
