The New York Giants are hosting their NFC East rivals the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. The week building up to this game has been filled with trash talking, mainly from the Giants directed at the Cowboys.
“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 had six turnovers in the first game, we felt we gave that one away,” Thomas said. “As bad as we played on offense . . . as bad as we could have played on defense, we felt like we really could have won that game. And it really just kind of led to the 0-6 start, that we didn’t win that game kind of left a bad taste in our mouth. So it’s definitely a redemption game for us. . . . So come Sunday you’re going to get the best out of the Giants and it’s gonna be one of the classic Giants-Cowboys games.”
“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.”
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is content to let the Giants do the talking.
“It happens sometimes, they’re getting on a roll and they understand how important this football game is,”Romo said, via ESPN Dallas. “And we’re going to put our head down and go to work and let everybody else out there talk.”
Things are about at a boiling point as the sides started talking at the middle of the field.
