The New York Giants did a lot of talking in the week leading up to the Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. Mainly it was the defense vowing to get the best of 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’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.”

Defensive lineman Mathias Kiwanuka hit quarterback Tony Romo late and drew a flag. It looked like he tried to lay off the hit but still hooked Romo’s helmet. The play wiped out a fumble by Cole Beasley who caught the pass. The ball was knocked loose and the Giants had recovered. That made Tom Coughlin upset.
