The New York Giants did a lot of trash talking of the Dallas Cowboys in the week leading up to their Sunday match up. They were oozing confidence heading into the game on a win-streak.
“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.”
The Cowboys were content to stay quiet.
“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.”
The Cowboys ultimately won and were boasting on Twitter, that is when Giants defensive end Justin Tuck scoreboarded the Cowboys fans.
