Jason Pierre-Paul Guarantees Win over Packers
The Giants are feeling pretty good after winning their third straight game Sunday — a 24-2 drubbing of the Falcons. Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who had 16.5 sacks in the regular season, made 8 tackles against the Falcons, and an even stronger statement after the game.
“We’re going to win [against the Packers],” he said, according to Giants reporter Mike Garafolo. “A hundred percent we’re going to win. … Because we’re the best.”
Newsday’s Bob Glauber tweeted a similar statement from Pierre-Paul. “We’re going to go out there & give all our effort, and we’re going to walk away with the win.”
The Giants have beaten the Jets, Cowboys, and Falcons since dropping a home game to the Reskins in Week 15. They’re obviously feeling pretty confident, but putting the Packers on notice is about the last thing they should be doing. Sure they won the NFC Championship Game at Lambeau Field in the 2007 season, but this is a different Green Bay squad. Maybe the Giants should save their talking until after their win.
