Giants Thursday Morning Bathroom Reader |
Pierre-Paul has 12½ sacks among his 61 tackles, and comes off his most impactful performance. He was so dangerous against Dallas last Sunday night that the Cowboys took to double-teaming him on nearly every play, yet Pierre-Paul had eight tackles, a forced fumble, two sacks – one for a safety – and, for good measure, blocked a final-seconds field goal that could have tied the game.

Tom Coughlin: Don’t Sleep on Redskins |
Coughlin: "We’re in the division again with a big game this week against Washington. Don’t be fooled by the record. Washington has played very, very well. They’ve given everybody their A-game and taken literally all but a couple of these games right to the wire. The New England game, they rushed for 170 yards. They had an opportunity to tie that game at the end of the game. They actually had a touchdown called back with an offensive pass interference penalty. But they played very well. They’re 17th on offense. They’re 10th on defense. They have the number one kickoff coverage team in football. They have the number seven punt coverage team. They have the ability to strike offensively. Their defense is outstanding – the two outside backers. London Fletcher, DeAngelo Hall, we can name any list of names. They’re very formidable. They’re very physical. They beat us in the opening game of the year down there….They play hard. They play hard every week. It will be no different this week."
