The New York Giants haven’t been mum on how they’re approaching Sunday’s NFC East showdown with the rival Dallas Cowboys.
Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said the Giants would “put it on” the Cowboys, adding that “there’s going to be a lot of blood spilled out there.” Safety Will Hill is in lockstep with this plan to be ultra-physical with Dallas, saying he and the other members of the secondary will rough up Dez Bryant because he “doesn’t like to be touched, like most receivers in this league. But really him. He doesn’t like to be touched.”
The noise coming from the Northeast doesn’t come as any surprise to the comparitively quiet Dallas locker room.
“You know they have something to say every time we play them,” defensive end DeMarcus Ware said, per ESPN Dallas. “They try to put the gas on the fire every time. It’s an NFC East game, that’s what we do.”
Saying nothing (even when they’re saying something) has become an earmark of the Cowboys under Jason Garrett, and it’s not hard to see why when you hear Garrett himself speak.
“I don’t know there’s a correlation between what you say during the week and you’re intensity during the game,” Garrett said. “We’re getting ourselves ready to play this game. They’re a good football team. We have a great respect for their players, their coaches, their organization, and we’re going to prepare our best this week to play our best on Sunday.”
