EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Defense for the New York Giants starts with the front four.
Stopping the run and forcing the opposition into passing situations will let loose possibly the best group of pass rushers in the NFL. It was the formula the Giants used in 2008 in pounding Tom Brady and stunning the previously unbeaten New England Patriots in the Super Bowl — and the game plan hasn’t changed for next weekend’s title game rematch in Indianapolis.
The Giants (12-7) want Brady on edge every time he passes. Throw a ball. Expect to be hit. Even the threat of being hit might be enough to influence a play. And that just might be the difference.
“Look at ‘07. That was pretty much the reason why we were in the game, because we kept him off-rhythm,” defensive end and captain Justin Tuck said. “Obviously he is the main reason why (they) are successful. The way to kill the snake is to take off his head. The way to kill an offense as potent as that one is making sure you take care of Brady. Our defensive front will put a lot of pressure on itself to make sure that we do our best to get after him.”
