defensive tackle

After releasing Chris Canty yesterday, the Giants re-signed another veteran defensive tackle, Shaun Rogers.

Rogers was expected to contribute significantly along the Giants' defensive line last season, but the 13-year veteran was placed on injured reserve on Aug. 31 with a blood clot.

Finally, the Giants defensive front got consistent pressure on an opposing quarterback. Ironically, this strong up-front performance came against arguably the league?s best offensive line in the San Francisco 49ers.

Of note, the Giants did an impeccable job stopping the run against the league?s top rushing team.

On a good number of plays, Jason Pierre-Paul, normally a defensive end, lined up at the defensive tackle position. Maybe it was just being able to see the game from a different angle, but JPP seemed to thrive in this role, recording three tackles, two sacks and a pass deflection.
