It looked like the Giants were going to have one of those games. On their first drive of the game, the Washington Redskins picked apart the Giants defense, knocking more than 7 minutes off the clock and took an early 7-0 lead, with ease. By halftime, the score was tied at 14, but?Robert Griffin III had completed 16 of 17 passes in the first half and it looked like Big Blue's defense had finally given up on a season that is now purely based on pride.

Who knows what was said in visitor's locker room, but whatever it was, it worked. The Giants defense, led by veteran Justin Tuck who bowed inside FedEx Field?four times last night, took over in the second half and held Washington to just 96 yards in the remaining two quarters.

A clutch play by Will Hill to strip Pierre Garcon in the late minutes of the fourth quarter would seal a victory for the Giants, pushing?their record to 5-7, two games behind the division leaders Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles, while eliminating the Redskins from any chance of playoff contention.

For the first time in five weeks, the Giants defense will be matched up against a veteran quarterback with several offensive weapons at his disposal. Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell understands that Big Blue has had a favorable schedule over the past couple of games, with a slew of backups and rookies taking snaps, but this week against Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys, the defense will have to be prepared.

One thing that Fewell emphasized strongly to the media on Thursday was the need for the Giants defense to not get too excited against their NFC East rival. While many are calling this the Giants Super Bowl, as they sit just two games back in the division and will tie Dallas in the standings with a win on Sunday, Fewell needs his unit to keep their cool.

"I thought the preparation yesterday was very focused.? There was some learning going on today and I could tell our guys are pumped about playing this football game, we just can?t get overexcited," said Fewell. "We just have to stay within ourselves. ?I think we?re focusing much better. I think the purpose of us going out and because we?re behind in this race, we?re going out with that purpose of winning a football game, no matter what."

For the first time in a while, defensive coordinator Perry Fewell was not shy when talking about the play of his defensive unit. Throughout the Giants rough start to the season, where they lost six straight, the defense was mediocre at best. But since Big Blue has won three-in-a-row and found a way to get back into the chase in the NFC East, much of the momentum has been generated by the defense.

While the Giants run defense has been one of the best, ranking 11th in the NFL in terms of yards allowed on the ground, their secondary is finally starting to come around and make big plays down the field. Fewell believes that both the run and pass defense have found a way to work together.

For decades, the New York Giants relied upon the pass rush and pressuring the opposing the quarterback. Teams would fear the defensive line of the Giants; a unit that could change the momentum of a game instantly. One of the biggest shocks this year, has been the lack of pressure that the Giants defensive line has generated. Combined, the defensive line has a lowly seven sacks all season.

Defensive end Justin Tuck looks as if he is falling into the tail end of his impressive career, while Jason Pierre-Paul still does not seem to be fully recovered from lower back surgery that was performed at the beginning of the year.

It looked like the tape was on repeat for the New York Giants defense last night against the Chicago Bears. Going into halftime, the team had allowed 24 points, two touchdowns to Bears' WR Brandon Marshall and a last second field goal that pushed Chicago's lead to 24-14.

But after it was all said and done,?Big Blue?only allowed another three points in the second half and kept QB Jay Cutler and the potent Bears offense, relatively in check. While the defense was able to stop the bleeding, it didn't transfer over to the offense and the Giants would ultimately lose their sixth straight game this season and remain winless, with the final score tallying 27-21.

New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell has been studying the offense of the Eagles for a while now. Not just the days leading up to the game when most teams study film, but Fewell told the media he?has been preparing his defense for?Philadelphia?head coach Chip Kelly,?"when the Eagles hired him" in the offseason.

Kelly, the former Oregon Ducks?head coach, has incorporated his college-style offense, which relies heavily on the read-option and a fast-paced attack, into the Eagles playbook, but so far he has not had much success; and the Giants hope they can keep the trend going.

Quarterback pressure has been a staple?of the New York Giants for decades. A team that has been known for?its gritty defense by getting in the face of their opponent, has been anything but?that over the past three weeks, a span in which Big Blue has lost three straight games to start the season.

Three games, three losses and just three sacks on the season; an alarming statistic that has the Giants tied for last in the league with the Pittsburgh Steelers (another 0-3 team).

Coming into this week against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs, the Giants are going to have to?put pressure on Chiefs QB Alex Smith if they have any hope of forcing a mistake, something Smith has yet to do this season. Through three games, Smith, who was?acquired from the San Francisco 49ers in the offseason,?has thrown for 669 yards without an interception.

The Giants defense made sure that Peyton Manning did not have another record setting week through the air and for much of the game, a victory was within reach. One thing the Giants could not do, was figure out the balancing act by the Denver Broncos offense.

During the much anticipated Manning Bowl III,?we saw the elder brother, Peyton, run his no-huddle offense to near perfection not only with the passing attack, but also on the ground. Peyton finished with 307 yards with two touchdowns, while Broncos' RB Knowshon Moreno carried the ball 13 times for 93 yards and reached the end zone twice.

More importantly, the Giants defensive line could not force any pressure on Manning and finished the game without a single sack. DE's Justin Tuck and Jason Pierre-Paul were basically invisible on the field and behind Manning's quick offensive approach, the Giants defense was confused, leaving receivers wide open at times.?Too much time and too many options?allowed Manning to pick apart?Big Blue's defense.

It had been speculated earlier this offseason, but Mathias Kiwanuka will almost certainly be moving back to the defensive line.

Jason Pierre-Paul?s recent surgery and Justin Tuck?s string of injures over the past few seasons have all of a sudden made the depth at defensive end ? normally a position of strength for the Giants ? a bit lacking.

Even with question marks still at linebacker, Kiwanuka should factor into the Giants? rotation at defensive end. He was drafted as a d-end out of Boston College and has experience as a successful pass rusher.

Like I said, you don?t know what you?re going to get from us. We?re not consistent until somebody?s going to get fired or our backs are against the wall or it?s either all or nothing. It?s where we?re at right now. It?s either all or nothing, and we?ll be packing our stuff to get out of here early, and I ain?t trying to go home early. I want to make that run, at least get in the playoffs and show them that we can do it. That?s what we?re striving for and hopefully we can get there.

The Giants have to figure out how to revive their dormant pass rush, starting with DE Jason Pierre-Paul

from Jared Kruger / SNYGiants contributor

What is going on with Jason Pierre-Paul? Last season, Pierre Paul had 16.5 sacks and 86 combined tackles en route to being named to the NFL's ALL Pro team. This year through fourteen games, he has only 6.5 sacks, the last one coming Nov 4 against Pittsburgh. That's five games without a sack, for those who are counting.

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.

The Giants have had the benefit in their recent history of developing extremely talented defensive ends. Even when it seemed the team had a surplus along the D-line, General Manager Jerry Reese continued to strengthen the team?s main strength.

Reese drafted Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck, Matthias Kiwanuka and Jason Pierre-Paul, all of whom have been productive NFL players.

But it seems that to start this season, the Giants defensive front just can?t muster a consistent attack against opposing quarterbacks.

We all know that on paper, the Giants have one of the best if the not the best defensive line in football. Every year, it seems the team develops another super-athletic defensive end to add to the mix.

However, through the first four games, the Giants have struggled getting pressure on opposing quarterbacks, and even when they do, they can?t seem to finish the play by recording a sack.

The Giants have 8.0 combined sacks in four games, averaging just 2.0 per game. This mark ties them for 17th in the NFL. Last season, the Giants were tied for third in the NFL with 48.0 sacks in 16 games, for an average of 3.0 per game.

Giants' defensive lineman Jason Pierre Paul (JPP) has been named the Defensive Player of the Month in the NFC for the month of December/January.

The second-year wonderkind has had a whale of a season and has racked up statistics that rival franchise greats Lawrence Taylor and Michael Strahan.

Feedback from the Eagles vs. Falcons game on Sunday Night Football.

1. TIGHT END - the Eagles are struggling to cover Tony Gonzalez.? Yes, it is understandable that #88 is a first ballot hall of famer; however, the quick Eagles defensive back field struggle against the tight end.? Gonzalez has 2 TD so far.

The Giants have no tight end to speak off.?? This is a weapon that could clearly make a difference for the Giants.

What do Giant fans have to look forward to on Monday night?

Lets get behind the numbers.?? For starters, I don't think anyone in the NFL would say that the Eagles pass rush is better than the New York Giants and if Justin Tuck plays it's no contest.??

The Eagles has 5 sacks and 11 QB?hits in last weeks game.? You could expect Kiwi, Tolley and JPP to match those numbers and it wouldn't surprise me to see a safety or corner blitz thrown in a handful of times.
