After the New York Giants 17-16 defeat to the Washington Redskins Giants safety Antrel Rolle told WFAN that he and his teammates need to get "nasty" and show the "dog" inside them.
Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul agrees with Rolle.
“I'm behind Rolle 100 percent,” Pierre-Paul said via CBSSports.com. “We've been playing like we haven't. I think we're a little soft, but I think we'll get there. We haven't played our best game this year, and I know that for a fact."
Pierre-Paul added via NFL.com: "As a defense, we have to make a statement," Pierre-Paul said. "We haven't made a statement ever since, I'll say, San Francisco. Well, I'm lying, because we did beat up on Green Bay quite a little bit. But, ever since then, we haven't made a statement. We've just been losing. And we're all not playing together. When you're a team, on an organization like this, you've got to play together as one.
"Otherwise, you'll keep going downhill."
Giants now hold just a one game lead in the NFC East over the Dallas Cowboys and Redskins.
The Giants final four games include the New Orleans Saints at home Dec. 9, the Atlanta Falcons away Dec. 16, the Baltimore Ravens away Dec. 23 and the Philadelphia Eagles at home Dec. 30.
