Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is well aware that this week’s matchup against the Panthers is a must win game for them.
“I think we have to win (Sunday). Every game’s a must-win for us, regardless of who we’re playing, home or away, every game’s a must-win for us, and we have to do that. We’re excited for the opportunity,” said Curz via the NY Daily news.
“I think you just want to get that first win under your belt,” he said. “Once you get that first one, you feel like the rest will kind of flow and (you) kind of get into a groove a little bit. We understand we just have to get that first win under our belt and we’ll go from there. It’s always a sense of urgency to win a ballgame whether you’re 2-0 or 0-2, so we’re just looking forward to Week 3 and we’ll go from there.”
Cruz says they can look at the 2007 Giants team that started out 0-2 as motivation since they ended up winning the Super Bowl.
“Even if you weren’t a part of that team, it’s definitely motivation to see how they battled back from that and won the Super Bowl,” he said. “We definitely use that as motivation, but we have to write our own story and understand how we want this season to go for ourselves. So we’re taking it one game at a time, but ’07 will definitely be motivation for the rest of this season moving forward.”
Even though the Panthers have been struggling as well, this week’s game won’t be any easier than their previous matchups with the Broncos and Cowboys. The NFL is a week by week league.

The New York Giants have always built there defense around the pass rush. They rely on the ability to rush the quarterback to help their defense stop the pass.

The answer is Jason Pierre-Paul.
