New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul guaranteed victory over the heavily favored Green Bay Packers next weekend, according to the New York Post.
“We’re going to win,’’ said Jason Pierre-Paul, according to the Post. “One hundred percent we’re going to win ... because we’re the best.’’
The Giants, who finished the regular season with a 9-7 record, are coming off of a dominant 24-2 victory in their NFC Wildcard matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. They will now face the Packers in Green Bay Sunday afternoon in an attempt to knock off the NFL’s top team. The Packers have suffered just one loss in 2011, a week 15 defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs that crushed their hopes for an undefeated season. The reigning Super Bowl Champions second closest loss, however, was to the New York Giants in Week 13 when they narrowly escaped victory with a 38-35 come from behind win in MetLife Stadium.
