The New York Giants next challenge isn't inspiring a whole lot of fear in the team. The Giants are preparing to take on the 2-7 Chicago Bears in Week 11, who are now without their star wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey.
With the Giants' defense finally coming together following an offseason spending spree, the team isn't overly concerned with the prospect of facing Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.
"We are not too worried about Cutler," defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said, according to Brandon Estrict of bigblueview.com. "We have to be, but our job is to play the run first and get to the pass second. But as long as we keep playing good ball, we will be alright."
Cutler will be without his top target Jeffrey, who was suspended for four games on Monday for a violation of the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy. This isn't going to help his team's passing game in the least.
The Giants' pass-rush has been solid, and is set to power New York to its first playoff appearance since winning the Super Bowl in 2011. With Cutler left without his favourite target, expect the Giants' to get to the quarterback.
