Giants Vs. Packers, NFL Playoffs 2012: Pierre-Paul Backs Off Guarantee

You can't blame Jason Pierre-Paul for his enthusiasm. After all, his defense had just pitched a virtual shutout against a good Atlanta Falcons offense in a 24-2 win that the New York Giants hope to be the first of many during the 2012 NFL Playoffs. Following the game, Pierre-Paul said "100 percent we're going to win" in reference to this week's game against the Green Bay Packers. In an interview with WFAN on Tuesday, he admitted he had been little too exuberant.

"Of course I said that," Pierre-Paul said. "I'm not going to twist my words. But it's the simple fact that we won, and it was exciting.

"If we go out and do our jobs, we should win."

Pierre-Paul clarified even further.

"If the defense, offense and special teams, if we all do our job then and go out and executed like we did on Sunday, we should win."

There is no denying that the Giants are playing arguably their best football of the season, with three straight victories at their backs all won by at least two touchdowns. The defending Super Bowl champion Packers are entirely different animal altogether, however, coming in at No. 1 in this week's SB Nation NFL power rankings as they have throughout the regular season.
