Giants' Victor Cruz: 'We need to get a victory'

The New York Giants won the Super Bowl last season. Along the way, however, they lost twice to the NFC East rival Washinngton Redskins. Well, the Redskins visit MetLife Stadium this Sunday, and wide receiver Victor Cruz says the team is determined not to let that happen again.

Cruz visited with Mike Francesa this week on WFAN. Below is what Cruz had to say about the Redskins.

On their next opponent, Washington, who beat them twice last season:

"Last year they came out and flat-out just punched us in the mouth. We weren't ready for those games and we weren't prepared to play. They were our opener last year and we came down there and we didn't play well. And the second time around, it was tough for us and they stopped our run and they did a good job of playing against us. And it was a tough game. So this time around, I feel like it's a different team, different mindset that we have, and we're going to be up for this game, no question about it."

On the potential to overlook the Redskins after such a big win out west:

"Not at all. We need to get a victory in this game and we need to come out early and establish what the game is going to be like. And I think not only myself and the offense, but the entire team knows what type of game this is going to be. And we've gotta come prepared."
