2012 Super Bowl, Giants Vs. Patriots: Osi Umenyiora Vs. Matt Light, Round 3?

Maybe it is a good thing that since the playoffs began the New York Giants have been using defensive end Osi Umenyiora on both sides rather than just his customary spot on the right end.

While meeting with reporters today Umenyiora made reference to the fact that he has been in two fights during his NFL career, and both are with New England Patriots left tackle Matt Light.

“There’s something he’s doing that reeeealy gets under my skin,” Umenyiora said.

Umenyiora jokingly added that since he no longer plays every down he might pick a third fight with Light and try to get him thrown out so Jason Pierre-Paul and Justin Tuck can “have a field day.”

After missing the final four games of the regular season with a severe ankle injury Umenyiora has been a pass-rushing force for the Giants in the playoffs. He has 3.5 sacks and a forced fumble in three playoff games.
