New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul pointed out that the Philadelphia Eagles have won a lot of close games and could have easily been 0-4.
The Philadelphia Eagles are tied for the best record in the NFL as they sit at 4-1, and many of their wins have been by close margins. They are set to face the New York Giants, who have been on fire with a three-game winning streak.
Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has noticed these close victories as well and made a brashly bold statement about the Eagles.
“They could have easily been 0-4. The games were close. You know it, too! I watch TV. You watch TV, too. The games were close. I feel like we shouldn’t go out there and make it a close game,” the defensive end told Newsday.
The Giants are closing in on a tie for first place in the NFC East, which will happen if they beat the Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys lose to the Seattle Seahawks.
While Pierre-Paul may be foolish to dismiss the Eagles’ winning record, they have won a lot of close games. All of their wins have been by six points or less, and they rallied from a 17-0 deficit against the winless Jacksonville Jaguars.
