Seven games into a disappointing season, Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling he’s back. Just not all the way back.
The New York Giants (0-6) quest for their first victory of the regular season continues on Monday night, as the team plays host to the Minnesota Vikings (1-4) at the Meadowlands. New York has had a solid ten days off after their 27-21 defeat to the hands of the Chicago Bears, but the time off may not have helped their injury situation. The Vikings got run out of their own building on Sunday, losing 35-10 to the Carolina Panthers, and have designated recently signed quarterback Josh Freeman as their starter against the G-men.
The Giants’ 0-6 start is the worst for the organization since it lost a franchise-worst nine in a row in 1976, a season that saw coach Bill Arnsparger fired after seven games.
It has to happen Sunday against the Eagles, though. Already, just a quarter of the way through the schedule, the Giants are running out of chances.
Heading into Week 5 against the Eagles at MetLife Stadium, the Giants’ wait for Jason Pierre-Paul continues.
