EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The way the New York Giants' defensive line is playing the past two games, Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan better be ready to duck this weekend.
After a season of waiting and hoping that their D-Line would wake up, the Giants have seen their front go into high gear with the season on the line, recording 11 sacks against the Jets and Cowboys in making the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
Ten of the sacks came from the front four, with Jason Pierre-Paul, Justin Tuck, Chris Canty and Osi Umenyiora doing most of the damage.
It puts Atlanta in a tough spot heading into their wild-card game on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
