New York Giants' Jason Pierre-Paul runs a drill during an NFL football practice, Friday, Jan. 13, 2012, in East Rutherford, N.J. The Giants are scheduled to play the Green Bay Packers in an NFC divisional playoff game on Sunday, Jan.15, in Green Bay, Wis.

GREEN BAY, Wis. — All-Pro defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul hasn't been shy about expressing his confidence that the New York Giants can beat the Green Bay Packers in Sunday's divisional playoff game at Lambeau Field.

And if they do, Pierre-Paul likely will be in the middle of it all.

While there is no proven formula for stopping Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense, getting pass rush pressure without blitzing and dropping more players into coverage would be a good start. So a big day by Pierre-Paul and his fellow defensive linemen could go a long way toward helping the Giants knock off the Super Bowl champs.

Facing one of the best defensive lines in the game, Rodgers says he still needs to be patient and go through his progressions — to a point.
