Giants DC Shares His Jalen Hurts Expectations For Saturday
The New York Giants defeated the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, 31-24.
This was the Giants’ first playoff victory since 2011, the year that they won the Super Bowl.
After taking down the Vikings, the Giants will have to focus their attention on their division rival, the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles have defeated the Giants in both of their matchups this season, but the Giants’ defensive coordinator believes that this week, they will be extra prepared.

Wink Martindale is one of the most outspoken coaches across the league, and he was seen yesterday making a few comments about Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts.
Hurts was recently taken off of the injury report but had previously been suffering from a shoulder injury.
Even though Hurts is off the injury report and is allegedly in full health, it is difficult to beat the same team on three separate occasions in a season.
The league moved from a 16-game season to a 17-game season in 2021.
Whether the players like it or not, one extra game adds extra fatigue and extra stress to one’s body.
The Eagles have dominated this season, finishing the year with a 14-3 record.
Even though Hurts is healthy, the jury is still out on what the health of their offensive line is like.
In the playoffs, one snap can be the difference between a win and a loss.
With the Giants’ opportunistic defense, it is certainly not out of the realm of possibility that they could go into Philadelphia this weekend and come out with a win.
Any given Sunday.
