Jason Pierre-Paul: A+
"J.P.P." and the Giants' pass rush is back.
The G-Men sacked Alex Smith six times, with Pierre-Paul responsible for two of them. He added a pass deflection on the game's first drive, and an additional quarterback hit. Pierre-Paul continues to sniff out the flat with DE Osi Umenyiora.
Linvall Joseph: A+
Joseph continues to clog the middle, making Giants fans forget about a shelved Chris Canty. Joseph finished with a sack and four total tackles.
Adrian Tracy: A
Tracy mimicked Pierre-Paul a bit Sunday, spending a bit of time on the interior and working in run defense. He notched a fourth quarter sack and had four total tackles.
Osi Umenyiora: B-
Osi was a little quiet Sunday, finishing with just one tackle. He was split out in pass coverage on a few occasions, and did come away with a QB hit.
Justin Tuck: D
Tuck's stat line reads blank after Sunday, and through week 6, he's yet to record a sack. For a perennial Pro Bowler and defensive captain, Tuck's sluggish start is certainly cause for concern.
