Justin Tuck: A+
After compiling just one sack in the Giants' first eight games, Tuck exploded Sunday, torching rookie tackle Mike Adams and attacking the edge all afternoon. He finished with a healthy stat line of five tackles, two sacks and a first-quarter pass deflection.
Jason Pierre-Paul: A+
Another Sunday, another huge game for "J.P.P."
Pierre-Paul came through on eight tackles and a sack, staying busy in run and screen defense.
Linval Joseph: A
Joseph did a good job clogging the middle, and came away with seven tackles. Joseph was matched by physical center Maurkice Pouncey for much of the game, but still made an impact.
Osi Umenyiora: A+
All three of the Giants' standout ends came away with a sack in this one. Osi sacked Ben Roethlisberger, forced a fumble and notched seven tackles. He still looks fast on the edge, but he missed a crucial 3rd-and-2 tackle on Isaac Redman in the fourth.
Rocky Bernard: B
Bernard took limited reps and finished with four tackles. With Canty still not 100 percent, his production was much-needed here.
Chris Canty: B-
Canty didn't break the pocket much, and finished with just one tackle. He was knocked over on a few runs up the middle as well, and was the clear-cut weakest member of the D-line Sunday.
