Jason Pierre-Paul had some added motivation heading into Sunday night’s matchup with the Denver Broncos.

The two-time Pro Bowl defensive end had a special celebration dance planned if he recorded a sack. The inspiration was a 7-year-old Giants fan named Hayden, who is battling cancer and met the Giants star last Friday on a visit facilitated by The Garden of Dreams Foundation.

"You know what? If I get a sack — which I am going to get a sack -- I'm going to do your dance," Pierre-Paul said.

JPP delivered not one, not two, but three sacks in a 23-10 win over the Broncos, tying a career-high for the eight-year veteran. After his first sack of Trevor Siemian in the first quarter, Pierre-Paul busted out the dance that Hayden taught him on Friday.

Hayden, along with his dad Steve, mom Amy, and 4-year-old sister Hannah, spent the day at the Quest Diagnostics Training Facility last week. Wearing a custom No. 90 jersey with his name on it, Hayden met Pierre-Paul, Damon “Snacks” Harrison, Brad Wing and many other Giants players. He also received an autographed football from the entire team.

Perhaps the most special gift Hayden received was a pair of Pierre-Paul’s gloves. After Hayden revealed he’s missing a toe due to his battle with cancer, Pierre-Paul was able to connect on a deeper level, taking his gloves off to show Hayden his scarred right hand. Pierre-Paul’s message to Hayden was clear: you can overcome any type of adversity.

“Guess what? You’re a survivor,” Pierre-Paul said. “No fear, right? No fear.”

Got three for my boy Hayden tonight and I did his dance, keep fighting buddy. #90PowerCircle
