Around the locker room


After his two touchdowns in Philadelphia, Victor Cruz was asked what it feels like to walk into the team facility the day after:

"It feels good. You actually feel like you have a good home and you feel like you can do things week in, week out against top talent. It just felt good to go into Philly and get that win. That meant a lot for our team, and I think our confidence is sky high right now."

Chris Canty, who has been with the Giants since 2009, talked about the road victory:

"It's a good division win on the road – we'll take it. It's the first time we've beaten the Eagles since I've been here. So that's big for us. We'll take the win, but again, we look forward to the next challenge. It's a stepping stone. It's a stepping stone."

Mathias Kiwanukawas asked if the Giants defense was able to confuse the Eagles offensive line:

"I think we did a good job of that – not just the line but their offense in general. Whenever you have different groups of guys running in and out, you're able to get different looks and it's tough on an offense."Kiwanukacommented on building some momentum:

"It was a big win. It's in the division, and it's putting us in a good position going forward. I think that's the biggest thing. There is a lot said about this rivalry and we always want to get this win."Kiwanuka was then asked about the work of rookie linebackers Greg Jones and Jacquian Williams, who led the team with 10 tackles.

"I think a lot was thrown on Jones' shoulders early on, and he did a very good job of absorbing it and taking on that task. And then from the way that Jacquian was going about his practice and meetings, everybody knew he was a special talent. He's obviously physically gifted, but he's also now putting everything together and he's going to be a good addition to this team."
