Michael:** With the defense getting back key players like defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul and cornerback Prince Amukamara, will the Giants' numbers improve?
I do expect the Giants' defense to improve in the final five games. JPP should be more active and productive now that he's had a couple of games to shake off the rust. With Prince back to play opposite of DRC, the Giants have one of the league's best corner tandems.
J.T. Thomas has been a steady performer at linebacker all season. That's a potential upgrade at all three levels of the defense. The Giants' defenders have not been pleased with their performance, and are determined to improve down the stretch. The table seems to be set for them to do just that.
