Top-5 Jason Pierre-Paul moments

5. JPP gets first career sack vs. Jacksonville, second seals victory (Nov. 28, 2010)

The 15th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, Pierre-Paul notched his first of 42 career sacks when he took down Jaguars quarterback David Garrard late in the third quarter of a Week 12 matchup. The rookie grabbed another on Jacksonville's final drive to preserve a 24-20 home victory for the Giants. Pierre-Paul forced fumbles on both plays, but Garrard was able to recover them.

4. JPP sacks Vick in Philadelphia (Sept. 25, 2011)
In a game that started to set the tone for the Giants' 2011 Super Bowl season and launch Pierre-Paul's breakout campaign, the second-year defensive end sacked the elusive Michael Vick in a 29-16 victory at Lincoln Financial Field. Pierre-Paul notched another in the fourth quarter on backup Mike Kafka, bringing his sack total to 4.5 in the first three weeks.

3. JPP takes down Romo for a safety (Dec. 11, 2011)
Pierre-Paul will long be remembered for how he ended one of the most thrilling regular-season games in Giants history against the Cowboys. But he also started it with a big play, tripping up quarterback Tony Romo in the end zone for a safety and the first points of the game.

2. Two interceptions returned for TDs (Oct. 28, 2012 at Dallas / Nov. 17, 2013 vs. Green Bay)
Pierre-Paul has two career interceptions, and he returned both for scores. The first was a 2012 meeting with the Cowboys when Pierre-Paul ran it back 28 yards. The second went for 24 yards off Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien. Both led to victories.

1. JPP blocks last-second FG in Dallas (Dec. 11, 2011)
Capping a 12-point comeback in the fourth quarter by the Giants, Pierre-Paul blocked Dan Bailey's 47-yard field goal that would have tied the game for the Cowboys with six seconds remaining. The road victory kept the Giants in postseason contention as they went on to win Super Bowl XLVI.
