DE KERRY WYNN
For the third consecutive week, the Giants will be going up against one of the best rushing offenses in the NFL. This time, it's San Francisco, which is fifth in the league averaging 130.3 yards per game on the ground. For the Giants, no one has been better at stopping the run than defensive end Kerry Wynn. He is tied for third on the team with 16 solo tackles, including two for losses last week against Buffalo.
"I think Kerry Wynn has been one of our more consistent, dependable, physical, fast football players, and we've needed it obviously out there at defensive end," defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo said. "All these offensive systems, especially the one coming in here, are going to test your edges and the guys at the defensive end spot. I texted Kerry, it might have been two days ago, because I was watching practice tape. A lot of complimentary things to say because of how he had been playing, and certainly that way in the game."
