The opening loss to Dallas on Wednesday night was the first time since the 2010 season finale that the All-Pro defensive end didn’t have a sack against an NFC East team.
Of the six divisional games last year, Pierre-Paul got to the quarterback each time, 9.0 in total. He’s not concerned with individual stats, but being blanked spoke to a larger frustration during the Giants’ 24-17 loss.
“You win some and you lose some,” said Pierre-Paul, who had four tackles. “When you could have won, you get frustrated at that. But it is what it is. We’ve got to come in, we’ve got lots of work to do, and need to put it behind us and move forward and move onto the next game.”
The Giants had multiple chances to get off the field during the second half, but Tony Romo and the Cowboys offense managed to buy just enough time to keep drives alive.
During their three scoring drives in the second half that amounted to 17 points, the Cowboys managed to eat up 15:13 off the clock. For the game, Dallas controlled the time of possession 34:07 to 25:53.
“We’ve got some work to do,” Pierre-Paul said. “We’ve definitely got some work to do, and we’re never satisfied. We’ve got to get to work tomorrow, and we’re going to go over film and watch it. We definitely have some work to do.”
