Despite seeing their four-game win streak end last Sunday, the Giants maintained sole possession of first place in the NFC East. Heading into Week 10, they are two games up in the loss column and three in the win column ahead of Philadelphia and Dallas, both sitting at 3-5.
But Antrel Rolle isn’t getting comfortable anytime soon.
“I think it is a race, and it’s always going to be a race,” the safety said Tuesday on his weekly spot on WFAN with Joe and Evan. “First and foremost, we’ve already lost two games in the division. So for us, it’s going to be a race regardless. No matter what those other teams’ records are or no matter what a head coach is referring to as far as next season, we have to go and play our game. We can’t worry about what the Eagles are doing, what the Redskins are doing or what the Cowboys are doing. We have to go in and play Giants football.”
And what that means is executing in all three phases, something Rolle doesn’t think the Giants have done since their Week 6 victory in San Francisco.
“Since then, it’s either been offense had an up day, defense had a down day; our defense had an up day, our offense had a down day or special teams had a down day,” Rolle said. “I don’t think we’ve put all three phases of the game together since that day. I think it’s time for us to find our way back to that, and that’s how we win.”
Rolle and the Giants will have a chance to show if they can do that on Sunday against a Cincinnati team on a four-game skid.
