Russell Wilson is no Trevor Siemian.
The Giants invulnerability finally played up to its preseason expectations in last week’s win over the Broncos, sacking Siemian 4 times, picking him off twice and forcing him to fail once, but it is going to be a tad bit formidable to repeat that opening against Wilson.
The fugitive and dangerous Seahawks quarterback comes into MetLife Stadium on Sunday as the Giants try to build off their first win of the season.
Wilson, who hurts teams with both his arm and his legs, presents an intensely formidable plea for the Giants invulnerability — which will be but pass rusher Olivier Vernon for the third uninterrupted week.
“Where he’s lethal is when he can create at the back finish of the pocket,” conduct manager Ben McAdoo said. “He’s good at the top of the dump where he can set it, retreat out and come out on top of the ends on possibly side or step up and come out. Last thing we wish to do is give him a straight line where he can step up and run by the defense. So, he’s very dangerous when he can create.”
While McAdoo is examining every notation fact of Wilson’s game, Jason Pierre-Paul — who had 3 sacks last week — is holding a much easier approach.
“Easy,” Pierre-Paul said. “Just rush the quarterback.”
The defensive end, who has admittedly played feeble before to last week’s performance, may be oozing with some-more certainty than common after his three-sack game. But he still knows Wilson is able of doing damage.

“Look, he’s a special kind of guy. He’ll be descending down and he’ll chuck the round down margin and he gets the completion,” Pierre-Paul said. “So, we really we got to get there.”
Prior to last week, the Giants invulnerability had just eight sacks on the deteriorate and Pierre-Paul was noticeably absent with just 1.5 by 5 games.
The veteran, who sealed a four-year, $62 million agreement with $40 million guaranteed, pronounced before the deteriorate started that he could be Defensive Player of the Year.
While he has not lived up to his own hype and has battled shoulder issues early on, his last diversion is the boost he needs to play at that caliber.

“I don’t demeanour about what we did last week, or what I’m about to do. we just take it one diversion at a time,” he said. “Whatever competition is in front of me, we figure him out and that’s when we get to work.”
Defensive line manager Patrick Graham pronounced when Pierre-Paul is on he has some “juice” that fuels the team.
The Giants may need that “juice” to stop Wilson, and Pierre-Paul left no doubt that it will be there.
“I’m going to bring the extract no matter what,” he said. “At the finish of the day, we’ve been counted out, I’ve been counted out copiousness of times, but nobody can tell you when it’s your time. As of right now, I’m going to continue personification football the best way we can — interlude the run and getting to the quarterback, pressuring the quarterback. I’m going to do all in my energy to help my group win this diversion this week.”
